I wish to continue to serve the society by applying technology to improve the health and quality of life of the common man.
As an actively practicing physician, a speaker and an innovator, my mission is to not just empower healthcare providers to effectively use innovation but enable them to be a “part of innovation”.‘Dr. Darshan Gandhi is truly a thorough, caring and technically excellent physician…He has helped many of my patients with difficult problems and takes that same passion for quality patient care and creative problem solving into his leadership…”Given the complex and multi-layered health system we live in, I have engaged in several different positions, as leading Innovation/Strategy at a VC backed company, as Executive Director of Innovation/Venture Program at a large healthcare system and practicing Oncologist, within hospital systems, outpatient medical clinics, and corporations, to further that goal.
I founded the Oncology program at Methodist Charlton hospital and took it to achieve National Accreditation. Working with United Health Care as well as OptumRx National Pharmacy & Therapeutic committee, I provide insight and decision-making for drug formularies – decisions that affect 65M+ lives.
I have played an active role with Drug Contracting within US Oncology/McKesson Specialty Health.“[Dr. Gandhi’s] insights, experience and commitment to evidence-based deliberation principles have been an enormous asset to us in our formulary evaluation of new and existing drug products (particularly oncologic agents)…”
Key to providing outstanding patient care is providing resources to healthcare stakeholders. To this end:
I co-founded an online and onsite ‘ecosystem’ (HealthEntrepreneur) that fosters innovation among physicians, technologists, hospitals, and investors.
I identify problems, create business plans, prepare pitches, and raise funds for several healthcare start-ups as a trusted medical advisor and board member.
Actively involved in the community, I am also frequently called upon to write for magazines and WebMD as well as TV talk-shows.
