Mano and Barry have over 20 years experience each of working as clinicians in UK NHS teaching hospitals. They have a passion for healthcare innovation and have both gained recognition for their clinical and service achievements, giving them a deep understanding of how healthcare systems work in both the NHS and private sector. They are driven by a desire to make high quality healthcare more transparent and accessible to patients. They are particularly proud of the fact that the NHS has invested directly into Medstars, in reflection of its ethical stance and potentially groundbreaking work in using technology to understand patient health navigation pathways.

They both continue to work in clinical practice.
