Chief Innovation Officer and Co-founder
Sumit Nagpal is a Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Lumira Ltd. Lumira represents the fourth generation of Sumit’s work, which began while working with Steve Jobs and NeXT, Inc. in the early 1990s. That experience led him to combine his two passions at the time – information technology and medicine – to begin a lifelong journey to help physicians better care for their patients. In the mid 1990s, Sumit led his first company, Wellogic, to create one of the country’s first longitudinal medical records across major departmental systems in a best-of-breed hospital in Boston.
Today, after twenty years of practice and honing of the product, Sumit has taken his vision private once again, with the strength and backing of a trio of industry leaders, himself included, and is now helping drive practical interoperability and standards adoption in markets well beyond the United States, and remains a passionate advocate for improving clinical and financial outcomes and encouraging healthy behaviors via ubiquitous, easy to use access to information.
