Jon Hernandez, Advisor
Jon Hernandez, a serial entrepreneur with a passion for solving some of the largest problems in healthcare, has co-founded and/or invested in 22 companies and supported the development of an additional 10+ organizations in the past two decades. Combined with strong strategic partnerships, these organizations offer a wealth of data, clinical optimization and resources needed to accomplish the optimal Quadruple Aim for our community. Jon’s dedication to economic development and business growth has led him to be on the advisory board for 2 separate organizations, Colorado Companies to Watch (CCTW) and ASI Capital, LLC. He has been proudly inducted into the Blackstone Entrepreneurial Network (BEN), and is now a BEN CEO Advisor where he plans to build on his commitment to support local companies. Jon is also a featured contributor to Dave Chase’s 2017 book, the CEO's Guide to Restoring the American Dream.
Getting his start in healthcare in the early 1990s, Jon co-built an early stage claims clearinghouse based out of Colorado Springs, Colorado. As a software developer and database architect, Jon co-developed some of the original data transfer standards in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). This company was sold to UnitedHealthcare in 2006. In more recent years, Jon began to recognize the need for change in healthcare which led him on a two-year hiatus where he shifted his focus to helping others bring innovation into the space; several of which are contributing to changing the healthcare landscape today. In 2014 Jon joined PeakMed and has since brought his mission to the forefront of this organization. In 2017 PeakMed received awards from Colorado Companies to Watch, Colorado Springs Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Companies, and recognized by top government officials as a viable healthcare delivery model for the future.
2018 marks the beginning of the next phase for Jon and his personal mission. Through a combination of new organizations and deepening partnerships, Jon is sharpening his focus on redesigning health and care at the next level for our communities. The relationships Jon has built over the last 25 years have morphed into a web of dedicated organizations and individuals focused on solving the demands of an industry on the brink of reform. Jon is humbled to be in the like of some of the best, most passionate people in industry.
