MappyHealth.com was developed in response to the NowTrending2012 application challenge. The team came together with a common mission to build an application that would positively impact public health surveillance. The MappyHealth team shares a common goal of furthering innovation and research that will enhance population health awareness of disease and illness trends.
MappyHealth.com was born from social collaboration when co-founders Mark Silverberg and Brian Norris connected over a single tweet. The team grew by one when co-founder Charles Boicey joined brining a diverse background in research, informatics and product development. Our team brings a wealth of experience, within many of healthcare’s diverse and challenging environments. Development of MappyHealth.com began in April 2012.
