David Van Sickle, CEO of Propeller Health

Joining me in our virtual studio is David Van Sickle, co-founder and CEO of Propeller Health. Propeller is a leading digital health company dedicated to the management of chronic respiratory disease. David founded Propeller Health in 2010 but he initially started his work in 2006 while at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.  

David was one of the very early pioneers who spotted the ability to apply technology to medications to capture data that gives insights into both personal and population health. He and the team at propeller health worked tirelessly over the years to develop the technology, business models, regulatory approvals and evidence to drive adoption of their product.  

Now, 14 years on, and this early digital health company is seeing a groundswell of interest as their products are used by some of the people who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. I wanted to know how their strong foundation and company mission supported their growth and evolution, and how, with their successful track record, they are supporting their users and communities to help them stay well and healthy. I was also interested to see if they’ve observed any changes in behavior by their users in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
