Founder and CEO, Zus Health

Jonathan J. Bush, Jr. is founder and CEO of Zus Health, a company focused on creating the  healthcare industry’s first shared development platform backed by a shared data record and  thereby empowering digital-first healthcare builders. Mr. Bush is also the Executive Chairman  of Firefly Health, a pioneer in real-time virtual primary care, and he sits on the boards of  SonderMind which provides virtual and in-person behavioral healthcare, and of Innovaccer  which is building a series of technology platform services for population health.

Mr. Bush is the co-founder and former CEO of athenahealth. Founded originally as an effort to  reform maternity care through collaborative medical practice, athenahealth pivoted to  internet-based information services in 2000 when it could not obtain the information it needed  from providers to build its business. Athenahealth now provides internet-based billing, medical  record and care management services to over twenty percent of the US healthcare market. 

Prior to founding athenahealth, Mr. Bush served as an EMT for the City of New Orleans, was  trained as a medic in the U.S. Army, and worked as a management consultant with Booz Allen &  Hamilton.
