In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- Roles physicians can play in digital health companies
- How to translate a physician’s clinical experience into industry settings
- Where physicians can have a voice early on within companies
- How to represent the voice of the clinician in product design and evidence generation

Danish Nagda, MD, MBA
Founder & CEO at Rezilient Health
Danish Nagda is a surgeon, serial entrepreneur, and a caregiver for his father. He serves as the founder and CEO of Rezilient, a virtual-first care delivery platform that bridges the convenience of telehealth with the scope of in-person care. In partnership with large retailers, Rezilient is building neighborhood hubs where there are no waiting rooms and where every physician is available at every location. He built Rezilient to redistribute points of care from the traditional doctor’s office to clinical access points in the community.
As a caregiver, Danish spent countless hours traveling to and waiting in doctor’s offices with his father. As a doctor, he recognized that telehealth could help mitigate these issues, but found it to be limiting, especially when it came to his ability to examine patients remotely. Having previously founded Schoology (later acquired by Powerschool), Danish understood the transformational power of technology, and was determined to solve the distribution problem in healthcare.
