In the late 1980’s Michael McEntee imagined a healthcare system focused on prevention and education. With a long term focus on the metabolic issues related to obesity and chronic disease he has continued to develop strategies and technology designed to increase accessibility to programs and services that are designed to improve health and well-being. Today, with 40 years of clinical laboratory experience, Michael continues to re-imagine medical consumerism through point-of-care-testing. As a healthcare innovator, Michael works with the eTrueNorth team to introduce creative disruption in the delivery of healthcare services with a focus on improving access and lowering cost.
eTrueNorth is expanding healthcare delivery by creating a network of CLIA waived laboratories in retail pharmacies. The objective is to empower local pharmacists to administer preventive screenings, engage in medication management and close clinical gaps in care. Michael believes that partnerships with retail pharmacies, self-funded employers, third party payors and pharmaceutical manufacturers can improve the collective ability to identify undiagnosed diseases and better manage chronic conditions.
Michael McEntee is passionate about collaboration that is focused on fitting healthcare into everyday life and expanding the scope of services provided to medical consumers. The goal is a more effective, higher quality, multi-disciplinary healthcare delivery model which combines the flexibility of point-of-care testing with the opportunity for immediate dialogue with the patient/employee/consumer. This vision includes not only the United States but also international efforts, meeting the unique healthcare needs of each region.
