Spending the last 25 years in the healthcare industry, Jon O’Sullivan has played a pivotal role in creating revolutionary initiatives that serve as important segues in offering alternative healthcare options. In 1995, O’Sullivan founded VMG Health, a valuation and transaction advisory firm and in 1998 became the founder of Practice Performance Inc., a revenue management outsourcing firm. Selling both companies, he later established VMG Holdings, Practice Performance Inc. and OrthoEconomics. Having accumulated a myriad of experience from his work with hospital systems, physician organizations and as the founder of several companies, O’Sullivan’s newest platform, PediaQ is the culmination of years of comprehensive research and work.

His newest concept targets and capitalizes on today’s tech savvy generation of parents that at a moments notice are able to get nearly any service they desire, on-demand. Everyone uses apps, from buying groceries to ordering concert tickets and O’Sullivan felt why should healthcare be any different. Convenience would become his newest commodity and strategy in bringing  “concierge” medical care  to parents with sick children.

Taking into consideration the increasing roles of nurse practitioners within the health industry’s future, O’Sullivan devised a powerful alternative to current urgent care options. PediaQ is a visionary platform that offers on-demand urgent care solutions to parents who need dependable, high quality and convenient alternatives when their pediatricians are unavailable. By employing nurse practitioners with an expertise in pediatrics, patients are provided with more one-on-one time than they would have with a physician and are able to develop a carefully reviewed and thorough treatment plan.

PediaQ’s convenient app means no more visits to a busy ER waiting room, all services are provided in the comfort of the patient’s home and although the treatment is not covered by insurance, the prices are very competitive with other urgent care alternatives. As an added bonus the nurse practitioners are available 7 days a week and treat a variety of medical conditions.

Launching over a year ago in Dallas, Houston and Austin, PediaQ has already become a favorite among parents and with a value that goes way beyond convenience is becoming a “game changer” in the pediatric healthcare industry.
