Nirish founded DocPanel to improve access to expert radiologists in subspecialty niches for patients and imaging providers alike. Adding to over two decades of entrepreneurial passion, DocPanel is the result of Nirish’s personal mission to create better health care options for those who need them. His expertise in strategic planning, advising, and operations has enabled him to build a successful, sustainable business poised for steady and rapid growth.
In 2000, Nirish earned his Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and Finance at Saint Joseph’s College of Commerce. One year after receiving his degree, Nirish founded his first company, Technology Holdings, where he worked as the Managing Director. The company is a cross-border Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and Private Equity advisory group focused exclusively on outsourcing vendors. Technology Holdings has a proven track record of advising industry leaders in the outsourcing vertical.
Inspired by his success in his early entrepreneurship, Nirish soon started his second company, Trouver. At Trouver, he worked as a Strategy Consultant specializing in Healthcare Technology with a strong focus on M&A, Strategic Account Management, and New Product Development. Nirish’s passion for medicine eventually led him to take a position as Head of Medicare at Wipro in 2015. At Wipro, he served 100 health plans, including 7 of the top 10 Medicare advantage plans in the U.S. and 15 Blues plans providing SaaS-based enrollment, member management, and risk solutions. Some of his key accomplishments included: delivering 75% year-over-year revenue growth, improving customer satisfaction, and launching new products. Nirish’s relentless dedication to excellence motivated him to become a member of the Board of Advisors at Park Health in 2016.
Applying all he’s learned since launching his first company, Nirish continues to invest his time and energy into creating a future where better health outcomes are the rule and not the exception. He is confident that DocPanel will transform the healthcare landscape by improving access to quality, radiological reads.
