Darla Brown

Board Chair

After a cancer diagnosis in 2010, Darla Brown shifted her career focus from entertainment and media startups to digital health entrepreneurship. In 2014, Darla co-founded Intake.me, a SaaS platform that allowed patients to manage all their health history across providers. Intake.me’s outreach programs included the Empowered Patient Chat series, which was acquired by Patient Empowerment Network, ePatient101.com, an online health academy focused on health literacy and patient empowerment, and Conseils Patients, which is a French version of ePatient101.com created in partnership with the Patient Empowerment Foundation in Lausanne, Switzerland.  As co-founder of the Healthcare Rights Coalition in November 2016, she is an advocate for affordable, equitable access to healthcare. Darla has over two decades experience in product and engineering leadership roles at web startups and software development companies such as Glossi, ThisNext.com, Comedy.com, The Jim Henson Company, The Discovery Channel, E*TRADE, ABC/Disney, and the Digital Entertainment Network. Today she is a product and technology consultant for digital healthcare and wellness companies.
