Paul has been CEO of MedTouch since April of 2007 and, prior to that, held the position of COO. As a co-founder, he has helped set the vision for the company from its inception. Paul is an active speaker in the healthcare marketing community. In addition to the dozen webinars MedTouch presents each year, Paul can be seen and heard giving lively talks around the country about helping healthcare organizations succeed online: from New England (NESHCo), to Tennessee (TSHPRM), Florida (FSHPRM), and Las Vegas (Annual Healthcare Internet Conference).
Prior to MedTouch, Paul managed online brand experiences for a variety of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. He has over 15 years of combined experience in online commerce, interactive marketing, experience design and content management solutions. Most notably, he directed the consumer-facing channel for the now defunct Send.com, an online gift delivery network that raised $45 million from such VC luminaries as Greylock, Highland Capital, Benchmark and Charles Rivers Ventures in the late 1990s.
Paul earned a Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Boston University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College.
When he’s not traveling across the country to visit clients or to speak at healthcare conferences, Paul runs a humanitarian non-profit with his wife. He’s thrilled to finally have a yard for his dogs and two boys, and often daydreams of spending a summer in Iceland.
With over 18 years in technology, strategy and project management – including 10 years specialized in the healthcare industry – Sandra Fancher brings a wealth of experience to MedTouch. Sandra is passionate about understanding clients and works closely with them to develop actionable plans that impact how healthcare is delivered.
Before joining MedTouch, Sandra served on the executive team and directed client services and operations for Geonetric, successfully sponsoring multi-phased, long-term projects for healthcare clients. While at MedTouch, Sandra has developed strategies for clients such as Rochester General Hospital, University Hospitals, Newton-Wellesley, Sterling Health Plans, St. Dominic’s and many more. Her strategic stewardship and vision has resulted in numerous awards for our clients.
Sandra holds a Bachelor of Science in Business and Marketing from Northwest Missouri State University and is a certified Project Management Professional.
She lives in Iowa with her husband and two children. Her school marching band uniform included wooden shoes and, last May, she helped set a Guinness World Record for the most people dancing in wooden shoes at the same time. Her secret weakness is her sense of direction – Sandra admits to using a GPS to get to the hair stylist. (This might explain why she was the first proponent of hospital GPS wayfinding at MedTouch.)
Jonathan brings a fascinating variety of experience to MedTouch, from working in the laboratories of St. Francis Hospital to teaching linear algebra at Harvard. His diverse background enables him to understand and effectively respond to multi-faceted challenges. As our operations chief, one of Jonathan’s most important responsibilities is to ensure your project runs on time and without undesirable surprises. He is only satisfied when you are satisfied.
Jonathan graduated magna cum laude in Biomedical Engineering from Harvard College and earned a Masters of Business Administration from Northeastern University. He is one of many in-house geniuses at MedTouch, though he would never admit it.
Jonathan was born in the same small city in upstate New York on the same day (a few years later) as our beloved leader, Paul. When daydreaming at his desk, Jonathan secretly entertains the idea of entering eating competitions. His first childhood memory: at the Museum of National History in New York City, he enthusiastically exclaimed, “Dessert!” upon entering the desert section of the museum. Ever the bright star, his parents did not even know he could read at the time!

An avid geek for the Bard, Angie just directed a semi-modernized production of Henry V, where actors wielded both broadswords and smart phones on the field of battle.
