Saul Kornik has a varied background ranging from healthcare to technology to finance to machine learning to culture change. He is Co-Founder and CEO of Healthforce, an augmentation of technology and doctors that turns nurse-led clinics into effective and specialist health centers. Healthforce is a web application that enables real-time video connections between patients and nurses (or other primary care workers) with higher-level clinical skills (doctors) for the delivery of multi-disciplinary team-based care. The technology reduces care costs, increases care access, and monitors clinical and patient-centric care quality in real-time. Healthforce-supported nurses have run over 1 million consultations and have completed over 80,000 telemedicine consultations with remote doctors.
Prior to Healthforce, in 2006, Saul co-founded Africa Health Placements (AHP), an organization that works to get doctors to where they are needed most and to make them effective when they are there (through improving their clinical skills, their ability to fix systems and their resilience working in tough conditions). During his time, AHP placed over 4,200 doctors who served over 34 million people, mostly in rural Africa in public service. He served as CEO of AHP until the end of 2017 and served as chairman of the organisation until 2020.
