Vice President Technology, Telepsychiatry
Danish Munir joined Genoa Healthcare in 2015. Danish is responsible for driving the strategy and execution for the Telepsychiatry Business Unit’s Product, Engineering & Marketing teams and positioning Telepsychiatry to become a larger player in the Behavioral health industry and within Genoa.
Previously, Danish was Co-Founder and CTO of 1DocWay, a New York City-based startup that used telepsychiatry to expand access to mental healthcare in underserved areas and to give behavioral health providers more control over their careers. Danish and his team built the technology-enabled-services company from scratch, treating 25,000 patients before being acquired by Genoa in November of 2015.
Prior to 1DocWay, Danish worked at Microsoft, on a transformational team that was charged with using data science and analytics to secure Microsoft’s customers and to improve Microsoft’s products by enhancing their resilience to digital threats. The team was one of the key investments by Microsoft that brought them out of the era of being dogged by security concerns. Danish led the anti-phishing and parental-control analytics areas of the business.
Prior to Genoa, Danish has over a period of 7 years consulted with a number of early stage startups in the healthcare, health-data and consumer space including Leo Health (pediatric full stack startup) among others to help them refine and develop and execute on product strategy. Danish also co-founded ComstarUSA, a software development house that enabled US startups to leverage off-shore engineers in an easy and affordable way.
Danish received dual-degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, including a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Computer Engineering. Danish grew up in Karachi, Pakistan and is an avid hiker.
