Dan Herbstman is the CEO and Co-founder of Third Eye Health. He wore his first pair of Google Glass last December and quickly saw its potential, with the right software, to help transform various areas of health care by extending the reach of physicians, to provide better care and avoid unnecessary, costly services. He has not looked back since (mostly because there is no LCD screen on the back of Glass). Dan entered the Google Glass Explorer program, began developing applications and quickly realized he needed a Chief Technology Officer and a great team to take the company to the next level. Third Eye Health has now formed an experienced team and is actively marketing its first product.
Previous to his epiphany, Dan was Senior Director, Diagnostics, at Haemonetics, the leading medical technology company in blood management, with nearly $1 billion in revenue. He was at Haemonetics for almost nine years, during which time he led teams to bring early stage products from concept through to commercialization and to standard of care in the in-vitro diagnostics, software and medical device areas, including leading a product from less than $10 m to ~$45m in revenue.
Previous to Third Eye Health joining Healthbox, Dan served as a mentor to Healthbox companies and to other early stage companies as part of Chicago Innovation Mentors (CIM) and the Chicago Lean Startup Challenge. In addition, he was an early investor and advisor to b.good, a New England-based chain of healthy fast food restaurants. Dan started his career in health care consulting with Abt Associates and Perot Systems before moving into the medical technology area with EPIX Pharmaceuticals. He has an undergraduate degree from Washington University (St. Louis, MO) in Biology.
