Healthcare Technology Start-Up Locates in Petaluma

WellFX, a healthcare technology start-up that provides the industry’s only safe, private and secure cloud-based social platform designed specifically for healthcare providers, has established its headquarters in Petaluma, California. All sales, marketing, R&D and customer support functions will be housed in this new facility which has capacity for approximately 75 employees.

Jock Putney, WellFX president and chief executive officer said “Petaluma is an ideal location with a rich and skilled work-force and easy access to San Francisco and San Jose. Commercial real-estate is affordable which is vital for a start-up. What can be better than having all the resources plus a lower cost of living than Silicon Valley? – it’s good for us, it’s good for our employees and it’s good for our customers.”

WellFX was founded in July of 2011 by Jock Putney, and Jeff Thompson both healthcare information technology veterans to respond to the unmet need for safe, secure social network platforms that address specific requirements of healthcare providers. It is a known fact that better communication between patients and healthcare providers where a patient can get more involved in their own healthcare has beneficial effects on the wellbeing of the patient as well as reducing costs for the provider. WellFX provides the platform to engage, educate and activate patients in their own healthcare, with a potentially profound impact on patient and provider outcomes.

The company is actively hiring sales, marketing and customer support professionals. For more information contact
