Bert Brodsky is a leading entrepreneur and an active philanthropist and member of the community. Mr. Brodsky founded Mobile Health in 1984.

Mr. Brodsky’s entrepreneurship was evident as far back as 1970. At that time, he founded his first company, Medical Arts Office Services, Inc., a bookkeeping service for hospital-based physicians. Just three years later, under his direction, the Company became the first to offer computer-automated billing and management services for this market. His innovative leadership was further evidenced when he developed the first program for hospital based physicians to submit claims electronically to Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare and Medicaid. This business became the forerunner of what is today known as Sandata Technologies, Inc., one of the nation’s premier providers of advanced computer, telephony and internet-based technologies for the healthcare industry. Mr. Brodsky is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sandata Technologies, Inc., the largest processor of home care claims in the United States. Mr. Brodsky’s professional career includes his role as President of the Health Division of Itel Corporation, a claims processing company serving over 12,000 hospitals and physicians in seven states. His strong performance at Itel earned him the Company’s 1978 “Outstanding Executive Award.”

In 1981, Mr. Brodsky founded National Medical Health Card Systems, Inc. (NMHC), a national leader in pharmacy benefit management services to both the consumer and business markets, now known as NMHCRX. In 1999, NMHCRX successfully completed an initial public offering. Mr. Brodsky served as Chairman of NMHCRX until March 2003.

Mr. Brodsky’s other business holdings include Brookhaven Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Inc. (BMRI), a magnetic resonance imaging facility; a real estate portfolio consisting of 300 apartments in the New York-Metropolitan areas and one million square feet of commercial space on Long Island and in Long Island City; two successful restaurants, The Island Mermaid on Fire Island and City Cellar in Westbury; and Didit.com, the largest independent search marketing agency in the United States, of which he is the Managing Partner. Mr. Brodsky is also one of the founding partners of Health Edge Investment Partners, a private equity firm founded in 2005 that focuses exclusively on the healthcare industry and sits on the Advisory Board and the Investment Committee of the fund.
