Radiologist, Serial Digital Health Entrepreneur & Founder | Jinga Life
Dr Johnny Walker is an Australian-trained Interventional Radiologist & an International serial Digital Health Entrepreneur.
Using very simple off the shelf technology Johnny led a small Team in 1995 to provide an obstetric mobile Ultrasound service, out the back of a truck, scanning pregnant Aboriginal Women in remote communities in outback Australia.
With the advent of the internet this modest practice rapidly evolved into Global Diagnostics, an international Teleradiology enterprise sending digital images around the clock from around the world to a “virtual team” of Radiologists for immediate analysis & reporting.
Johnny successfully exited Global Diagnostics with 350 staff around the world and Group revenues of over €38M.
Johnny has since founded Jinga Life (www.jinga.life) a digital health enterprise aimed at empowering the true Captain of Care in The Family. “In our experience this is more often than not a Female…usually the Mum but more frequently now the millennial daughter. We call her “Jinga” after the great African Warrior Queen Jinga, the great protector of her People.
We are living in an “on demand” mobile digital economy and healthcare is about to be disrupted.
Our solution enables The Jinga to have access & visibility of her Family’s Healthcare records, medications, allergies, Xrays & MRI Scans, blood tests etc from the palm of her hand with real time links to the GP and Hospital Care Teams via wearable sensors, virtual consultations & e-Prescriptions anywhere anytime.”
