Tim Peck, MD
Cofounder & CEO
Dr. Timothy C. Peck, Cofounder and CEO of Call9, earned his MD from NYU. After medical school, he cofounded his first digital health startup – a medical information search engine for physicians. During his time there, this search engine was used in 17 of the top 50 hospitals in the nation. Call9 is his second startup. Prior to cofounding Call9, Peck held a faculty position at Harvard Medical School and was the Chief Resident in the Emergency Department at Beth Israel Deaconess/Harvard.
While at Beth Israel, Peck repeatedly encountered the challenge of treating patients who would have had superior outcomes had he and his team been able to treat them earlier. After investigating this problem, Peck learned that 1) despite making up only 0.5% of the population, Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF or nursing home) patients make up nearly 20% of ambulance transfers to the ED, and 2) the average time it takes for a SNF patient to see an Emergency Physician is 60 minutes+. After learning the scope of the problem, Peck set out to solve it by cofounding Call9.
Peck, having personally experienced critical illness himself, has an intimate knowledge of medicine as a patient and a provider. Having led a team of 39 talented residents through a year that included the Boston Marathon Bombings, Peck is uniquely attuned to the rigors of leadership. Peck is now putting his experience to work to improve & save patients’ lives on a massive scale.
