“I think you are disruptive and I think you are the future” -Pat Salber
On Tuesday, January 7th, we started our day at CES 2014 running around from interview to interview. You can’t imagine just how exhausted we were running from one location to the next; if you can, you know just how insane it was to run from the Las Vegas Hotel to the Las Vegas Convention Center’s North Hall to the South Hall’s Press Room and then to South Hall 2. And to top it all off, the numbering system of the booths were not all that obvious and clear. But despite all these complications, we filmed one of our most interesting interviews with Randy Parker, CEO of MDLive, an on-demand telehealth company that provides patients with remote access via video, phone, and secure email to board certified doctors and licensed therapists.
We arrived at Booth 26325 in the LVCC South Hall 2 and met with Randy after passing him a couple of times trying to find him. But when we did locate him, we immediately started setting up for the interview. As Gregg Masters and Helena Nguyen were setting up the equipment, Dr. Pat Salber began prepping Randy for the interview.

Watch and listen to what Randy and his company, MDLive, are aiming to do in healthcare. Tell us if you agree with Dr. Salber’s statement to Randy: “I think you are disruptive and I think you are the future…” We’d absolutely love to hear your opinion for we love what MDLive is doing and can’t wait to see how this will shake our healthcare system today.
