Kimber Lockhart was on the technology fast-track even before graduating from Stanford University in 2008. During her junior year of undergrad, she founded Increo Solutions, a cloud storage and document sharing startup. Under Kimber’s leadership, Increo received seed investment from Venture Firm DFJ was acquired by cloud content management service Box in 2009.
After successfully building and selling her first company, Kimber signed on as an engineer with Box, where she went on to become the company’s Senior Director of Web Application Engineering. She hired and scaled the web application engineering team and was ultimately responsible for the team building most user-facing features on Box. By the time she left Box in 2014, Kimber had helped the company grow exponentially.
Drawing on her experience, Kimber speaks frequently about technology, health care, and engineering career growth for women.
Today, Kimber is the Chief Technology Officer of One Medical Group, a pioneering primary care practice, backed by Google Ventures. One Medical is a rapidly growing health care model, integrating innovative design with cutting-edge technology to provide higher quality service at lower cost. Kimber and her team create technology that makes seeing your doctor as easy as making a dinner reservation. With same-day appointment booking and telemedicine services, One Medical delivers health care designed around patients’ needs.
The company recently announced several updates to its telemedicine app:
• The Digital Dermatology feature allows patients to evaluate conditions remotely, without the need for an office visit in many cases
• The Treat Me Now feature Answers basic health questions based on symptoms and provides online triage from experienced staff for common health issues such as UTIs, yeast infections, and seasonal allergies.
• The app enables members to schedule same-day appointments, and request prescription renewals.
• The revolutionary app also includes a Vaccine Tracker feature allowing members to quickly and easily access their vaccine history from their phone.
“Broadly, mobile technology has enabled people to begin to take greater control of their own health,” Kimber told eWEEK. “Specifically, this means patients can gather biometric information via digital health apps, including exercise, food, and activity tracking, and then display this data in some interesting way.”
As Kimber noted, telemedicine apps can provide unprecedented access to quality health care at the time the patient needs it, where the patient needs it.
Kimber’s contributions in the engineering space haven’t gone unnoticed. She was recently recognized as one of Business Insider’s’ “25 Most Powerful Women Engineers in Technology” and one of SELF Magazine’s, “SELF-Made Women Who Inspire.” She is Chairman of the Board for the San Francisco Circus Center and is also an amateur circus artist.
