We started PeraHealth to prevent another family from suffering from an avoidable death. But we also realized that we had discovered a way to actually view the physiology of disease progression and that this could be a tool to significantly accelerate medical research.

Michael Rothman, PhD

Co-founder and Chief Science Officer

Michael Rothman co-founded PeraHealth in 2005 with his brother Steven, following the avoidable death of their mother, Florence.

His career began at IBM’s General Technology Division, after he earned his PhD in quantum chemistry.

Watson Research Labs, in the AI department, engaged in research in machine learning.

Michael is a natural interpreter of information. As a manager and executive consultant for the IBM Consulting group, his duties included translating mathematical results into effective business strategies for major banks and financial institutions. Later, as Senior Vice President for Strategic Information at First USA Bank, Michael established a database to better determine customer preferences.

In 2000, he founded Michael Rothman & Associates to focus on data analysis and product development through consulting, patent filing, and joint ventures. Projects have included developing a system generating customized discharge forms for hospitals, helping determine cash flow and profitability for a pharmaceutical company’s newly introduced drugs, and pro bono work analyzing mortality data for a guide dog school.
