Mason Rothert & Nicholas Magers conceived Mediprocity while working together in the healthcare field calling on physician offices and healthcare provider centers. At the time, Mason Rothert was working as V.P. of Sales and Technology for a management company overseeing long-term care facilities and a full range therapy company. Nicholas Magers was finishing up his MBA at USC and working for a pulmonary company as a sales director.
