o powerhouse women engineers came together to form a company that is changing how we get our healthcare. Christine Carrillo and Helen Lee saw huge flaws in how Americans were buying and using health insurance so they created JOANY .

JOANY is a free and unbiased online resource where consumers from all 50 states can easily research, purchase and manage health insurance plans. JOANY asks customers to fill out a simple questionnaire to gather basic information on things like how often they go to the doctor and what medications they’re prescribed, and then uses machine learning combined with a proprietary dataset of health plan attributes to instantly generate a tailored recommendation for each customer. It currently saves customers an average of $4,000 per year. www.joany.com
