How It Began
TimelyMD was co-founded by Luke Hejl, Chris Clark and Alan Dennington, M.D., in 2017. Luke and Alan grew up in Austin, Texas, and shared many of life’s earliest memories together, including Boy Scouts, church activities and family camping trips. During their freshman year at Abilene Christian University, they met Chris—their first-year class president—and the three have been friends ever since.
What began as a dinner conversation between Luke and Chris about starting a business then snowballed into a yearlong adventure bringing researching telehealth, specifically in higher education. The idea of directly connecting students to healthcare professionals was born after speaking with students and parents about the current physical and mental needs of college students.
As results-focused leaders and longtime friends, Luke, Chris and Alan bring their entrepreneurial passions and their experiences at the intersection of business, technology and healthcare to all aspects of life and work at TimelyMD.
