Lauren Hanson, MS

flipMD from GoodRx
Founder and Head of Product
Lauren is an entrepreneur by heart having started her first side hustle at the age of eleven. Now, she is the CEO and co-founder of flipMD by GoodRx, the physician-only consulting services platform offering non-clinical medical expertise to industry partners. Lauren and her husband Greg launched flipMD at the start of the pandemic while Greg was completing his residency to address the challenges they saw with physician staffing first-hand, with the company being acquired by GoodRx in early 2022. Lauren also serves as the Head of Product for flipMD under the GoodRx brand.

Prior to pursuing the flipMD venture, Lauren worked in publishing for more than ten years, getting her start at a publishing house in Vietnam. After her stint in Asia, Lauren landed a job in New York City at HarperCollins Publishers and also held roles at Kaplan Test Prep and Barnes and Noble Education. In all of her positions, Lauren deployed technology to improve efficiencies, create better products, and speed go-to-market strategies. She earned her BA in comparative literature after only three years from Indiana University, and also received her MS in management information systems from NYU. Lauren is based in Philadelphia, PA with her husband Greg and two daughters.
