Esther Go is the President and CEO of MediLink Network, Inc., a health technology company that enables efficient, accessible and affordable health care.

The company mediates trusted transactions within the health care ecosystem that consists of patients, health care providers and insurers with their innovative technology services.

As a child, Esther spent time at her family’s business (Equitable Computer Services) learning to code and assemble hardware to earn her allowance. Later, when she returned to the Philippines after studying and working overseas, she gladly took on the challenge of growing MediLink Network, an opportunity that synthesized her passion for health care and technology. Esther believes that improving the health care experience and making it affordable by leveraging technology is a meaningful quest.

Esther holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Computer Science and Economics from Smith College. During college, she found a niche in tutoring fellow students in Computer Science. While trying to find her passion, she worked in different roles in various countries and sectors, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), consulting, health care and banking. She won the 2019 Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines Woman Entrepreneur Award.   

“By leveraging technology, we aim to provide efficient, accessible and affordable health care in the communities we serve by mediating trusted transactions in the health care ecosystem that consists of patients, health care providers and insurers,” Esther said. “We also aim to remove the fraud and inefficiencies in the health care system.”
