Gilbert Leistner founded Master Medical Network® because he thought it should be easier for healthcare professionals to communicate and to deliver healthcare services to their patients.

Mr. Leistner began developing solutions for healthcare industry problems in the late 1970′s, when he worked with Riverside Hospital in New Jersey to design one of the first three Hospice programs funded by US National Institutes of Health, continued through the 1980’s and 1990’s with support for development of telemedicine technology, and, most recently, through his creation of algorithms and business models for the software behind the MasterMedical™ healthcare delivery system.

Mr. Leistner is a member of the American Telemedicine Association where he has served as a peer reviewer for the 2015 and 2016 ATA annual meetings.  He has co-presented continuing medical education courses on the business of telemedicine at the 2013 and 2014 ATA annual meetings and is active in various ATA Special Interest Groups.

Mr. Leistner worked for over 30 years on Wall Street and La Salle Street as a member of the American Stock Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. At the CBOT and CME, he served on numerous oversight and management committees, including Strategic Planning, Market Development, and Product Development, and as Chairman of the Special Task Force to the Executive Committee (CBOT), which was responsible for developing strategy for the exchange’s early effort to centralize processing and clearing transactions in the OTC derivatives market.

Mr. Leistner served on the advisory board of the International Association of Financial Engineers at its founding and has been a director of the Chicago Board of Trade Educational Research Foundation and of Reef Check, a worldwide coral reef conservation organization.
