Dr. Jonathan Rogg Wins Houston Business Journal’s Top 40 under 40 Award for 2022

In May 2022, UTHealth-Houston Department of Emergency Medicine’s Dr. Jonathan Rogg was selected as Houston Business Journal’s Top 40 under 40 Award for 2022.  This award is given each year to professionals under 40 who have had a significant impact in their respective organizations and the larger Houston community.

 

Dr. Rogg has continually strived to make healthcare equitable for all in Houston and been an advocate in fighting the current disparities that exist.  Dr. Rogg was instrumental in the creation of a novel Telemedicine program as a part of the Harris Health System here in Houston.  In the first year, this program provided on-demand telemedicine for thousands of Harris Health patients with urgent medical concerns and kept 75% of them out of the emergency department. He has presented on this innovative program both locally and nationally. Additionally, his work with telemedicine for indigent populations resulted in an article published in the prestigious Harvard Business Review in October of this past year.

 

“I am honored to be recognized with this award, bringing to light that physicians can be leaders both clinically and more broadly in the healthcare community,” stated Dr. Rogg.  “Many in our community face challenges to obtain high-quality healthcare due to a myriad of issues. Developing novel and innovative ways to reach indigent populations is key to improving the health of our community.”

 

Dr. Rogg will be recognized in Houston Business Journal’s special publication in the June 17th issue of the Houston Business Journal print and digital editions.

We are all so proud of you!
