Hi, we're Veda (pronounced like "data").
We create a simplified and streamlined healthcare experience for everyone, from the patient, to the payer, to the provider.
Veda was founded by Meghan Gaffney, a political entrepreneur and Bob Linder, an astronomer. Meghan saw possibilities in Bob’s intelligence and how it could impact human lives. Bob realized the infinite ways in which data could be used to solve people’s common and not-so-common problems. Together, they set their sights on healthcare.
Meet our team. Veda is fundamentally changing what a venture-backed company looks like. We assembled a diverse team with unique backgrounds to solve the complex and manual data problems facing the healthcare industry and create first-of-its-kind Smart Automation. Together, Veda is fixing Earth’s data problems from the inside out.
Overall, the work is engaging, different every day, and the work environment is welcoming, collaborative, and inclusive.Katie Titus, Customer Support Specialist

Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer
Dr. Bob Lindner empowers and guides veda’s scientific and engineering teams.
He provides strategic vision, builds innovative core data science technologies and connects our veda scientists to our Scientific Advisory Board.
Bob fell hard for data science, and has a passion for solving big problems, not just in the Universe, but those affecting our everyday lives here on earth. With over ten years’ experience, he is a published and acclaimed astrophysicist with experience modeling data, and designing and building cloud-based machine learning systems. Bob had a number of impressive and significant discoveries and “first detections” in his years researching and studying.
Most notably, he created machine learning code that automates and accelerates the ability for scientists to analyze data from next generation telescopes. That program, Gausspy, continues to increase scientists’ understandings of our galaxy’s origins. He earned his Ph.D. in physics from Rutgers University and was a postdoctoral researcher at UW-Madison, where he led the development of Gausspy. Bob is a contributing member of Forbes Technology Council.
