Mr. Chackerian attended Florida State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing in 1991.

With over 25 years Ara Chackerian of experience in the healthcare field he has built companies such as TMS Health Solutions, BMC Diagnostics, PipelineRx, and Embion/Provider Links. How TMS Health Solutions came to be when they decided to built a network of diagnostic radiology centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. They found new ways to treat depression with transcranial magnetic stimulation. A lot of research and energy has gone into creating this company that helps people. Digital healthcare is a trend that Ara thinks is going to be huge soon. One amazing piece of technology will be able to detect depression. People who suffer from depression are known to change their behavior and speech patterns. This technology can help patients get help by recognizing what stage they are at. This is going to be revolutionary. One of the best investments Ara made recently was on his daughter. When Mr. Chackerian and his family lived in Nicaragua he helped subsidize his 15 years old daughter’s paycheck. It was her first job and was paid only $1 dollar an hour. It felt good for him to contribute to his daughters hard work. Check out tmshealthsolutions.com
