Jason Pratt is President, Co-Founder and the Structural Architect of United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network, Inc. What he brings to the table for UME is an amazing 25+ years of multi-faceted business background and real-world experience. Jason has successfully built, developed and sold multiple corporations from the ground up. He is currently President of three additional corporations which he founded. You might call him an insatiable American entrepreneur.
While serving as Regional Director for a Home Health Care company, Jason saw the need for a reliable Senior Referral Source – one providing affordable, targeted solutions for seniors and their families. Serving in this role in Home Health afforded him the opportunity to work directly and closely with seniors, nurses and staff at facilities where seniors’ individual needs were assessed. Jason spent months visiting dozens of senior family homes — plus Hospice, Assisted Living and Independent Living facilities – along with staff nurses and rehabilitation therapists. This unique experience deeply affected Jason personally.
UME was developed based directly on this experience. Jason brought the idea for UME’s ground-breaking Medication Management App to the forefront. Along with UME Co-Founder and long-time healthcare professional, Lesley Hauck, this handy mobile application was carefully and thoughtfully designed as a “go-to” tool for the management and care of seniors and others individualized healthcare needs. The patient mismanagement and the medication errors and abuse witnessed were real. And, therefore a real solution was demanded!
The Medication Management App is a trusted referral resource. The elements incorporated into the app are based on the actual witnessing of improper senior placement at care facilities, in some cases in direct contradiction to their actual conditions and individual requirements. When Home Health Care companies and other facilities focus more on their census rather than good care, our seniors and their families are the losers. This is simply wrong. Helping to change this paradigm was the guiding principal upon which UME was built.
Jason is a tremendous supporter of veterans and seniors, and in that regard, UME is partnered with Changing Course Foundation and its Founder and CEO, Dr. Cathi Neal. CCF provides critical mental health resources to veterans and others, regardless of their ability to pay.
Jason also believes in second chances and has been a major supporter of the Unlocking Doors Reentry Program. This non-profit organization focuses on helping provide excellent employment opportunities and training for people who deserve a second chance — a fresh start in life.

In addition, Brian worked to drive Home Entertainment sales for over 45 film releases at various retail accounts.
In 2011, he moved to 20th Century Fox where he drove retail marketing efforts for Walmart and Target by developing in-store marketing programs, .com executions, and digital platform overlays.

Ben comes to UME as a top Medical Equipment and PPE Account Manager after running his own successful business in California for over twenty years. Ben initially expressed his entrepreneurial spirit in a big way by founding and running his own exclusive entertainment industry catering service in Los Angeles serving such Hollywood clients as The Voice, American Idol, You’ve Got Talent and many more TV and feature film productions.
When events recently shut down in Hollywood due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Ben was determined to do his part to help others acquire the PPE and other medical supplies they so desperately need. This new direction for his career was a natural transition from his service-oriented, upscale catering company. It was another valid way for him to serve his fellow man and provide the very personal hands-on customer service he is known for in the industry today.
