SAINT JOHN - Todd Murphy isn't kidding when he says he wants his company to become the Google of health care. From his Prince William Street office, Murphy and his seven full-time staff want to change the way health care is delivered, one prescription at a time. MedRunner, as the company is called, has already started testing its web-based application with 10 local doctors and 20 pharmacies, and by the end of 2011, Murphy wants to go national. "I've a very intense and competitive guy," said Murphy, 34, a graduate of the University of New Brunswick's master's of business administration program. "I like a challenge, and obviously taking on the health-care system is a big challenge. But if I'm going to get up and do something, I want to do it right."
