CEO, eHealth Technologies
Years in current role: 1.5
What are the biggest challenges you see in your industry currently?
The biggest industry challenges we are seeing revolve around the amount of time it takes clinician teams to collect medical records, images, and pathology labs. With quick and easy access to their patients’ comprehensive medical histories, clinicians are able to understand and create effective care plans to have more meaningful first appointments. Health care facilities experience complications as they hunt and sort through patient data that is scattered across multiple facilities — collecting this information could take them days or even weeks. It’s especially awful for patients to experience the never-ending burden of gathering their own data to secure effective treatment quickly.
What are you most excited about in terms of health care in Rochester in the near future?
In Rochester, we are seeing incredible advancements in life-saving medicines, devices, treatments, and procedures. At eHealth Technologies, we are most excited about the opportunity to continue streamlining and innovating the administration process for even more health care facilities both in Rochester and beyond. Through continuous innovation of our technology, we plan on creating new ways to help decrease time to treatment. Patients in critical need will get the right treatment plan and get on the road to recovery as soon as possible.
What do you think are the biggest health care needs in Rochester?
We’ve been witnessing a universal need for people to have access to the resources required to take better care of themselves and their health. This is a growing need in Rochester and many parts of the U.S. One of the biggest barriers that people face is lack of access to their complete medical, image and pathology history, resulting in unnecessary duplicate testing and long wait times for lifechanging appointments. Our advanced technology and compassionate team is streamlining the medical information retrieval process for 100+ health care facilities in the U.S., addressing these barriers so that patients can have meaningful first visits and get on the road to recovery faster.
