My primary professional interest is the convergence of medicine, technology, and business. For me, health care information technology is the nexus of these diverse interests. My professional objectives are to design, develop, and distribute health care technologies that increase access, enhance efficiency, and improve quality of care. However, technology is only the enabler of the wider reform movement that must take place in order to revolutionize the health care industry. My personal blog is an ongoing conversation which focuses on the enabling technologies that transform the delivery, financing, and outcomes of high performance health systems.
Currently, I am founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Board Member of Crossover Health. We provide a Connected System of Health — powered by a digital-first, national medical group for self-insured employers. By combining onsite, nearsite, and virtual health centers delivering personalized care from a dedicated, collaborative care team and a curated network of specialist providers, Crossover is able to connect every employee – in headquarters or in remote locations – to remarkable care while simultaneously helping companies take control of their healthcare spending. Powering this outcomes-focused model is a sophisticated enterprise data warehouse, which aggregates a vast array of permissioned health data, and a suite of analytics to identify high-risk and high-cost employees. Dedicated care teams are able to engage members directly through our proprietary software, better managing their conditions, and preventing costly complications. Headquartered in San Clemente, California, Crossover Health serves hundreds of thousands of employees and dependents of some of the nation’s largest companies across the country.
Previously, I was co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Medsphere Systems Corporation. Medsphere remains a leading commercial provider of open source technology for the healthcare industry. The company is revolutionizing healthcare by delivering commercially supported open source software based on the proven VistA electronic health record developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Under the brand name of OpenVista®, Medsphere offers a portfolio of products and professional services for hospitals, clinics and integrated delivery networks. During my tenure at Medsphere, I was primarily responsible for all aspects of strategic vision, capital formation, customer acquisition, service delivery, organization building, community development, and brand management.
