In our Allscripts App Challenge Interview series, we have today Jonathan Baran, the CEO of HealthFinch.
HealthFinch is co-founded by frequent Health 2.0-er Lyle Berkowtiz, but we hear that Jonathan does all the work. Their first product is RefillWizard, a modular Rx refill application which they are integrating with several EMRs. And despite 2 technical degrees from UW, Madison, Jonathan somehow doesn’t work at Epic!
Compared to other major industries the health care industry has been slow to adopt technologies to make the delivery of care more efficient. Although the recent infusion of billions of dollars into health information technology by the federal government has encouraged providers and hospitals to adopt efficiency-enhancing technologies like electronic medical records, many critical health services are still delivered using inefficient systems and processes. We’ll hear from a range of companies creating and marketing technologies that will make the delivery of care quicker, faster and cheaper.
