What happens when you focus over 100 years of combined health care experience on the industry’s most difficult challenges? You get passionate leaders who roll up their sleeves to be part of the solution. The Medicity Leadership Team guides a company dedicated to creating innovative solutions for hard problems.
“Early in my career I watched a patient enter the hospital with a small cart holding 2 milk crates that contained his medical records. I was disheartened that a patient had to work so hard to make sure his provider had access to his information. I knew there must be a better way and from that point forward, I have dedicated my career to the development of clinically connected communities and tools that allow providers to receive the data they need when and where they need it, to improve patient care. At any given time, our solutions have a direct impact on one of the key elements of our lives, which is our health. I approach our delivery to customers with this in mind: that your family's and my family’s health depends on it.”

“My guiding philosophy on effective product management is that it’s a high-wire balancing act between strategic vision and disciplined execution. It calls for the creativity and curiosity to seek “big ideas” while maintaining a firm sense of practicality and user awareness. The trick is not only doing these activities well but being able to smoothly switch between the two sides of the brain when necessary. We love to wear many hats and know when to wear which one.”
