Boston (PRWEB) September 11, 2015
UbiCare, an award-winning digital healthcare communications and technology company, and Quartz Labs, a software development shop based in Cambridge, MA, have formed a partnership to deliver the most agile technology products for hospitals and health systems worldwide.
Quartz founder Chris Turner, who has served as UbiCare’s Advising Chief Technology Officer since 2010, will lead a team of internal UbiCare product developers and external Quartz developers to continually enhance UbiCare’s innovative solutions for patient education and access to care.
“The structure of this partnership gives us the capacity to remain nimble and agile, while increasing UbiCare’s capacity to meet the growing demands for our technology,” said UbiCare CEO Betsy Weaver.
As Advising CTO, Turner built UbiCare’s internal development team and created the original architecture for the company’s key technical asset, the SmarteXp® platform. UbiCare SmarteXp is the marriage of technology and content that enables hospitals to guide and track patients through their unique care continuums. Turner has since assumed leadership of all of the company’s technical development efforts.
“Turner brings a new depth of development experience to our team,” said Weaver, “including more than 20 years creating software, firmware, hardware and medical devices for various startup enterprises.”
His career highlights include being a key member of the group that invented E Ink, used in Amazon.com’s Kindle™. He co-founded the engineering firm Granite Peak Technologies Inc. and developed an FDA-approved handheld portable electrodiagnostic instrument at the medical device company NeuroMetrix.
Turner holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
UbiCare, an award-winning digital healthcare communications and technology company, creates connections that make us all better.
By building and sustaining effective patient/provider relationships throughout the care continuum, UbiCare reduces unnecessary healthcare costs by up to 30%. UbiCare messaging series essentially turn hospitals and health systems into patient-centered innovators, educating patients and improving satisfaction.
