MedicFP® announced today that James Schwade, M.D. will join its board of advisors to help the company advance patient safety and healthcare fraud prevention through their patient identity verification technologies. Dr. Schwade will join a board of national healthcare leaders such as former four-time Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson and former Bush Administration official Ruben J. King-Shaw, Jr., to advise MedicFP® in the development and implementation of their leading-edge fraud prevention solutions.
Dr. Schwade has over 40 years of experience in radiation oncology and has participated the development of multiple new radiation therapy technologies. He has been a leader in the field of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT), with both the Gamma Knife and Cyberknife Systems. He established the first Cyberknife facility in the Southeastern United States, at the Cyberknife Center of Miami, which began operation in 2003. He has served on numerous boards and committees including gubernatorial appointments to the Florida Cancer Control and Research Advisory Board, the Florida Advisory Council on Radiation Protection and Florida International University’s Biomedical Engineering Advisory Board. He also served as Chairman of the Florida Committee for Healthcare Reform, a political action committee which advocated for the passage of Florida and national anti-self referral legislation.
Dr. Schwade has authored over 100 scientific articles and lectured extensively in the U.S. and abroad. His numerous professional accolades include the Florida Medical Business Physician Entrepreneur of the Year award and the Ultimate CEO award by the South Florida Business Journal.
“We are thrilled to have access to Dr. Schwade’s knowledge of provider operations and healthcare technologies to help shape our products,” said MedicFP’s CEO Wendell Elms, “as the healthcare industry seeks sustainable solutions, we are confident that MedicFP® will provide continued innovation that results in the reduction of medical identity theft and healthcare fraud.”
MedicFP’s technology helps prevent medical identity theft and phantom billing fraud. The software flags stolen or false identities prior to medical treatment, enabling health plans to avoid improper payments and protecting patients from erroneous healthcare bills and errors in their medical records that can lead to harmful medical care.
MedicFP® is a healthcare technology company that has developed the first point of care solution that prevents healthcare fraud before it occurs. Working in collaboration with some of the nation’s healthcare experts, they have created the next generation of healthcare fraud prevention that can not only save the healthcare system billions of dollars, but can also facilitate patient safety by protecting patient identity and medical records.
