Chico, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
SyTrue, the nation’s premier clinical intelligence platform, has expanded its distinguished executive management team with the addition of Dr. Ketan Patel as Chief Medical Officer (CMO). With more than 13 years of experience, Dr. Patel brings invaluable, real-life experience from a physician and clinical informatics perspective, furthering SyTrue’s success in the healthcare industry.
As SyTrue's CMO, Dr. Patel will be creating, piloting and spreading innovative technologies, processes and business models that will increase value for all SyTrue stakeholders. SyTrue's founder and CEO, Kyle Silvestro, is excited to welcome Dr. Patel to his rapidly growing company and had this to say.
"When expanding your core team it's critical to add members that share the same passion, drive, ability and belief that we can make a dent in the world. It's even more important to surround yourself with people of good character, having high sense of honor and a deep sense of personal responsibility as we embark on a mission to impact a billion people. We've found that in Dr. Patel."
Dr. Patel's interests in health technologies flourished from an early point in his career. With an emphasis on medical technologies aimed at improving the clinical data workflow and improved detection of disease at the point-of-care, Dr. Patel is renowned for his extensive training in chronic pain and addiction management (including coursework at Harvard University) which led him to this clinical focus for the last decade.
A graduate of University of Toronto Medical School, Dr. Patel currently directs a private health incubator on a number of North American health technology, research, and informatics projects intersecting physician/provider education, integrated diagnostic platforms, novel medical devices, automated laboratory systems, clinical decision-support systems, disability prevention and validation methods, and the use of artificial intelligent systems to predict and guide chronic disease, all of which are aimed at optimizing care while reducing delivery risks and case costs.
The problem of combining and mobilizing previously inaccessible data stored in electronic health record “vaults” led Dr. Patel to seek out luminaries in this field. This spurred the collaboration with SyTrue’s Silvestro, who has been focusing his efforts on re-defining how physicians could use existing data for predictive analytics and computerized physician order entries – two key matters which stand to revolutionize clinical workflows in all specialties.
As Chief Medical Officer of SyTrue, he brings a broad clinical perspective on frontline health care to the diverse and influential team. Most importantly, the shared dream and vision of impacting large populations, and the health teams that care for them, through activated data is a main factor in Dr. Patel's decision to join SyTrue as their new CMO.
Dr. Patel is a recent graduate of the FutureMed program at Singularity University, located at NASA Ames (he now serves as an advisory board member at Singularity University). He will soon be relocating to the Silicon Valley (California) to be connected to the ongoing revolution in health data solutions.
SyTrue’s platform as a service (PaaS) is reinventing clinical documentation while revolutionizing expectations around data usability and interoperability. SyTrue’s clinical analytics allows health systems, physician groups, clinical researchers and pharmaceutical companies to mine their multi-sourced clinical data and, in short, create longitudinal records of patient populations, usable in seconds.
