I am a registered nurse who after years of hospital nursing returned to school to earn my MBA in Health Care Administration. For over 45 years, I have combined the skills and experience of my clinical training with the business theories of efficiency and positive impact to create innovative products to assist patients to improve their health status.
I appreciate the value of medical data to identify and impact clinical trends and the value of positive data to motivate an individual to continue to work toward treatment compliance.
During the last 20 years, as a family, I have cared in-house for my parents and husband’s mother. The value of keeping appointments, medications and goals organized was a battle as I tried to balance home care vs. working at home for my employer. I attempted to keep things organized by use of an Excel® spreadsheet but a tool such as RememberStuff would have been so efficient for our family.
In 2015, my sister was diagnosed with cancer and once again the need to keep track of medications, procedures, appointments and consultations became a burden when she no longer could respond accurately to questions posed by the treating providers. More than once during an ER admission, I thought if “only I had a way to keep it all her history organized and just give it to the physician asking the questions”; would it not be more accurate and time saving for everyone?
In 2016, after my years of product development, clinical experience, care of seniors striving to be independent and finally the acute care of the cancer patient who would benefit from a clear treatment perspective and avoidance of duplicate, unnecessary services, came together and I arrived here at Eperture.
The opportunity to use my life’s experiences, to see my thoughts on data organization and patient motivation combined with today’s technical capabilities come to life in a tool that is easy to use and welcomed by its user was too exciting and market ready to pass up! So, I joined this organization and believe we will bring this concept to operational life and meet the needs for so many end-users as they strive to manage their individual health status.
