The United States spends more than $9,200 per person every year on healthcare. That’s three times more than other developed countries spend. Healthcare, and who pays for it, is one of the most controversial topics in the U.S. Congress today, and there’s no real solution in sight. Most entrepreneurs don’t jump into the healthcare debacle because they don’t how to tackle the issue. And the reason they don’t know how to tackle the issue is the complexities in the industry prevent them from taking a clear-cut path to solving this mess.
But there several entrepreneurs who focus on healthcare solutions, and Drew Madden is one of them. Madden is Healthcare IT entrepreneur, and he is on a mission to build experienced healthcare teams that can tackle issues like the ups and downs dealing with electronic medical records. Electronic medical records can improve the quality of healthcare, and they also make healthcare function more efficiently. But not all healthcare providers have access to a patient’s current medical records. Making patient medical records more accessible to all those who care for patients is a quest that makes sense. The government threw in $6.5 billion in incentives while Obama was president, to alleviate the confusion and the mix-ups in medical records, but the smooth distribution of accurate electronic medical records is still a serious issue.
Drew Madden is a leader in the quest to troubleshoot, optimize and eliminate the challenges inherent in electronic medical records platforms. During his six years with Nordic Consulting Partners, Madden built the largest Epic consulting company in the industry. Epic implementation services monitor risks and implementation services also include incorporating different mitigation strategies into the healthcare project plans. Epic services also establish a better communication process so appropriate adjustments are better understood.
Mr. Madden has a University of Iowa College of Engineering Industrial Engineering degree with a focus in Medical Systems. Madden has experience working with United Healthcare subsidiary Ingenix and the Cerner Corporation. And he is one of the managing partners at Evergreen Healthcare Partners. Evergreen provides advisory services for electronic medical records platforms.
