“Be part of something greater than myself”—that’s what inspired my career in healthcare technology more than 20 years ago, and it’s what still drives me as I take the helm as CEO of SRS Health. As we close out the first month of the new year, I’m happy to say that the SRS team is devoted to the same goal: we are continuing to develop the solutions, services, and support that our clients need to succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s healthcare landscape.
Outcomes. Value Based Care. MACRA/MIPS. Yes, the healthcare world is changing at a rapid pace, and part of our mandate is to keep clients up to date on changes in technology as well as in regulations. But our larger concern is to preserve the one thing that has not changed—the passion that inspires individuals to enter medicine in the first place. We cannot allow technology and government requirements to diminish that passion, or to degrade the experience of physicians, clinicians, or patients. The SRS EHR was originally developed as an alternative to point-and-click technology that interfered with the doctor-patient relationship, and SRS promises to continue to protect our doctors’ ability to do what they do best.
How? First, by knowing our clients’ patient-care and practice goals, and then by collaborating with them and our partners to create intelligent, innovative solutions with the flexibility to fit both those blazing new trails in value-based care, and those that are just starting out. The challenge is to succeed not just at the practice of medicine, but also at the increasingly complicated business of medicine. At SRS, we believe your healthcare technology should help you do both. It should be simple, practical, and easy to use—it should take care of business so that you can take care of patients.
My experience in healthcare and frequent conversations with clients have helped me understand the challenges facing physicians and practices today. Rest assured that I will sustain SRS’ commitment to ensuring that our clients are well-informed and well-prepared to face today’s and tomorrow’s marketplace challenges: we will continue to develop core and partner solutions, services, and support that ensure that doctors can focus on what matters most.
I look forward to my new role at SRS, to further discussions about the challenges facing healthcare today, and to meeting you at an upcoming industry event!
