Host of Dr. Nick: The Incrementalist – #TheIncrementalist

On this episode I talked to Dave Lareau, CEO of MediComp (@MedicompSys) who has been solving the problem of too much data but not enough information. Dave was involved in the early solutions that became the Lotus Notes platform moving from an early billing solution to a clinically focused solution designed to offer doctors a solution that matched their way of thinking. As he describes it

The more information a doctor is presented with the more specific their diagnosis gets

His search for solutions brought him to Medicomp where he has been for some time guiding the company to delivering semantic and data interoperability with breakthrough NLP. You can join them at HIMSS 2020 where you can find out how they are helping fix the EHR data challenges and they will be showing a range of solutions with partners such as Emtelligent and others.
