I've been at Kin + Carta for almost a year now, working in the strategy and innovation practice as a data strategist. This follows a 15 year career in health care working with providers and payers, as well as on mobile platforms to improve patient experience and health outcomes. I’ve led business strategy and data strategy and have a lot of experience and passion around digital transformation in the healthcare space, and how we can use it to improve the healthcare experience.
Part of my motivation to work in the healthcare industry comes from first hand experience through my own family members dealing with complex medical conditions. They directly faced a healthcare system that can sometimes be overwhelming in the best of circumstances, and even more so when you’re suffering from a challenging medical condition or diagnosis.
This is the reason why I started in the industry — I really wanted to improve health care for everyone. It's a complicated system, and I saw a lot of need for improvement and opportunity to do things differently. And that’s where my passion for data comes into play. The potential to use it to tackle many of the challenges in surfacing the right information to patients, as well as providers, is huge. My work has been focused on doing this more efficiently, so that people are empowered to make better decisions about their health. My goal is to make information and data more accessible, so it can be leveraged to improve health care.
