Commitment to Healthcare
Alan’s passion for the healthcare industry began as a young child after a trip to the hospital. His interest grew in college when he wrote a thesis on healthcare finance. During this project, he realized that hospitals were manually driven in just about everything they did on a daily basis and were operating 10 years behind. From registration to billing, automated processes simply did not exist.
It was at this time that Alan recognized an opportunity in the industry. Throughout his career, his work has always been driven by a consistent mission: finding ways to improve the care of sick children.
