Company co-founder and president transitions to new leadership role as CEO
February 25, 2016 – San Diego, Ca. – PatientSafe Solutions, a leader in clinical mobility solutions for healthcare enterprises, announced today the appointment of company co-founder, Si Luo, to the position of president and chief executive officer. Mr. Luo has played an integral role in the evolution of PatientSafe Solutions since its founding in 2009, and will continue to lead the company with an aggressive go-to-market strategy and a bold vision for the future of clinical mobility.
With more than 65 percent of physicians and nurses reporting to use some form of smart mobile device for care delivery purposes, the direct need for secure, enterprise-grade clinical mobility solutions has been increasingly important for health systems. In the past five years, PatientSafe Solutions has been pioneering mobile-enabled care delivery experiences with its PatientTouch® platform, the first comprehensive solution to deliver bedside workflows and clinical communications via a unified application experience for physicians, nurses and allied health professionals over mobile-enabled networks.
The PatientTouch® platform is currently enabling more than 30,000 clinicians across nearly 100 hospitals, processing over 90 million point-of-care clinical and workflow interactions on an annual basis. Health systems across the country have been leveraging this platform to eliminate harm, reduce waste, and improve productivity. With the successful launch of its clinical communications capability and a recent strategic acquisition that expands its network effect into post-acute care settings, PatientTouch® is now positioned to support health systems to address cross-continuum workflow, collaboration and context integration needs.
“With an extraordinary customer base, fruitful partnerships and a record year in commercial contracts, PatientSafe Solutions is well positioned to continue its growth trajectory in the market,” said Christopher W. Kersey, Chairman of the Board of Directors of PatientSafe Solutions. “PatientSafe’s board and employee base have tremendous confidence in Mr. Luo’s leadership to execute on the enormous opportunities in front of us and we stand behind the bold vision of helping health systems establish a true clinical mobility network that defines a new era of technology-enabled quality improvement and care coordination.”
“PatientSafe has always been blessed with supportive clients, partners, investors and employees. Our client partners are some of the best in the industry when it comes to their dedication to improving safety, quality and experience for their patients and clinicians,” said Mr. Luo. “Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a significant shift in the market when it comes to how to tap into the power of mobile and unlock the potential in all the infrastructure investments in EHRs and communications technologies. I’m humbled by the opportunity to lead a dynamic team and look forward to this next phase of market evolution with PatientSafe Solutions as a clear innovation leader.”
