QPID addresses the data overload and lack of usability of EHRs, which make doctors, nurses and other clinicians less productive and can obscure critical patient health factors. QPID automatically extracts the essential patient narrative from structured and unstructured data scattered throughout the patient record. Pertinent patient data is packaged and delivered directly to clinicians, ensuring that decisions are made with the best available information. QPID Health raised $12.3m in Series B funding in May to meet the market demand for its solutions. QPID currently supports over 6,000 active clinical users, up from 4,000 at the end of 2013, its first year of commercial operation.
“At a time when the interest in our solutions is gaining momentum, Jim understands the pain that clinicians are facing just trying to do their jobs and believes QPID will greatly assist in this effort,” said Mike Doyle, QPID Health chief executive officer. “Hospitals are striving for ways to better incorporate their electronic health records into their workflow and are turning to our solutions to facilitate the transformation. With Jim on our team, our company is well positioned to handle the expanding market and to serve our customers with excellence.”
“I’m honored to be joining QPID as the Vice President of Sales,” says Mr. Dowling. “I’m pleased to support our customers through initial technology investments in enterprise EHRs, to a clinical and revenue cycle ROI through the incorporation of QPID’s technology. There is a definite and growing market need for the clinical intelligence that QPID provides. Hospitals and the government have already done the heavy lifting—so to speak—by moving their records from paper to electronic format. I am thrilled to help hospitals take the next step in enabling clinicians to work more efficiently and improve both the health of patients and their bottom line.”
