“The sheer amount of time providers spend documenting in the EHR and performing other administrative tasks inspired me to get into healthcare IT and interoperability over 13 years ago,” said Henry Archibong, the new head of interoperability and innovation at HealthMark Group. “Breaking down the data silos that persist in our industry and enabling seamless data sharing through innovation is vital for achieving the healthcare Quadruple Aim: improving health outcomes, patient experience and care team wellbeing, while also reducing costs. HealthMark Group is perfectly positioned to make a material difference in facilitating data sharing so that providers can focus on caring for their patients and improving health outcomes.”
