In our first blog post, I noted that I am a problem solver. I never asked for Barbie dolls or dresses as a little girl; I wanted Legos and jigsaw puzzles. I also love big data – it’s completely fascinating to me. My knowledge of big data and ability to solve problems lead me to tackle a massive problem in healthcare communications.
But now I’m searching for the solution to my biggest problem to date: how to solve a massive healthcare problem without professional experience in the industry.
At 4D Healthware, we came up a number of solutions. First we educated ourselves on industry trends – going to conferences, speaking with industry experts, and general research – but that only took us so far. We needed real expert guidance from industry professionals. So we built out an advisory board.
The board has been a wonderful asset to us so far. The diversity and breadth of their expertise and helped us grow immeasurably. They have helped us secure partnerships and break into Chicago startup communities.
The relationships we’ve built so far have lead us another step closer to becoming healthcare technology experts. We are pleased to announce that we recently inked a partnership with Karma Health Partners (http://karmahealthpartners.com) – a revenue generation firm and consultancy for healthcare professionals.
We are in constant communication with KPH’s managing partner Steve Carbonara and Shahid Shah – who combined have over 40 years experience in healthcare technology. Carbonara and Shah are helping to not only guide our every day operations, but they’re serving as mentors in navigating the healthcare industry as well.
Through our partnership with KHP, we will be better able to expand our product to better to serve our customers. My problem solving skills combined with Carbonara and Shah’s insights into the healthcare industry mean we at 4D Healthware will be able to develop the best product for our users. We will be able to reach even more users, and offer better support.
We might not be healthcare experts, but with our partnership with Karma Health Partners and mentorship from Steve Carbonara and Shahid Shah, we hope to change that. We want to be a true asset to those who need to monitor their health. And all of us at 4D Healthware strive towards building the best product for our customers.
