CEO's Corner: It’s not a Debate, Healthcare is Broken

Healthcare is broken. And debating who should be paying for it is a fool’s argument. The problem is not

just who pays—it’s what we are buying.

For the past ten years, Emerge has been on a self-funded quest: Saving Healthcare. All of us in the

healthcare system are understandably obsessed with data. But data is useless if it cannot be accurately and quickly digested by healthcare providers. We have designed and created a patient-centric platform that complements, not replaces, existing electronic health records systems, sliding into existing workflows and supporting providers at the point of care. Our tools and solutions easily allow for micro- and macro-analysis of the entire population and full data interoperability. Our platform works no matter the underlying software, tech stack, or ecosystem.

Over the past ten years, I’ve been asked more times than I can remember:

• Why, if data digestion is such a problem, Google, Microsoft or Apple hasn’t come up with a solution?

• Or why not Epic? “They do everything.”

• My favorite, though: “Well, actually, we are looking at developing our own solutions.” JPMorgan, Amazon, and Berkshire Hathaway came together in Haven to disrupt healthcare. After three years, Haven is no more.

Emerge is epoxy for healthcare. Healthcare is complicated; Emerge is easy by design. Our greatest asset

is our people. Without them we are nothing, just as the American healthcare system runs not on data, but

on providers and their teams. Always, it’s the people.

At Emerge, we provide more than a SAAS tool. We provide our people, working for you 24 hours a day.

That’s why providers using our platform provide higher quality care, see better outcomes, and enjoy

greater profitability, all with zero capital expenditure and no risk.
