1. Tell us a little bit about your role at Examinetics, and how your role contributes to the overall mission of Examinetics.
As Chief Technology Officer, my role is to make sure we utilize technology to advance our services offerings and introduce new innovations. Mapping out the future, while staying on top of current technology trends, is very important to our success. The best way to maintain a high level of client satisfaction is to utilize cutting-edge technology that will satisfy our client and produce timely and accurate information.
2. Why is technology important in the occupational health industry?
Understanding health at an individual or group level is important, and technology is a useful tool for collecting and organizing this information. The elimination of paper data gathering is necessary, as it is less accurate and more hassle. Technology makes data collection easy.
Through our product user interface and intuitiveness, our remote field technicians can effortlessly gather granular data - hearing, spirometry, blood and vitals - and send it back to data specialists.
3. What projects are you working on now?
My team and I are working on multiple projects:
We are upgrading our current mobile capture, which is a data-gathering process controlled via a product developed in-house. Part of the upgrade involved the installation of new x-ray software, which is completed and currently in use. Additionally, we replaced outdated spirometry technology with cutting-edge software. This will be fully operational this month.
We are also in the process of a complete rewrite of mobile capture for our cloud environment.
Additionally, our IT department will grow and gain more resources as we look to introduce new technology and innovation.
4. What do you think is the future of technology in the occupational health industry?
I think the industry has accepted technology in some ways, but will now accelerate into even more areas. Now, wearables, tablet-based, artificial intelligence, business intelligence and blockchain technology can easily manage data. In the future, I think we will other program management services come into play and provide holistic services that combine compliance and wellness into one platform.
5. What's the most rewarding/important part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is using technology to help solve business problems and client challenges. I really enjoy looking at a problem and strategizing how to fix it. It is gratifying to gather a team, create a product and witness the product's success and client happiness.
