“What is your greatest fear, and how do you manage fear?”

“My greatest fear is to over-promise and under-deliver, in any form, within a business or non-business related context. I manage fear by acknowledging it and facing it when the time comes.”

“What were the biggest initial hurdles to building your business and how did you overcome them?”

It's Time for a smarter ER

It’s Time for Smarter and Friendlier Emergency Departments

For patients and family members, arrival to an emergency department can be an anxiety-provoking event.  Often, those responsible for the care are distracted, potentially ignoring or discounting your needs.  In reality, the opposite is often true.  The problem, until now, there has been no effective way for emergency healthcare systems to communicate this to the people that matter the most.

Instead, when arriving to an emergency department, patients should be directly connected to hub of vital care process information.  Creating an easy-to-use, yet powerful mobile application would provide this direct interface to the healthcare system. Patients will now be informed about what steps are being taken for care, who is on the care team and provided targeted informational materials.

It is time for smarter and friendlier emergency departments.

It’s time for transparency and patient-level control. Patients are yearning for it, they expect it and medical systems are looking for ways to meet their expectations.  That’s why I decided to build a solution.

Designed by the frontline, navigatER was built to address our patient’s needs. Through a unique partnership with cliexa, navigatER harnesses the power of digital health to drive patient outcomes in real-time.

navigatER provides a backstage pass for patients accessing emergency health care services. Learn more about this exciting new solution:

With this acquisition, cliexa-ProSkedge becomes a true end-to-end platform for clinics and health systems, offering solutions from onboarding to post-procedure monitoring to patients.

“Surgical care continues to grow at a high rate and COVID has pushed care out of hospitals and into higher value ASC’s. As cliexa enables the digital delivery of care across ambulatory clinic settings, ProSkedge adds that expertise into the ASC’s and the surgical space. cliexa now offers healthcare organizations a singular, comprehensive system for high value digital transformation across the entire patient journey.” said Dr. Kowalczyk, who is now a board member at cliexa and Chief Medical Officer for GI and Surgical Automation.

Dr. Kowalczyk added, “Colon cancer screening with colonoscopy is a great example of how we can improve the journey for the patient and practice.  New colon cancer screening guidelines drop the initial screening age to 45-49.  This patient demographic, consisting of about 20M people, has shown a higher demand to manage their healthcare through a digital medium like the cliexa-ProSkedge platform.”
