Courtney Schickel, Vice President of Marketing for Ingenious Med joined us in the studio to talk about improving the doctor-patient encounter. Seeking to put more physicians’ time with their patients, Ingenious Med automates the areas of care coordination, charge capture and advanced analytics for patient care teams. Schickel also discussed the aspects of patient data and security, explaining that Ingenious Med follows strict guidelines to protect patients’ privacy in this highly digital age.
