SAN ANTONIO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--AirStrip, the leading provider of mobile healthcare solutions for driving clinical transformation, has announced the promotion of Matt Patterson, MD, to the newly-created position of chief operating officer (COO).
“AirStrip is embracing the commitment to remain both clinician- and client-centric in all aspects of our everyday operations, the importance of which cannot be overstated”
Dr. Patterson joined AirStrip in 2012 as chief transformation officer, a role in which he integrated implementation, support, clinical transformation, and analytics efforts into a comprehensive approach to client engagement and operations. Those concerted efforts have improved client satisfaction and increased the speed of deployments, by improving the alignment of business goals with clinician ‘wins.’ Overall, this has strengthened the development and deployment of AirStrip solutions in satisfying the demands of mobile clinicians.
Dr. Patterson joined AirStrip from McKinsey & Company, where he was a core leader in the North American Healthcare practice's strategy and operations engagements. He focused on clinical and business model transformations of major U.S. health systems transitioning from ‘pay for volume’ to ‘pay for value’ environments. Prior to his stint with McKinsey, Dr. Patterson was a U.S. Navy physician, serving as the medical director of the Naval Special Warfare Center in San Diego, CA – the elite training command of the U.S. Navy SEALs.
“Matt has built an impressive career devoted to delivering higher quality care to more people at a lower cost,” AirStrip President and CEO Alan Portela said. “He has successfully translated our company vision into a solid go-to-market approach that demonstrates value for health systems working to address growth, consolidation, cost, quality, and physician engagement needs. Matt’s leadership will play a crucial role in the next stages of our growth and expansion, as providers increasingly rely on AirStrip to grapple with the demands of a rapidly-evolving healthcare landscape.”
“AirStrip is embracing the commitment to remain both clinician- and client-centric in all aspects of our everyday operations, the importance of which cannot be overstated,” Dr. Patterson noted. “I pull from my clinical training as a physician, operational background in the military and at AirStrip, and management consulting experience to support our overall mission – to build on AirStrip’s position as the enterprise mobility partner of choice for leading health systems.”
