Before, throughout, and after my medical training, I’ve seen how important, challenging, and complex the path to “getting better” can be. I’ve seen how important it is to have a system of continuous, compassionate, high-reliability care surrounding the patient and the many family members and clinicians caring for the patient. I think that the ACT.md platform can help to enhance all healthcare practices by creating a patient-centered environment that supports transparent, accountable, and action-driven communication. It helps to create the kind of care that I want for all my patients, and for my own family. The team at ACT.md are all passionate about improving care, which makes it a fantastic environment to work in. When not at work, my wife, two children, and I are exploring nature, surfing, or building Lego.
