Atlanta, GA, United States, 2015/04/03 - Garry Gause, Regional CEO for Tenet Healthcare, brings decades of experience and perspective to support rapid growth of EVOQ - EVOQmd.com.
EVOQ Medical, Inc. ("EVOQ"), an Atlanta-based startup focusing on improving physician productivity, today announced that Garry Gause, Regional CEO, Southeast Region for Tenet Healthcare, has joined EVOQ’s Board of Directors to provide business leadership and counsel. The appointment of Gause, a respected visionary in improving hospital system profitability, is testament to the power of EVOQ’s solution and its potential to revolutionize healthcare.
“I’ve known Garry for years, and he knows how to solve the issues that plague so many hospitals and their physicians,” Reuben Buckareff, Co-Founder and CEO of EVOQ. “EMRs have been extending their reach throughout healthcare with the intent of increasing the quality of patient outcomes and ensuring continuity of care across providers, but have done so at the expense of physician productivity and capturing truly meaningful data. Garry’s experience in understanding the needs of high productivity physicians and how to keep them highly productive will complement the guidance already provided by our Board of Directors and our Physician Advisory Board.”
Gause has a solid track record of improving the effectiveness in hospital and multi-facility operations. He has been with Tenet for the past 16 years and was most recently the CEO of Brookwood Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama. Prior to Tenet, Gause served as CEO at hospitals throughout Alabama.
“I have seen first hand the impact that new regulations and standards have had on the productivity of physicians,” says Gause. “Physicians are, in many cases, spending more time in front of the computer screens than they are in front of patients. We must find a way to embrace these new regulations and collect needed data, while reducing the burden on providers so that they can deliver the quality care that patients demand and deserve. EVOQ understands this issue, and has an amazing solution to help move the needle.”
EVOQ (evoqmd.com) is focused on improving EMR data quality while simultaneously improving physician productivity. Through its iOS-based blynq solution, physicians can easily access and publish information across EMRs using natural dictation and through intelligent patient record matching. The Atlanta-based company’s clients include major hospital systems in the Southeast, independent for-profit medical centers, surgery centers, and physician clinics.
