"In a healthcare environment that has moved from volume-based to value-based, Health Fidelity is focused on improving quality and delivering efficiency by addressing an urgent need: extracting value from unstructured clinical data," said Shroff. "Being a part of this company presents an exciting opportunity to be involved in such a critical movement."
Before joining Health Fidelity, Shroff was Vice President of Products for Optum, where he was responsible for creating and bringing to market the company’s Health Information Exchange (HIE) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) product suites. Shroff was instrumental in defining the roadmap to integrate HIE into Optum’s broader cloud strategy. He also led initiatives to integrate the HIE product suite with Optum’s analytic assets to deliver richer solutions to clients.
Prior to that position, Shroff was Vice President of Products at Axolotl Corp. (later acquired by Optum) where he helped the company achieve a leadership position in the HIE market. Shroff pioneered the use of service oriented architectures (SOA) and introduced one of the first SOA platforms in the HIE industry which enabled an open, heterogeneous environment for rich solution delivery to clients. Shroff also introduced the industry’s first connected data warehouse, which aggregated data flowing through the HIE for downstream analysis. With these and other efforts, he helped Axolotl more than double its revenues during his tenure.
Last month, Health Fidelity launched REVEAL™, a cloud-based natural language processing (NLP) service, based upon the understanding that to improve patient outcomes and leverage workflow efficiencies, health care organizations (HCOs) must unlock the value of clinical information locked in unstructured form. An estimated 80 percent of these data are trapped within the notes of physicians, nurses and care managers, making it difficult for applications to utilize the full, detailed record of a patient that HCOs need in order to achieve gains in quality, coordination of care, HIE interoperability and accountable care.
