Essia Health today announced that founder and chief medical officer, Kathleen Myers, MD, is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Award in the Pacific Northwest.
The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Dr. Myers was selected as one of 23 finalists from 21 companies in the Pacific Northwest by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event June 20 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, Washington.
“Dr. Myers’ commitment to expanding our position in the medical scribe industry to create a successful EMR optimization business has been a crucial success factor that differentiates Essia Health from our competitors,” said Matthew Kirchner, president and chief executive officer, Essia Health. “From the start, Dr. Myers’ focus on clinical excellence and exceptional customer service provided the foundation to expand the business into challenging new markets to rapidly accelerate company growth. Being named a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is a testament to her foresight that has led Essia Health where we are today – a leader in shaping how the adoption of new and rapidly changing information technologies can optimize the provider and patient experience.”
Essia Health (formerly Scribes STAT) was founded in 2011 by Dr. Myers, an emergency department physician who realized at-the-elbow support could dramatically transform the adoption of electronic medical record (EMR) technologies to improve physician productivity as well as patient satisfaction. In addition to providing specially trained medical scribes to healthcare organizations throughout the U.S., the company specializes in EMR implementation services and has successfully completed more than 100 EMR go-lives with major hospital networks and specialty clinics.
“When I was first using an EMR, I realized that I didn’t want to be the doctor who had my back to the patient while I was typing into my computer, and I was sure other doctors felt likewise,” Dr. Myers said. “I started the medical scribe program in my ER physician group as a way to integrate EMRs while re-humanizing the healthcare experience. When hospitals and specialty clinics started making significant investments in information technology to meet the Affordable Care Act’s EMR adoption deadlines, I realized that the model I started to solve our needs internally had significant potential in the marketplace. I’m proud of the entire team at Essia Health because I believe that being named as an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist recognizes our combined efforts to improve the business and practice of medicine at the point of care.”
