Apixio Inc., announced today that its board of directors has appointed Darren Schulte, MD, previously the company’s president, to be chief executive officer. Schulte is replacing the current CEO and co-founder Shawn Dastmalchi, PhD, who will remain as an active board member.
Schulte has been with Apixio for nearly three years serving as chief medical officer and as president. Under Schulte’s leadership of Apixio’s go-to-market efforts, Apixio commercialized its risk adjustment solution, HCC Optimizer; significantly grew its customer base and revenue; and established itself as a pioneer in applying Big Data analytics for risk adjustment.
“I am very confident in Darren’s ability to lead Apixio and to achieve our overall vision,” said Dastmalchi. “Over the last few years I have had the pleasure of working with him closely as his operational responsibilities for the company have expanded. I look forward to continuing to work with Darren as an advisor and a board member.”
Dastmalchi helped establish Apixio in 2009 when increasing electronic health record adoption accelerated the creation of digital clinical data. With his vision and guidance, Apixio created a Big Data platform, the Clinical Knowledge Exchange (CKX), designed to unlock new insights from textual and coded data for clinical, quality, and cost improvement. The CKX platform powers the company’s HCC Optimizer product.
“I am excited to take Apixio through its next phase of growth. Shawn has helped provide a firm foundation for our future,” said Schulte. “Demand for our risk adjustment solution is strong as a result of increasing Medicare Advantage and commercial plan enrollment. Our executive team is a talented and seasoned group of individuals capable of enhancing our market leadership position and ensuring operational excellence.”

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
