“I am excited to join a company striving to elevate the standard of patient care by eliminating missing links and accurately connecting all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem. Today, patients receive disparate and uncoordinated communications from diverse healthcare entities without a method to ensure the accuracy of patient contact information. CAREier’s mission is to implement a modern, consistently updated digital system of electronic communications to close important gaps and facilitate each entity’s ability to connect with and focus on each patient safely throughout the continuum. I am excited about playing a significant role in that effort.”Dr. Michael Hunt – CAREier Chief Medical Information Officer
