World Renowned Patient Safety Expert Joins Advisory Board

by | Sep 30, 2022 | Press Release | 0 comments

CAREier, Inc., the revolutionary medical device communication company, is building an advisory board of patient safety and healthcare industry powerhouses. Its latest addition is world renowned, Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., F.C.C.M., a critical care physician and prolific researcher who has published more than 800 peer review publications; his scientific work has saved thousands of lives.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that Dr. Pronovost has joined our advisory board. As a global thought leader who has influenced U.S. and global health policy, I’m confident he will help us to champion a new chapter in healthcare IT, patient safety and medical device communication.”

Ryan Bass, Founder & CEO

When Bass founded CAREier, he sought to turn the world of medical device communication on its head. He didn’t just want an incremental improvement to the processes used today, he wanted to change the system – and eventually the world’s standards for patient level communication expectations. There’s no other platform like it.

CAREier provides a framework for seamless communication across the entire medical device spectrum for an automated, immediate, and secure delivery of patient electronic device information, device recalls, standards of care reminders and more.

“We really work from the top down. Everyone from the FDA to the patient is part of our holistic network. And we’re sure that our advisory board will help us to build a better medical device communication ecosystem. I’m truly humbled and honored to have Dr. Pronovost on board.”

Ryan Bass, Founder & CEO

In 2005, Dr. Pronovost was involved in the launch of a leading solution to the medical device communication problem and since then, he says he hasn’t seen any real innovation – that is – until now.

“Almost 20 years ago, I was involved in developing systems and processes related to the recalls experienced by health systems. Since then, innovation in this space has been slow and I was excited when CAREier approached me with their pioneering solution. CAREier is not an incremental improvement to today’s workflows, but is a transformative approach to more efficiently and effectively manage recalls and improve safety.”
