RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Envera Health has added another critical piece to its experienced management team in Cleveland Clinic leader Madhu Sasidhar, MD, who joins the healthcare engagement solutions provider as chief medical information officer.
“Madhu is a strong, experienced clinical leader with a wealth of experience putting data at the heart of care to drive decisions and improve outcomes,” said Dan Neuwirth, CEO, Envera Health. “Providing physicians with the right data, at the right time to make clinical decisions, is critical to improving both efficiency and engagement in healthcare.”
Sasidhar heads the respiratory therapy section of the Cleveland Clinic’s Respiratory Institute, where he has been a staff physician since 2008. Before that, he was chief of staff and ICU medical director of Eastern New Mexico Medical Center in Roswell.
Sasidhar has earned three certifications from the American Board of Internal Medicine, in critical care medicine, internal medicine and pulmonary medicine, and completed his fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Yale University.
“Better data and better ways in which to use that data can improve clinical delivery and result in better medicine,” Sasidhar said. “Data can help providers focus on the interaction with patients as much as the expertise.”
For example, using advanced analytics can ensure that treatment resources are focused on those in most need of preventive care and other early interventions, Sasidhar said. Using the right quality metrics, and having access to that information when referral decisions are being made, also improve the quality and experience of care, he said.
“Madhu will help to lead the continued development of clinical intelligence platforms and work with provider organizations to bring that intelligence to the heart of care delivery and improve the system of care,” Neuwirth said. “As a physician and self-taught programmer, Madhu understands that data must be hard-wired into care delivery, so the data drive and inform care decisions without getting between patients and physicians.”
