JUPITER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--tevixMD, the leading provider of comprehensive, real-time healthcare payment and patient identification solutions, today announced Jerry Baker, veteran healthcare technology leader and advisor, as president.
“Jerry is a proven leader of early-stage angel and venture-backed healthcare technology companies with high-growth trajectories like ours,” said William Todd Andros, tevixMD, founder and CEO. “With 25 years of leadership experience across three Fortune 100 companies and a succession of start-ups, Jerry will be a tremendous asset for our continuing growth and market demand.”
Baker’s responsibilities include maximizing tevixMD’s capitalization, driving sales, developing partnerships and filling key senior management positions as the company continues to rapidly grow.
An expert in positioning early-stage companies for accelerated growth, Baker has raised over $10 million in angel and venture funding and achieved Inc. 500, Deloitte Technology Fast 500, MidAtlantic Venture Summit Top 100 and other recognitions while navigating successful acquisitions as a seller and buyer. As an advisor, Baker has served on seven boards of directors and lent his expertise to Panasonic Corp., Medivo (now Prognos) and Spreo Indoor Location Solutions.
Prior to joining the private sector, Baker achieved the rank of captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, serving as an artillery Guns Platoon Commander as well as Aerial Observer in the OV-10 Bronco aircraft.
Baker’s wide-ranging experience will be invaluable to the tevixMD team as its proprietary and patented technology continues its rapid adoption across the industry, including health systems, physician practices, labs, urgent care centers, ambulance companies and others.
“tevixMD is uniquely positioned in the very short term to solve one of the fastest growing problems for providers: the explosion of self-pay receivables and the associated increased bad debt write-offs,” said Baker. “Longer term, the potential of resolving all patient payment balances at the point of service will have a more direct, significant and lasting economic impact.”
With patients now representing healthcare providers’ third-largest revenue stream, behind Medicare and Medicaid, Baker is excited about tevixMD’s future and its trail-blazing solutions which arm providers with, among other things, real-time, on-demand patient deductible status and overall financial responsibility.
“I’ve never seen a company with tevixMD’s potential,” said Baker. “The intellectual property is patented and truly unique, and there is no one that I have yet seen offering such a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind set of solutions.”
tevixMD is on a mission to dramatically improve the financial landscape for healthcare providers and ensure healthcare providers get paid. tevixMD empowers providers with two main solutions: tevixPAS™, a powerful yet easy-to-use cloud-based platform that quickly validates a patient’s health insurance deductible status and accurately calculates each patient’s out-of-pocket expenses prior to service, and tevixPAY™, a solution that pays providers for services within twenty-four hours. tevixMD solutions are being used by healthcare providers throughout the U.S. and Canada including laboratories, MRI providers, urgent care clinics, hospitals, ambulances, emergency responders, and more.
