Dave Brown: Digital Assistant for Physicians and Nurses in Hospitals

QiiQ has created a digital assistant for physicians and nurses in hospitals, as part of the transformation of healthcare from a baroque industry to a brilliant beacon of humanity’s bright future.

Tell us about yourself?

engineer, father, world champion athlete, and CEO/Co-Founder of an exciting new technology company serving professionals in the healthcare industry.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Beware of false prophets. Email from strangers can’t always be trusted.

What problem does your business solve?

We are helping improve efficiency of care – specifically in the emergency department, where the healthcare crisis is hitting us all the hardest.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

Watching a friend die in the ER – unnecessarily. And thus being immersed in the world of healthcare operations, triggering a revelation – it can’t really be this bad, is it?

What is your magic sauce?

Focus specifically on clinicians, and not trying to serve too many masters – which leads to a technology solution that stands above others who try too hard to produce value for everyone, and thus land in domain of mediocrity.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Ensure that our efforts are actually producing happier physicians and nurses in emergency departments all over North America. That everyone agrees that we have been “healing the healers!”

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

The incredibly complex dysfunction of the healthcare industry, and the self-defeat in it’s attempts to hide that dysfunction from the public.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

There are many communities into which we speak: including those who invest in technology companies – with knowledge, connections and capital.
