Helping healthcare organizations streamline collaborative workflows & improve outcomes with intelligent interoperability
I highly recommend Todd and his firm. I’ve had the good fortune to know and work with Todd for nearly a decade. He is one of the brightest minds in healthcare, showing how technology should be used to drive quality of care up and cost of care down, and improving the experience for both the patient and the clinician. Todd’s unique blend of clinical mindset coupled with his deep technical expertise enables him to offer insight into practical, value-driving strategies and tactics. He has accomplished a tremendous amount in the value based care, HIE, and collaborative care spaces. He is skilled communicator, consensus-builder and change agent.
I worked with Todd while I was the Executive Director of the Idaho Health Data Exchange. Todd was generous in sharing his knowledge and expertise of both health care and health information technology with me as I was learning my role. He is a great collaborator who has a keen understanding of the dynamics of encouraging adoption of technology. He is an MD who understands and appreciates the promise that technology holds for the transformation of our healthcare system, while at the same time seeing the challenges it creates. He leads by example and inspires his team to strive for excellence. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Todd again.
In my career, I’ve found that marketing VPs and CIOs are something akin to oil and water. Very often, we just don’t mix. That’s not the case with Dr. Todd Rowland. From our first meeting shortly after Todd joined the senior team at Tidelands Health, I realized I had found a partner and friend. Todd is a thoughtful, inquisitive, kind and visionary leader. He encourages and challenges without ever seeming demanding or condescending. I learned a great deal working with Todd, and I am proud of what we accomplished together. He has keen insight into the importance of consumerism and is a champion for removing barriers that impede superior customer service. In short, Todd is a big-idea thinker who is also grounded in reality. It’s a refreshing and all-too-rare combination.
Todd is one of the smartest physician IT leaders I know. He has a great depth of understanding about the technical, business, organizational and workflow issues that have to be brought together to make health information technology and information exchange work. I would recommend him highly as a speaker, consultant and expert for a wide range of HIT and HIE related projects.
