LifeNexus, creator of digital health solution iChip®, announced today that Kris Jamsa, Ph.D., MBA, has been named Chief Technology Officer.
“As we bring our mobile-based iChip solution to market, it is essential that we have a strong, strategic leader and technology expert driving product development,” said David R. Strand, Chief Executive Officer at LifeNexus. “Since Kris joined LifeNexus in 2014, he has played a critical role. We are pleased to have him leading our technology initiatives as we prepare to rollout iChip to health plans, providers, and consumers in 2016.”
After over 25 years of leadership and P&L experience specifically in the healthcare, computer, retail, and publishing industries, Dr. Jamsa joined LifeNexus in 2014 as the Director of Application Development. In that role, he led multiple design and development teams through the process of creating the first iChip mobile application. As CTO, he has seen that project through to completion as iChip Mobile launched in Google Play and iTunes stores earlier this month.
LifeNexus created iChip, a mobile and cloud-based technology, to empower consumers to instantly access and share their personal health information for a better healthcare experience. Leveraging health plan data, analytics, and programs, this technology automatically updates and populates an iChip Health Record that consumers can view, enhance, and share from a web-based portal and, now, a mobile app. By delivering patient-specific health plan data at the point of care, iChip also creates millions of opportunities for health plans and doctors to work together to simplify and personalize healthcare for consumers.
“History has shown that technology will allow us to solve many of today’s most challenging healthcare issues and problems,” said Dr. Jamsa. “Our effort isn’t just about getting better diagnostics and data to clinicians faster; it’s also about protecting patient privacy and keeping patient data secure, while empowering the consumer and facilitating the much-needed exchange of medical information. Just as advances in medicine save lives, so, too, do advances in technology. I am honored and challenged each day to be on the cutting-edge.”
LifeNexus is the creator of iChip®, a product that empowers consumers with their health information anywhere they need it.
