Why are you interested in this group?

I spent the last month of 2012 in Silicon Valley where I went to multiple meetups packed with healthcare IT focused c-levels, informaticists, entrepreneurs, startups, venture capitalists and doctors in the Bay area actively seeking to pilot new technologies. There was Health 2.0, SVHealth, Health Technology Forum, etc. Upon returning to Pittsburgh I realized the Health IT entrepreneurial community here lacks a similar regularly scheduled monthly meetup focused on uniting innovations with pilots, investors, doctors, developers and other entrepreneurs. It only made sense to work with some other local CEOs and national Health 2.0 to open a chapter in Pittsburgh and begin uniting our community, too.

What is your role - i.e. Technologist, Medical IT, Physician, Administrator

I am an entrepreneur launching a health information technology startup – Treatspace.com. I bring a unique 360° perspective to healthcare technology discussions. I launched and built a full service medical marketing agency in the heart of the downtown Pittsburgh cultural district 10 years ago. I was named Young Entrepreneur of the Year by the Small Business Administration for my work there. We developed campaigns, brands and interactive initiatives for diagnostics, therapeutics and medical devices all over the country. On behalf of our customers we interacted with thousands of medical practices throughout the nation. Our interactive division intrigued me so much so that after a yearlong sabbatical I pivoted into health technology entrepreneurship when I returned. I haven't looked back.

Introduction
