“The team at Datica understands the rapid changes affecting healthcare. They were able to help us identify data integration strategies to create efficiencies, cost savings, and foster our culture of innovation. They help me navigate the crowded digital health landscape.”

You are charged with incorporating internal innovations and external products to better patient outcomes or reduce costs. But knowing which digital health ideas are worth implementing is hard! Datica’s experience can help you make sense of the tools and companies available at your disposal, and can help ensure trust through compliant cloud-based infrastructure and controllable integration.
Complement the EHR
The EHR has its technical limits, and few know them better than Datica. Our leadership consists of both former executive and in-the-trenches team members at Epic.
Datica is best positioned to help:
Innovation centered on the patient-doctor relationship
Clinical workflows designed during the initial EHR era are bursting at the seams. They can not adapt to new ideas. Understanding how best to incorporate new technology is emerging as a major functional gap.
Datica brings unique expertise around the best ways for technology to improve workflows.
DevOps resources are too often constrained or unavailable.
Even if you have a strategy in place, daily focus and annual updates require a DevOps-based skill set most organizations do not even have on staff.
Technical compliance requires a distinct expertise that is hard to find and expensive to cultivate.
HIPAA’s expansive rules and HITRUST’s hundreds of controls require full-time focus. Understanding how to map those rules to a technical strategy requires extremely rare and expensive expertise.
Casey has 10+ years of direct EHR implementation experience.
Early in his career he installed health information management software which gave him a strong foundation in maintaining the sanctity of the legal medical records, ingesting outside information into the record (transcription as well as outside records), and patient privacy. For most of Casey's implementation career, he partnered with CIOs and CMIOs to lead the implementation and manage the long-term maintenance of their systems. He knows where EHRs lack in functionality and agility and is passionate about problem-solving with innovative technologies.
In his Strategic Services role at Datica, he has facilitated data exchange partnerships between health systems and suppliers optimize the orthopedic supply chain (University of Kansas), found process efficiencies in outreach lab business (Hurley), provided guidance on new system integration techniques (Saint Luke's MO), and has completed grant applications to secure funding for new care models (University of Kansas).
“To help my health system counterparts succeed, I first have to understand what success looks like at the end of a project. Datica will not let customers fail and that starts with not leading, or letting them go down, the wrong path.”

Travis Good, MD, has been working in digital health innovation for over 10 years, since before it was called “digital health’, helping organizations large and small develop and deliver solutions for the future of care.
Dr. Good started his career performing security assessments for large healthcare entities like HCA and HHS before going to medical school and earning his MD / MBA. He began working with large healthcare systems like Catholic Health Initiatives and Denver Health on mobile health initiatives while still in medical school. After medical school, he worked closely with CIOs and CMIOs at major health systems as they developed strategies and technologies for patient engagement, population health, patient data collection, and data exchange with partners and HIEs.
He served as the Editor of HIStalkMobile, now HIStalkConnect, for eight years where he covered digital health and health innovation. He has spoken at conferences like the mHealth Summit, SXSW, HIMSS, the HITRUST Summit, and AHIMA on modern healthcare technology, compliance in the cloud, and mobile healthcare.
“Technology is fundamentally changing healthcare. Too often, these changes are driven by the technology with patients and providers, the users, as an afterthought. At Datica, I work closely with our customers to ensure new technologies and innovation serve the users and deliver on the triple aim.”
Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Datica
“Datica helps me remain agile as healthcare is pressured to change to value based, consumer-focused care. They are an invaluable partner.”
