The Future of Healthcare: An Interview with Derek Streat, CEO of DexCare

The healthcare industry has been undergoing a significant transformation, fueled by technology and the need to better serve the increasing demands of the patient community. While the road ahead is still long, companies like DexCare are striving to bridge the gap between the healthcare providers and consumers. In a recent podcast interview, Jared S. Taylor spoke with Derek Streat, CEO of DexCare, to get insights into the company’s vision and the challenges they face in revolutionizing healthcare access.

The Inspiration Behind DexCare

Derek, like many entrepreneurs, was personally touched by the limitations of the existing healthcare infrastructure. “I got into healthcare because we had some pretty significant health breakdowns in our family,” he mentioned. This personal experience triggered Derek to focus his career on healthcare solutions.

What is DexCare?

DexCare is an access optimization platform that offers exceptional access to healthcare through better decision-making and intelligence. The company focuses on bridging the gap between patients, healthcare providers, and health systems. The platform seeks to understand patient intent, provider capabilities, and system needs to make intelligent decisions about matching patients with appropriate healthcare settings and services.

The Vision and The Future

When asked about what excites him the most about the future of DexCare, Derek provided a well-thought-out response:

“Well, I am most excited about delivering on this vision. It’s a bit of a broken record, I know. But what’s next is to continue to climb that mountain to deliver this exceptional access,” Derek says. “Now, when you double-click on it, it means better decisioning, more intelligent decisioning. We don’t have to increase the breadth of what we’re doing; it’s about depth in those areas.”

Derek further elaborated on how DexCare aims to improve healthcare access by focusing on more specialized disease categories and leveraging data for better decision-making.

“We’re doing it right if we never touch bottom,” Derek added, emphasizing the never-ending pursuit for improving healthcare solutions. He specifically mentioned exciting upcoming work in the oncology space in collaboration with CHN in Indiana and their partner, MD Anderson.

In conclusion, Derek’s vision for DexCare is focused on increasing the depth of how healthcare access can be bettered. The long-term goal is to use predictive models that can foresee patient outcomes years down the road, based on intelligent data processing and decision-making today.
