The Hospital Finance Podcast, Derek Streat, CEO

Besler’s The Hospital Finance Podcast™ speaks with Derek Streat, CEO of Dexcare, a healthcare access optimization platform that’s raised over $110 Million in funding, to uncover why technology platforms are becoming mission critical for U.S. health systems.

Listen to the Podcast:

Derek is founder, CEO, and chairman of DexCare, an accomplished healthcare technology entrepreneur, and executive who cofounded and/or has been at the earliest stages of six venture-backed companies, including C-SATS, acquired by Johnson & Johnson; Classmates acquired by United Online; Medify, acquired by Alliance Health Networks; and AdReady acquired by CPXi. He is also actively involved in national healthcare data transparency efforts for the improvement of patient care as a cofounder and board member of two leading data-sharing organizations, PEDSnet and the Improving Renal Outcomes Collaborative or IROC.

In an excerpt from the podcast, Derek notes, “…It’s really important that health systems not only handle the demand side of their business, but also orchestrate that with the supply side, and make sure that those resources are matched appropriately to consumers and patients in a way that finds the spaces in between — so that more patients can be seen — and also in a way that doesn’t burn out providers. And so DexCare, in sum, is really this orchestration platform that orchestrates a demand, the consumer/patient side of healthcare, with the supply or the provider health system side across all service lines, and really for the benefit of optimizing access for all stakeholders.”
