Copient Health was founded in early 2019 to specifically address the inefficient use of one of a hospital's most expensive resources: the operating room. This inefficient use leads to unneccesary costs, lost revenue opportunities and compromised access for patients.
The company's CEO and co-founder previously brought software-based solutions to the risk management and patient access segments of healthcare, successfully growing and later selling companies in each segment. They hypothesized that software solutions rooted in a similar approach to intelligent process automation, coupled with machine learning-based predictive analytics could be applied to the issue of OR utilization, and could yield dramatic results.
The 2020 pandemic brought about considerable change in daily life, including the way many of us work. After founding, growing, and eventually selling two "traditional" healthcare software companies, as well as starting Copient Health under the traditional model, the Copient Health team has adopted a new model. Copient Health embraces virtual work, a flat organizational structure and modern collaboration tools. This allows us to realize the tremendous gains in productivity, freedom and flexibility such a model offers. It also allows us to work with the best and brightest, regardless of geographic location.
Our team is growing. If you have interest in joining, please send us a note.
