Mike learned of the value of data early in his career. While working at a major EMR vendor in 2001, he led a project to help identify patients who were affected by drug recalls. He continued his work in various roles at Allscripts, including reporting, data exchange and systems architecture. From 2006 to 2015, Mike led the technology group at Galen Healthcare Solutions. While the company and his team grew by 50% annually during this time, they became known for excellence, earning awards like Best in KLAS for Technical Services and a Best Place to Work by Modern Healthcare. Mike joined Health Catalyst in 2015 to help with strategic client implementations. He has since joined the product development team to lead Health Catalyst’s text analytics initiative, making information previously locked in text notes available to Health Catalyst’s apps and data architects.
