eRemede CEO Ben Sever Discusses Changes within Healthcare Technology during COVID19 at Tampa Business & Wealth Virtual Tech Connect
This past week the Tampa Bay Business & Wealth hosted a Virtual Tech Connect event via Zoom. This event was sponsored by Tampa-based medical technology company eRemede. In addition to sponsoring this event, eRemede CEO Ben Sever served as a panelist. Sever shared some stories of overcoming the many obstacles that come with a post-COVID19 world and the new norm of remote work and socialization. Sever noted that the “new remote” model doesn’t actually mean reduction in social interactions, but rather a pivot to utilizing tech such as Zoom & Skype to interact with their team and clients.
eRemede’s experience pivoting during the virus to create a product that can meet the current needs related to COVID-19 has been successful and has actually allowed eRemede to create a separate platform focused on community engagement with regards to medical health. Sever discussed not only the accessibility standpoint for the new platform for patients, but also the collection of data that can be invaluable for providers. Sever talked about the nature of how eRemede was founded as a startup. The startup model has allowed eRemede to pivot and flexibly deal with the challenges that this new norm has created. He also discussed the “open zoom” culture that eRemede fosters that allows every member of their team open lines of communication and the ability to be aware of all moving parts within the organization, if they are interested. This encourages collaboration while also providing increased awareness of operations to the whole team. Sever went on to talk about how important it is for his team to be involved with the community. He went on to say that he sees his company’s time in the office moving forward being broken down as 25% internal focused and 75% community focused.
Sever also recommended delegating day to day tasks and project management to your top trusted managers. eRemede took the four most senior leaders and put them in charge of their four verticals. Meanwhile, Sever took a step back to focus on big picture operations of the business. He said that originally the idea of breaking the company into teams was meant to be a temporary fix for COVID-19, however he said that with the success they will be keeping the teams permanent.
