Colorado Companies to Watch spotlight: Connexall USA
Snapshot: Connexall provides a hospital-wide platform that connects people, systems, tasks and devices. Its software product and services facilitate the exchange of health information across the care continuum to ensure patient safety and care.
Leadership: John Elms has been president of the Boulder company since 2010, the year it was founded.
Pivotal moment: When it established a U.S. corporation, Connexall sought a chief marketing officer with expertise in the American health-care market. The company began to approach its target customers by talking about patient care and the challenges clinicians and support staff face, rather than using the language of information technology.
Technological edge: "Virtual call points allow a condition or user request to trigger an action, not simply an alert from a medical device," the company says. "These innovations allow Connexall to improve hospital efficiency and ultimately patient care."
Company culture: Connexall’s culture is based on solving the root problems in health-care workflow. That means developing a deep understanding of interdisciplinary workflow and then applying technology to solving those problems.
