About our Guest: 

Erick has been in the healthcare technology industry for the past 15 years. He began his career at Epic Systems where he had a knack for pushing the boundaries: leading the new Model System, the first Single Billing Office implementation, and first hospital community connect project. In 2010 he joined McKinnis Consulting Services as a Partner and Consulting Director. As a startup, he wore many hats at McKinnis, but had an emphasis on productizing solutions that leverage the EMR to automate routine tasks. 

After a successful exit to Navigant Consulting in 2016 he continued to push the boundaries of system optimization and also began the early stages of their healthcare intelligent automation team. In 2018 Erick founded Venddy to help solve healthcare vendor selection and management challenges. Inspired by the mission, he decided to join Olive in the summer of 2019 where he has served as VP of Product. His unique experiences with EMRs, consulting, and AI products led him to start Rotera, the only AI consulting and custom development company built on the Olive platform. Erick is based in Denver Colorado and is a proud member of the Catalyst healthcare community.
