Meet The CEO!
The ongoing problem of patient dissatisfaction and efficiency has been a riddle for hospitals and medical care facilities all over the world. Nurse call buttons and pagers are the current standards of communication between patients and care teams but the actual communication between the two parties is far from perfect. Constant understaffing requires nurses to have a higher workload leading to poor workflow in the hospital resulting in low patient satisfaction. The solution? Hospi-Call! With our improved communication platform, nurse efficiency, hospital communication, and patient satisfaction will all significantly increase. Dean Shilo, a co-founder, and CEO is leading the charge to revolutionize patient care. Take a look at the interview below to learn more.
Q: Tell us about yourself, where did you grow up?
A: I grew up in Laurel, MD, a small suburban town in between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. It’s very exciting living so close to two major cities in the healthcare world.
Q: Where did the idea of Hospi-Call come from?
A: Hospi-Call was born in the Maternity Department at Hadassah Hospital, Mount Scopus, Jerusalem. Our partner company, Hilma was selected to solve a communication issue within the department between patients and their care teams. As we began to develop this new technology, we realized how widespread this issue is. We knew we had to develop a new system that anyone could use to enhance healthcare for patients around the world because they deserve better.
Q: What is your favorite part of being the CEO of a start-up company?
A: There are many aspects of my role that I enjoy, but if I have to select my favorite, it would probably be the excitement nurses and patients have when they use our system. The feedback we get is instrumental to the success of our system. Without it, our system wouldn’t be as valuable as it has become and will continue to be.
Q: Where do you see the company going?
A: Our vision and roadmap have drastically changed since the pandemic. We are carefully analyzing the shifting trends in the healthcare industry to better understand the upcoming needs. For example, telemedicine is gaining significant traction from all stakeholders, showing the need for new platforms and technology. We are very excited to be involved in the future of healthcare technology.
