Kate is the Founder and President of DataDx and DataDx Consulting. Prior to launching DataDx, Kate worked side-by-side with physicians as a practicing CEO and Administrator for various specialty groups. Kate then transitioned to healthcare business consulting, where she developed a high-performing consulting team to help serve the private practice market. As both a Practice Administrator and a Healthcare Consultant, Kate has witnessed first-hand the struggles clinics are up against when it comes to data management.
She has seen time and again the challenges of making smart decisions with disconnected and often outdated and error-prone data. It was this need that drove Kate to launch a software company, DataDx, with a group of other healthcare and engineering experts. Kate spent 5 years as an adjunct professor at Oregon Health Science University (OHSU). During her time at OHSU, Kate taught Strategic Planning and Organizational Development courses within the Healthcare Certificate and MBA program. Kate completed her MHA at Portland State University.
