Innovation project and tagline
ArchiveCore reduces administrative delays in credentialing so that healthcare professionals can provide patient care for your system faster.
Problem your innovation solves
Each year more than 150,000 healthcare professionals must undergo an extensive background check known as credentialing before they
can begin treating patients. The traditional credentialing process typically takes 90-120 days. Each day that
a physician sits on the sidelines due to administrative delays, health care systems sacrifice $7000-$10,000 in potential revenue. With
ArchiveCore, hospital systems can verify primary source records in minutes so they can fill positions and onboard new hires faster.
Intended target audience/user of your innovation
Hospital systems with GME programs
Interesting experience while developing your innovation
Mistakes/hurdles along the way
Keel and I both continued to work jobs that were definitely more than 1.0 while also trying to build a tech company, and we both prioritized our hospital jobs over this project. I finally left my practice in July, which allowed me to participate in the Lighthouse Labs accelerator. We’ve grown so much in the last 6 months. I wish I’d taken that leap sooner.
We’ve both struggled with leveraging our networks. It’s taken a while to get over feeling “icky” about sales. We have a product that helps hospitals save money, helps physicians transition jobs sooner, and improves access to care, so now I’m excited about sharing this information.
Typical day in your life
I tend to wake up early (530ish) so I can get work done before everyone else is up. I walk the dog, have coffee, throw in a load of laundry & do my morning daily review to make sure I’m clear on my priorities for the day.
I’m a morning person, so I block my mornings for work that needs deep focus. I take a break around 11 to work out & get presentable in case I have afternoon meetings. The kids & I usually have a quick lunch together. Afternoons are for meetings and projects that don’t require as much focus. I try to block an afternoon hour a few days during the week to work with the kids on a science project or Scouts. I try to wrap up my work day around 5 to do house-related chores and fix dinner. We eat dinner as a family, and then I usually end up spending a few more hours working or in meetings after dinner.
