The Future of TechnologyAdvice and Healthcare IT with Drew Settles
Part of our work as consultants in Behavioral and Women’s Healthcare is to help our clients find the best EHR solutions for their organizations. We stand on a pretty tall soapbox and offer complimentary tools to help people through the maze that can certainly feel harrowing. TechnologyAdvice is a fresh face out in the marketplace offering excellent advice and services to healthcare providers and agencies but also to the EHR vendors we care about. It has been our distinct pleasure to introduce several Behavioral Healthcare vendors to TechnologyAdvice so that providers looking for help finding the right tools have plenty of options.
We enjoyed being invited on their Expert Interview Series discussing buyouts and sub specialties within the EHR market. During our pre-interview calls we were introduced to Charles “Drew” Settles who fast became one of our favorite guests. We refer to him as “The Brain” and certainly hope he’ll join us as a series regular. No topic was off the table. We simply had to fit in as much invaluable information to a thirty minute segment as possible (we still went over time but we promise it’s worth a listen – be prepared to take notes). We covered what TechnologyAdvice has to over software vendors. We encourage all Behavioral Health EHR vendors to sign up with their services so consumers aren’t limited in their choices.
TechnologyAdvice is extremely vendor friendly and wants to suggest multiple EHRs to anyone communicating with them. The more EHR vendors we have vetted and hosted on our radio show that can be showcased with TA the better. They are a large organization but run their company like a start-up which explains how quickly they’ve been able to entrench themselves in the software world. Having people like Drew in charge of analyzing products and looking at long-term reviews of software is what makes this organization stand out.
Let’s tell you a little bit about our esteemed guest. Charles “Drew” Settles was born and raised in Nashville, Tenn. He spent his formative years at Culver Academies before attending Middle Tennessee State University for a degree in Electronic Media and Economics. When he’s not writing about technology, he can usually be found in the kitchen, cooking or brewing up something delicious. He is a Product Analyst at TechnologyAdvice, a technology marketing and research firm dedicated to educating, advising, and connecting buyers and sellers of business technology. In his work, Charles has extensively written and researched topics related to healthcare IT, business intelligence, and other emerging technologies.
