The TransformativeMed Journey
The TransformativeMed journey began in 2010; not as the company we are today, but as a project within the University of Washington Medical Center, as they were rolling out a new EHR enterprise-wide.
Back then, as a Trauma Surgeon at UW, Dr. Erik van Eaton was frustrated by the millions of dollars spent on his “modern” EHR. He saw it did little to help eliminate the breakdowns in communication due to poor handoffs.. He was frustrated by the generic workflow of the EHR, as well as the clunky user interface. And, he found himself constantly “hunting and pecking” for information within the EHR.
Refusing to accept the status quo, he went looking for a solution. At that time, David Stone was the lead architect for the new EHR deployment. Erik got together with David, explained his challenges and David got to work on a solution. David’s work ultimately led to the original development of what is now widely known as Cerner MPages.
Together they created the Core Workflow Suite within UW, with specialty-specific workflows and tools to foster better care team collaboration and communication. Other clinicians were excited about the new capabilities embedded within their EHR and adoption took off like wildfire.
Word got out beyond UW and other hospitals and health systems were clamoring for these capabilities. As time went on, Erik, David and UW saw that they couldn’t keep up with the demand. Seizing an opportunity, Erik and David founded TransformativeMed as a separate, standalone company.
Core Work Manager adoption spread by word of mouth amongst the clinical community because, well, it just made their EHR better. And today, TransformativeMed is proud to serve more than 130 hospitals across the USA and is expanding internationally. Tens of thousands of clinicians rely on TransformativeMed every day, to help them deliver better patient care.
