Health systems like Providence Health & Services and OSF HealthCare have accepted the digital rounding tool called Orchid with open arms because it adds value for their hospitals and care providers.
Today, CipherHealth's software is up and running in over 300 hospitals. The New York-based startup hopes to expand its share of the acute care market and move into other care settings. Orchid's adaptability allows the program to fit into subacute care units, long-term care hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.
“It has been a tremendously fun journey over the last six years, watching the company grow and seeing the adoption of our technology,” said Alexander Hejnosz, co-founder of CipherHealth along with Randy Cheung and Zachary Silverzweig. Before launching the startup, the 29-year-old entrepreneur worked as an emergency medical technician and studied biology at the University of Pennsylvania.
