Dr. Patricia Salber (@docweighsin) had a chance to speak with Chris Martini, President of Network Solutions, a division of PatientPoint®, at this year’s 2014 HIMSS event in Orlando, Florida. Chris describes how they enable their physicians and hospitals with a multi-media communication platform (e.g. desktops, tablets, phones, tv, etc). The platform allows the physicians and hospitals to educate and communicate with their patient-base along the different journeys each patient may take.


A Little About Chris Martini

As President of Network Solutions, Chris is responsible for all business functions and financial performance of the Network Solutions business unit, as well as the PatientPoint provider sales strategy across all business units. Chris joined the company in 2007 to create a strategy to enter the hospital sector, which led to the acquisition of VVI, The Patient Handbook Company, one year later.
