The Sharp Index, a non-profit dedicated to reducing physician suicide through awareness and data science, recently recognized CareAlign CEO Subha Airan-Javia, MD with the ‘Best Health Tech Innovator’ award for physician burnout and suicide prevention.
As part of the Physician Symposium conference, leaders in health IT are virtually gathering to discuss the challenges facing the industry and celebrate leaders making a difference. CareAlign’s technology, which was founded by Dr. Airan Javia through her experiences as a hospitalist at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, is used by clinical teams to manage tasks, improve workflow, and lessen the administrative burden placed on clinicians such as documentation.
“Janae Sharp’s powerful story resonates with me and the entire team at CareAlign. I am honored to receive this award and will continue to work with my team to address the critical needs of all clinicians, who sacrifice so much from their personal lives to provide the highest quality of care to patients in need. We must, as an industry, pick up the pace of innovation and find solutions that remove pressure from clinicians’ daily workload so we can achieve the quadruple aim,” said Airan-Javia.
“I also want to congratulate the other nominees in this category — Dr. Docktor and Dr. Weidner — as well as the other award winners.”
CareAlign works with care teams in all healthcare settings including acute care hospitals, primary care clinics, and assisted living facilities.
