PHILADELPHIA, PA (April 10, 2019) – In a ceremony at the American Medical Informatics Association’s (AMIA) 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference on May 1, Subha Airan-Javia, MD, TrekIT Health’s co-founder and chief medical officer will be recognized for leadership in her field. Dr. Airan-Javia will be inducted as a Fellow of the American Medical Informatics Association.
The milestone distinguishes Dr. Airan-Javia for her devotion to translational clinical informatics, a segment of the healthcare industry focused on identifying and developing technology for use in provider settings. Her long-time work as a hospitalist and Associate Chief Informatics Officer at the University of Pennsylvania Health System – alongside her colleagues – brought her to the genesis of TrekIT Health’s novel solution for clinical workflow management. For more than 10 years, she has sought to bridge the divide between clinicians and patients, working with all members of the healthcare ecosystem to improve care and create tools for better efficiency.
“The last decade of our industry has been marked by the rapid progress and advancement of technology,” Dr. Airan-Javia said. “This is not only a tremendous honor for me, as a healthcare professional and first-time entrepreneur, but for TrekIT Health, a company conceived in a healthcare setting and born out of necessity to improve the day-to-day life of clinicians.”
As an AMIA fellow, Dr. Airan-Javia will lead important discussions on industry issues and policy concerns, advocating on behalf of front line clinicians around the country who are overseeing an era of rapid change and technology development. She will join an inaugural class of fellows who will use the designation “FAMIA” (Fellow of the American Medical Informatics Association) in connection with and as representation of their professional activities and dedication to the field of clinical informatics.
Dr. Subha Airan-Javia’s accomplished career at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as her latest venture, TrekIT Health, made for a high-qualified candidacy. TrekIT Health is a platform geared toward improving efficiencies in hospitals, arming clinicians with a real-time data tool, organizer, and streamlined form of communications.
“The establishment of FAMIA marks a watershed moment for the profession of health informatics,” said Douglas B. Fridsma, MD, PhD, FACP, FACMI, AMIA President and CEO. “This credential is the new hallmark of applied informatics professionals. Professionals who brandish FAMIA signal to patients, employers, and colleagues that they are steeped in evidence-based practice and engaged with a community of life-long learners who apply the latest advances in informatics to improve health and health care.”
About TrekIT Health
TrekIT was formed to create a commercial software platform for both large institutional health systems and individual clinicians looking for a better way to manage their workflow based on the Carelign technology platform developed by Subha Airan-Javia and colleagues at Penn Medicine. Product design was born out of a necessity to improve clinician experience, present data in a way that reduces cognitive overload, and to improve the handoff process, while simultaneously reducing medical errors and making the EHR more user friendly. Developed under Penn Medicine as Carelign, TrekIT was formed to bring this clinician focused platform to the wider market and is currently deployed at leading health systems like Corzer-Keystone and Penn Medicine. Focused on creating technology that makes clinicians more efficient and happy, TrekIT Health is currently raising its seed round of funding to scale the business model.
