The CareAlign leadership team is constantly working to unlock a better system for all - clinicians, healthcare organizations and patients.

Subha Airan-Javia, MD

Founder, CEO

As a hospitalist with Penn Medicine, Subha recognized the daily challenges clinicians faced due to inefficient workflows and poorly designed technology. Knowing there was a better way, Subha and her team created Carelign, a digital handoff solution. After Carelign revolutionized the handoff process at Penn, Subha knew the platform could bring the same value to other institutions – which is how TrekIT Health (now CareAlign) came to be. Subha now spends her days working with various clinicians and healthcare administrations to bring TrekIT to the wider market. As the Founder and CEO of CareAlign, Subha brings over a decade of research on the intersection of technology and clinical workflows, as well as experience as an Associate CMIO at Penn Medicine.
