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 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. After recognizing the need for such software at other institutions, TrekIT Health was formed to bring the platform to a wider market. 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.
