BOISE, Idaho – January 18, 2020 – Kno2®, the company that enables interoperability at scale, today announced that Therasa Bell, the company’s cofounder, president and chief technology officer, has been appointed the Health Information and Management Systems Society (“HIMSS”) Long Term Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) committee.
HIMSS is a non-profit, mission-based organization committed to using information and technology to ensure that every human, everywhere is able to realize their full health potential. The purposes of the Initiative are scientific, educational or otherwise focused on improving the delivery of care through healthcare information and management systems.
Combining her passion for healthcare and extensive technology expertise, Therasa Bell created Kno2 as market forces began to drive more effective, lighter-weight healthcare solutions. As President and Chief Technology Officer, Therasa defines the business vision for Kno2 and paves a clear path of execution for the staff. She is responsible for Kno2’s innovation, vision and engineering, and holds three patents for unstructured clinical content under the company.
“Kno2 purposely focused on developing and bringing to market an effective and affordable interoperability platform targeting post-acute providers—skilled nursing, assisted living, behavioral health, therapies and others who did not receive government incentives to implement electronic health records (EHRs) and were left behind in the transition to interoperable electronic exchange, said Therasa Bell. “I am passionate about bringing equity to the healthcare industry, so when the opportunity arose, volunteering for this committee was an easy decision.”
Bell is serving a two-year term as an appointed member of LTPAC Committee for HIMSS.
