Providence’s Digital Innovation Group is adding two Seattle entrepreneurs and former colleagues to lead its newest incubated health tech startup, an “access optimization platform” called DexCare.
Derek Streat is joining as CEO and Sean O’Connor will be chief commercial officer. Streat previously co-founded C-SATS, a Seattle startup that uses technology to grade surgeons and was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 2018. O’Connor was the company’s chief revenue officer for four years.
Providence initially started up DexCare in 2016 to help with digital patient acquisition for its same-day care business, Providence Express Care Virtual. The software platform helps navigate patients to the most appropriate care setting and integrates with existing systems.
DexCare has seen a 30X increase in patient visit volume during COVID-19 as care shifts online. It is also now being used with other care venues at Providence and
