BOSTON, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Medullan, a digital health consultancy focused on improving the healthcare experience through human centered solutions, announced today that it is rapidly expanding its award-winning workforce headquartered in Cambridge, MA. Coming on the heels of a 43 percent revenue growth in 2014, Medullan is thriving in a startup culture a decade after its founding. The consultancy credits its success to its development of a human-centered, Lean mindset that has transformed every aspect of the company, from program delivery to hiring and people management.  

Medullan, a company of nearly 100, was founded to address the pressing need of the healthcare industry to deliver better engagement and health outcomes. In 2014, Medullan diversified its operations, bringing on Timothy Smith as vice president of program management to expand the global delivery and technology practices, and Stu Heilsberg, Medullan Partner, to leverage his expertise in life sciences, product management and devices. Additionally, Medullan launched its product development incubator, LOOM, to identify and close technology gaps in the healthcare marketplace. Medullan continues its mission to be a part of the robust startup culture and academic synergy of the Boston area and expand operations in Washington, DC and abroad.

Throughout the years, Medullan has evolved its focus from pure technology strategy and architecture consulting to enterprise agile program management and solutions delivery. Building upon this foundation, Medullan recognized that Lean practices, which aim to mitigate risk under changing conditions, would be critical for the healthcare space. Medullan developed its own Lean methodology, which minimizes risk in a rapidly changing environment and maximizes investment and impact.

"A Lean approach isn't unique for most product innovators and it does create valuable quantitative insights, however, in order to truly gain insight on what people will do, you must get in front of humans," said founder and CEO Ahmed Albaiti. "To achieve this, Medullan incorporates a significant amount of qualitative research and healthcare specific measures within our lean process, which allows us to break down what will and won't work for the end user. This has enabled us to solve problems across a variety of clients across the healthcare ecosystem."

"Our Lean mindset is reflected in everything from our core values to the delivery of a solution for our clients," said Jonathan Chen, EVP of Medullan. "It has driven tremendous value to our clients, made us a more innovative company, and most importantly, a place where every individual is challenged to find meaning and purpose to their work."

This spring, the company was named to the Boston Business Journal's Pacesetters annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts for the fourth year running. Building on that momentum, Medullan executives and experts spoke at HIMSS15 in Chicago and at the UXPA Boston conference in May. Additionally, Julliette Ehlert, senior technology manager at Medullan, and her team, took first prize at this year's MIT Hacking Medicine Grand Hack.

Medullan continues to build off of their success in working with major companies in the healthcare and life sciences industries including Foundation Medicine, Mass General Hospital, Verizon and Aetna. They recently kicked off projects with Humana, CareCentrix, Anthem, LifeMap and Illumina.
