ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Capsule Technologies announced today that The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has named Capsule CEO Hemant Goel a CHIME Healthcare Hero for outstanding service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The honor is given to a member of CHIME or a CHIME Foundation firm, based on a nomination from a peer.
Capsule's leadership was essential in guiding the development of Capsule's Ventilated Patient Surveillance (VPS) workstation, which assists frontline providers in identifying patients in severe respiratory distress. By extending the reach of intensive care unit staff over the full range of critical care patients, the VPS workstation increases the likelihood of patient survival and reduces the burden on already stressed care providers.
A seasoned business executive with over 30 years of global experience and proven success in healthcare information technology, Goel assumed the role of chief executive at Capsule in early 2019. Under his leadership, Capsule successfully grew its medical device integration, monitoring and surveillance businesses across numerous hospitals and healthcare organizations, culminating in Philips' recently announced $635 million agreement to acquire Capsule.
"I would like to thank CHIME for this honor, and I accept the award on behalf of our entire Capsule team, which has worked diligently to help hospitals and clinicians in the fight against COVID-19," Goel said. "The pandemic has exerted extraordinary pressure on the global health system. Leading technology organizations such as Capsule responded to the crisis by establishing new, innovative approaches and advancing insight-driven, proactive care. Our Capsule VPS workstation came to fruition quickly through our work with Yale New Haven Health, the University of Miami Health System, Massachusetts General Hospital and other leading healthcare providers. I also would like to commend my industry peers for their remarkable accomplishments in responding to this most acute global public health emergency."
"We have seen extraordinary innovation and dedication from our CHIME members and CHIME Foundation partners during this difficult time," said Russell Branzell, president and CEO of CHIME. "Under their leadership, projects that previously would take months were done in weeks or even days. The digital healthcare solutions they have designed are transforming health and care in their communities and across the healthcare ecosystem."
