Digital Health Company Helps To Improve Patient Care

Kimberlie Cerrone is a dealmaker and IP strategist by background, but currently she is the founder and CEO of Tiatros Inc., a San Francisco-based digital health company. Tiatros is the first market ready, medical grade solution that overcomes the information silos and ​logistical hurdles to treating chronic diseases by providing safe, reliable access to all of the fragmented stakeholders, information and workflows that must come together for efficient patient care

With Tiatros, doctors, nurses, patients, their families and non-medical caretakers are connected and have access to all the information they need; structured and unstructured health information is consolidated from every data source. The care team uses an extensive portfolio of collaborative communication, workflow and accountability tools they can access from anywhere with a data connection. Longitudinal relationships are built with patients and their families, and for the first time, the social context of patient care is integrated with medicine.

Cerrone earned a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry from the University of Illinois, a Master of Science degree in biochemical pharmacology from New York University and a Master of Business Administration from University of San Francisco. She is an active member of the California and USPTO bars.

What are the scope and responsibilities of your current role?

"I am the Chief Executive Officer of a digital health startup headquartered in San Francisco. Every day is different, but my most important job is to bring great people into Tiatros and make sure that they can build and bring to market a great software product that helps doctors improve patient outcomes and experiences, while lowering healthcare costs."

What is your favorite part of your daily duties?

"Everyday I get to work with a wonderful team of people - employees, customers and business partners - who work tirelessly to improve patient care for people with cancer, depression, PTSD, diabetes, eating disorders and other major chronic diseases."

Do you feel your education prepared you for your current role?

"Absolutely. I have graduate degrees in biochemical pharmacology, business and law, meaning that I speak the languages of everyone around the table."

Do you have any advice for people who desire to pursue a similar career?
"In the world of technology startups, done is better than perfect."
