Jeff Robertson, CMPE – President and Founder
MedSafe, Inc is Jeff Robertson’s third healthcare effort in the last 20 years. He started his first company, Dynamic Medical Systems, Inc. in 1995. After a period of five years and 50 employees later, Dynamic had successfully become the largest therapy equipment provider in the Long Term Care industry for the state of California and one of the top three regional specialized DME companies in the country. Dynamic Medical Systems, Inc. was acquired by Invacare in September of 2011.
On the heels of his success with Dynamic Medical Systems, Inc., he set out to make his entry into healthcare informatics. He formed DyMedisys in November of 1998 as he saw tremendous opportunity in automating the charting process in physician clinics. With the help of his mentor, a PhD in Process Engineering from Stanford University, he began to see the vision of an efficient and effective Electronic Health Record and the role it could play in the outpatient physician’s office. It was under the guiding hand and vision of Dr. Koo that EHR became his focus for over 10 years as DyMedisys was at the forefront of the wave of adoption of the Electronic Medical Record in the outpatient setting.
In 2003 Jeff formed a Revenue Cycle Management Services Company that focuses on Physician Clinics that run e-MD’s Solution Series Software. The Revenue Cycle Management company provides expertise to Neurologists, Gastroenterologists, Surgery Centers, as well as Primary Care Physicians. Through all of these entrepreneurial ventures there has been three constants that have come together to fundamentally define each healthcare company: technology, relationships and distribution.
In 2008 as a special project, he was trained and certified as a safe patient handling consultant for inpatient/acute care hospital nurses and caregivers. For 5 years he consulted and provided overhead patient lifts for some of the largest Hospital construction projects in California. He assisted everything from Architectural assistance for ceiling placement to on the floor training for thousands of nurses throughout the state. He provided overhead lift solutions to Scripps Cardiovascular, Torrance Memorial Hospital, VA San Diego, and as far west as Guam Naval Hospital. It was this training and consulting of acute care nurses that laid the groundwork for the formation of MedSafe, Inc.
MedSafe, Inc is the culmination of more than 20 years in healthcare and the knowledge and experience gained from each opportunity. With his background in caregiver and nurse safety, it was a logical transition to patient safety and specifically fall prevention.
Jeff is a graduate of the University of Arizona with a degree in finance and a second-generation healthcare professional. He is certified in Safe Patient Handling and Fall Prevention and is board certified through ACMPE (American College of Medical Practice Executives)
