Nashville-based Satchel Health, a healthcare technology company facilitating innovation in healthcare accessibility through telemedicine solutions for post-acute care providers, announced the appointment of Lanson Hyde as chief executive officer last month. Hyde is a seasoned executive who brings decades of experience leading and growing companies in the healthcare space. Most recently he served as chief operating officer of the hospital division and president of the Ambulatory Surgery Center division at Surgical Development Partners.
Ryan Macy, founder of Satchel Health, has transitioned to chief product officer with the appointment of Hyde. He previously served as CEO since the company's inception in 2014. Macy was inspired to create Satchel after experiencing the devastation of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti where a lack of basic medical infrastructure prevented people from accessing care.
Today, Satchel Health builds intuitive software to expand clinical reach and provide intelligent insights on care delivery and operations. The care platform allows clinicians to examine patients remotely through live-streaming, two-way video and digitally connected biometric devices that provide real-time data and actionable insights on the patient's condition.
