Personal & Professional Background
For more than 15 years, Ryan Sawyer has been supporting world class healthcare providers across the country to improve operations related to patient centered care. His drive to create innovative approaches to process improvement has led to the completion of successful projects at well-known medical facilities including Boston Children’s Hospital, UH Cleveland Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
In 2009, Sawyer launched Service Depot (now known as AdvoCor), one of the first rounding tools in the industry that enabled medical centers to easily quantify the work of their teams and collect critical patient data in a seamless manner.
According to Sawyer, “Software is often sold as a magic bullet to fix everything, but in reality, software is only as good as the workflows that support it. The HydraCor product, AdvoCor, is designed to focus not on just the bells and whistles, but the hospital’s team members and ensuring they are able to maximize the data they have to work better.”
He partners with a multitude of departments, organizations, and thought-leaders in the healthcare industry and provides consulting services in Patient Experience and Web-based Application Design.
Ryan is known for his ability to break down large scale initiatives into easily implementable actions, as well as supporting these initiatives with world class technology solutions. Sawyer’s goal is to align daily work flow with organizational culture and strategic goals by integrating new technologies within well-established programs. This approach enables clients to become more productive and at ease in complex healthcare environments.
Ryan lives in Windham, New Hampshire with his wife and three sons. In his spare time, he enjoys coaching his sons in hockey and soccer, playing rock and roll and keeping up with geek culture.
