Solutionreach announced the addition of Dan Simenc as chief revenue officer to support the growth of SR Health and its role in improving patient engagement in hospitals and health systems across the country.

Since its founding in 2000, Solutionreach has been a leader in patient engagement. The company sent the first text message in healthcare and has continued to be an innovator in patient communications ever since. Today, Solutionreach facilitates more than two billion messages each year to more than 80 million unique patients.

In his new role as chief revenue officer, Simenc will focus on continuing the expansion of Solutionreach's 20 years of patient engagement leadership into hospitals, health systems, and other large enterprise healthcare organizations through the SR Health initiative. He will draw on his vast experience in interoperability, clinical and operation systems, and other process-oriented areas in enterprise healthcare. Simenc's leadership will ensure these organizations leverage innovative patient engagement tools, technology, and essential workflows that make them practical and effective while positively impacting the operational and clinical successes of the clients Solutionreach serves.

Simenc comes to Solutionreach from Lyniate, formerly Corepoint Health, which was ranked number one in KLAS for the past 11 years. While there, he served as the senior vice president of US sales, building business relationships and regularly exceeding goals that enabled the company to achieve business growth and a successful merger. Prior to that role, Simenc served in senior leadership roles with 3M Health Information Services, Picis, Eclipsys (now Allscripts), and McKesson.

“I am thrilled to be joining a company that is playing such a key role in the changing face of patient relationships and engagement,” said Simenc of his new position with Solutionreach. “Successful businesses have proven that meaningful and effective communication with their clients paves the way for long-term growth and success. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for healthcare engagement processes to change in lasting ways. We are already seeing unprecedented changes in the manner in which healthcare organizations engage with patients. Solutionreach, given our capabilities to scale and deliver meaningful workflow improvements, is at the forefront of innovation. We are making engagement work for providers and patients to support needed care in the most appropriate manner (on-site or via telehealth). I am passionate about positively impacting provider-to-patient interactions and feel that I will be doing the most important work I can be doing for the healthcare industry.”

SR Health by Solutionreach was launched in early 2020 to support an increased focus on patient engagement for hospitals, health systems, and enterprise healthcare organizations. Designed with enterprise healthcare providers in mind, the SR Health platform meets large organizations’ needs to control access and permissions for numerous departments and user roles. Administrators can create different roles to match functional teams (marketing, front desk, call center, etc.) and give users the appropriate levels of access. SR Health’s unique approach to patient engagement includes the ability for providers to create “flows” for a broad spectrum of patient interactions related to in-person and virtual visits. These flows meet patients’ and staff needs simultaneously by adhering to patient preferences for messaging channels (text, email, etc.) while saving time by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to efficiently handle routine interactions with patients more quickly.

“Things are changing so quickly in healthcare right now,” explains Josh Weiner, president and CEO of Solutionreach. “Our commitment is to deliver what healthcare providers need to engage with their patients in this new COVID-19 world. Dan’s experience and leadership is critical for us to partner with the health systems and hospitals that need practical patient engagement solutions now more than ever.”
