The objective of this initiative is best summarized by AMA CEO James L Madara, MD, "The collaborative effort of IHMI will help the health system learn how to collect, organize, and exchange patient-centered data in a common structure that captures what is most important for improving care and long-term wellness, and transform the data into a rich stream of accessible and actionable information."

The vision for PatientMD began in Dr. Pavlatos' early years of practice while he was pursuing his MBA from Kellogg's Graduate School of Business. Early in his practicing career, he witnessed the high costs, tremendous waste, inefficiency, difficulty in obtaining Patient data and improper coordination of care in the current healthcare delivery system. As he envisioned the need to transform the industry to one that is more competitive and Patient-Centered, he realized that a paper centered industry would not allow this transformation. Ten years ago, Dr. Pavlatos met his Co-Founder, COO/CTO and friend, Anirban Majumdar. As the industry began to convert to a digital industry with the adoption of Electronic Health Records and the development and maturation of mobile technology and cloud computing technology, PatientMD's vision of a Patient-Centered Value-Based Industry focused on moving healthcare to the world of Precision Medicine and Personalized Healthcare became a reality. The advancement of Genomics, IoT, Analytics and Artificial Intelligence continued to strengthen their ability to execute their vision. This led to the development of their Mobile Platform and Web App for information sharing and healthcare services. Dr. Pavlatos' and Mr. Majumdar's commitment to this vision is seen with the use of over $2 million of their own capital to develop a team of 35 to build their platform for delivery across the world.
