G.T. LaBorde, CEO of IllumiCare discusses recent data that reveals that for each additional specialist seen, patients will stay about one extra day in the hospital. With the national average for a hospital stay at 4.5 days, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, fragmentation of specialties in the inpatient setting may be fostering inefficiencies.
GT LaBorde is CEO of IllumiCare, bringing nearly 20 years of experience in information technology to drive sales, recruiting and growth efforts for the company. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University, where he completed his law degree and practiced as an attorney before co-founding his first medical technology company, MedMined.
GT is passionate about helping healthcare technology startups grow, currently serving as a consultant for Eastside Partners, a growth-equity investment firm in the Southeast. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for Hygia Health Services, a single-use medical device reprocessor that reduces healthcare costs and landfill waste for its client hospitals.
