He led teams developing precision medicine solutions in healthcare and life sciences through predictive analytics, machine learning, image analytics, and big data for genetic and oncology applications. Larkin has a track record of successfully bringing cognitive computing products for healthcare to market as well as scaling geographically distributed development teams.
"I joined Concord Technologies because I see a team that is poised to significantly improve the cost and efficacy of healthcare," said Chris Larkin, CTO at Concord. "I look forward to using my experience with machine learning and automation technologies to help providers and payers eliminate the manual tasks and decisions currently required to send patient documents to and from clinical and administrative systems."
