Curtis NormanPersonally Transformative Medical Experiences

“The birth of my little girl, Lucy, who was born three months early and weighing 1 lb. 3 oz. — led me from a career in technology to a path in health care. After spending five months in the hospital with my wife and daughter, I knew that I needed to help patients and families have a positive experience — just as we had.”

Improved Patient Experience

“As a health care leader, I want to improve patient experiences because life’s happiest and most difficult moments happen within the walls of a hospital.”

Health  Care Data

“​​I also want to work with health care data because it has the ability to tell powerful stories about patients and organizations, which can help leaders make informed decisions.”

Caring for Health Care Professionals

“And finally, I want to address the problem of burnout among health care professionals by ensuring that they are heard, engaged, and feel valued.”
