As Chief Innovation Officer for OdessaConnect, Greg is responsible for identifying strategies, business opportunities and new technologies to develop new capabilities, architectures, and business models to promote our healthcare solutions. He will also serve as Compliance Officer for HIPAA-related matters.
Why did you decide to join OdessaConnect?
“No one will argue that our healthcare system is in need of transformation. I believe that the greatest and most immediate impact one can have on their health is to improve the relationships they have with their caregivers; this includes doctors, specialists, family members, and pretty much anyone else that has been part of that person’s health journey. This is particularly true when you are talking about the health and wellbeing of our elderly population. That said, there are many good companies out there offering solutions to improve the health of our seniors, but Odessa is one that I feel is uniquely positioned with their technology and their culture to rise above the noise.”
My passion project is to leverage my knowledge and creativity to bring engaging experiences to those individuals that feel technology has left them behind.”Greg Kenny, Chief Innovation Officer
What is your particular interest in senior care?
“Comparatively speaking, elderly people in our country don’t receive the honor and respect that they do in other cultures. This has always bothered me as I believe a person’s last years should be their best years. For most people, this translates into spending more time with those that you love. As I transition into more of a role of a caregiver for my own parents, my passion project is to leverage my knowledge and creativity to bring engaging experiences to those individuals that feel technology has left them behind.”
