Let’s delve into the intercepts of the interview!

Kindly tell us the source of inspiration. What led you to venture into healthcare?

Growing up in upstate New York afforded me the unique opportunity to volunteer as a firefighter and EMT/Paramedic in the community in which I lived. The workload to study and train was immense and was performed in parallel to my schoolwork. As these experiences evolved during my teenage years, I developed a strong sense of dedication to helping others. This hard work laid the foundation for my lifelong work ethic and desire to deliver excellence in all that I do. I was able to see first-hand the importance of providing compassionate care to those in need and some cases to those I knew. These life-and death-experiences inspired me to pursue a healthcare career.

Brief us about yourself and shed some light on your journey towards becoming a part of Access Point Technologies EP.

Residing in Arizona, I find joy in my married life and take pride in being a father of four children, with another one expected to join our family in the fall. My wife, (a nurse practitioner with a doctorate) and I have chosen to integrate our work and personal lives, allowing us to thrive both professionally and as a family. With a background in the healthcare sector, including involvement in early-stage companies and the establishment of healthcare-related ventures, I have made noteworthy contributions to the industry.

Recognizing my commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring new possibilities in healthcare, APTEP sought my expertise in developing innovative solutions for physicians. Peers have acknowledged my leadership, recognizing my innovative problem-solving approach, entrepreneurial spirit and advocacy for healthcare policy reforms. APTEP’s owner recognized the potential in my achievements and forward-thinking vision, aligning with their exciting contributions to the field of electrophysiology.

What roles and operations do you play at Access Point Technologies EP daily? How do they contribute to delivering the type of service that clients need?

On a day-to-day basis, I participate in the refinement of our strategy for growth and innovation, as well as the exploration of technological innovations we may be able to develop internally and bring to market. This is an integrative process that includes calls and/or visits with physician thought leaders, as well as those inside the industry. I work not only on individual projects but as well those that include collaboration with our in-house teams to assure integration and success company wide. I also strive to include our sales team in the relative aspects of these processes, as they are an integral part of our continued success.

This collaborative approach assures that my vision to use research, end-user input and assistance and the most advanced technologies help us as a company to improve the physician and patient experience – while at the same time making the delivery of our technology more personalized.

Tell us about the variety of services and products that you are part of, at Access Point Technologies EP.

We are always looking for new opportunities to expand our presence and bring our products to more patients and physicians around the world. I am responsible for new product development, whether the idea is internally or externally conceived. I put together the information and ideas for new products, as well as the definition of specifications for our engineering staff, which in turn allows them to work their magic on the design and development front.

We are currently far along with the development of several new and novel catheters for the EP space, with an emphasis on the unmet needs of the EP physician. I am personally involved in research on the use of artificial intelligence in both electrophysiology and medicine, exploring ways that this technology can be used to improve diagnosis and treatment in the near, medium and long term.

Overall, we are optimistic about the future and are committed to building a strong, sustainable business that can deliver value to our customers and stakeholders.

What are some of the challenges you face when conducting operations and how do you turn them into opportunities for growth?

Our biggest challenge is penetration into any given market. As a small company, we are actively exploring new partnerships and collaborations that can help us achieve our growth objectives. We are also investing in new technologies and product development initiatives that we believe have the potential to drive significant growth and expand our product portfolio.

One of our priorities is focused on expanding our commercial presence in key markets around the world so that we can bring our products to more patients and physicians. Growth via collaboration is where we see our biggest opportunities and we continue to have success in these ventures.

What advice would you like to give to budding entrepreneurs and enthusiasts who desire to venture into the sector?

Look. Listen. Learn. Work hard. Make sure you do not lose focus on the thing that is most important in life: Family. Success in business starts at home.

How do you envision scaling your services and operations in 2023 and beyond?

We are committed to developing innovative products and technologies that can help improve patient outcomes. We are currently working on several new products and technologies that we believe have the potential to revolutionize the field of electrophysiology. We are also focused on expanding our commercial presence in key markets around the world so that we can bring our products to more patients and physicians.
