Ikenna’s decision to pursue a career in the healthcare industry is founded on the opportunity to leverage medicine as a tool for creating universally appreciated value. He is passionate about finding innovative ways to improve the efficiency, productivity, and outcome of the patient and provider experience. Having recently completed a Doctor of Medicine degree, Ikenna’s passion is informed by how much a healthcare provider’s performance can suffer under the wrong circumstances. And with that first-hand knowledge, he works with leadership and front-line staff to understand their process from various viewpoints, map their workflow, and design strategies that lead to measurable and sustainable outcomes. Before joining Blue Cottage, Ikenna was the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at PogoDoc, Inc., where he recently deployed a pilot program of freemium SaaS enterprise product that engaged 2,000 patients after 45 days. He was also an associate at Invest Detroit, operations analyst at Harris Hughes Hospital in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and he interned at Merck Pharmaceuticals. Ikenna earned Doctorate of Medicine and Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry degrees from University of Michigan.
