Employee Spotlight: Adam Rogow
1. What is your position at Clarify and what do you do?
I am a Principal Engineer on the development team here at Clarify. I have been working closely with our healthcare experts to translate real-world needs into a data model and a user experience that’s designed to transform and improve the ease at which healthcare professionals and patients can work towards a common goal.
2. What excites you most about Clarify?
I have always enjoyed working with talented and interesting people to create easy-to-use yet robust solutions that solve exciting, real-world problems. Working at Clarify allows me to do this for healthcare. I’m excited to be a part of something that will improve the lives of patients, doctors, and other healthcare professionals by building a platform that allows them to all work in tandem towards a shared goal of quality, streamlined workflow, and satisfying care – all at lower costs.
3. How did you hear about Clarify/How did you get here?
Before joining Clarify I spent 18 years as a Principal Engineer and Senior Director at Advent Software, working closely with our CTO and co-founder, Todd Gottula. I worked on a variety of financial accounting products, doing hands-on coding and managing large teams working on many different technical platforms. When Todd met Jean and decided to embark on this adventure, he gave me a call. Getting a chance to work with Todd again, building something totally new in healthcare, was not a hard decision to make.
4. What aspect of your role do you enjoy most?
I have been fortunate enough to be able to work on all areas of our offerings. I have always been a developer that enjoys keeping close to the heartbeat of the client and what their needs are. In my role, I am able to hear the clients needs and feedback first hand. This allows us to work together with our clinical transformation team to build a delightful experience for our users.
5. What project have you worked on here that you’re most proud of?
Working on Care Prism and seeing our first client using the tools for analytics felt great, but I must say that seeing our first patients using our guidance app and communicating with their professional care team has been the most rewarding to date. I’m sure there will be many more to come.
6. If you weren’t working at Clarify or in healthcare / technology in general, what would you be doing?
Prior to joining Clarify I took a year off and found so much joy being involved in my children’s school and our community. My wife, Tanya, is a fantastic chef and has done everything you can do in a restaurant. Merging our combined skills of business, technology, and a love for food to build something in our community would be nice.
7. What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I used to be the president of the San Francisco chapter of the National Adult Baseball Association.
8. What’s your favorite app?
Care Pilot of course.
9. Where is the coolest place you’ve traveled?
Cappadocia, Turkey. (Google Image Search for some amazing photos of this place!)
10. Salty or sweet?
11. Favorite book, movie, and musician/band?
If I must choose – Prince and David Bowie
