Founder Spotlight: Meet the Innovator Behind AxiomEHR

By AxiomEHR | March 20, 2024

Khalid Al-Maskari (center) is the founder and CEO of HiMS, but did you know that he’s also the developer of our EHR software?

Here’s what drove him to create AxiomEHR – in his own words:

“It has always been a passion of mine to transform the integrated health care experience using technology. I was CIO of a large integrated health care agency before starting HiMS in 2014. The organization provided services to individuals requiring general mental health and substance abuse issues, serious mental illness, physical health care and wellness services. The software that this company used at the time was not a good fit for what we needed from a functionality standpoint.

“I suppose it was a matter of necessity meeting invention, so I created the first version of AxiomEHR software to reduce administrative and clinical burdens and greatly improve patient assessment and treatment via clinical decision-making tools, patient care management, testing and diagnostics.

“Integrated health care is continuously challenged with delivering services to patients who are chronically ill and require complex care coordination efforts to manage their health. On top of that, the delivery of that care can be fragmented and impacted by poor communication between the care team. Compounding these challenges is the complex nature of being reimbursed correctly and quickly for services rendered.

“I felt that if I could address these major barriers by developing software that would enable our integrated health care agency to overcome these major obstacles, the results would be reflected in our ability to close care gaps, create new service lines and optimize performance.

“There’s always been a need for software that helps clinicians do their jobs better, faster and more effectively while maximizing opportunities for revenue. Our software not only assures long- term organizational sustainability but also employs cutting-edge technology tools such as AI to positively impact ROI by increasing patient volumes.”
