Device Events with Madris Tomes

While Carrie is away on a photo shoot John continues the show with another amazing interview with an even more amazing guest, Madris Tomes! Madris has really inspired us all with her work and company Device Events, which has even worked along side of Erin Brockovich. Madris talks to us about how she is trying to help out in Flint with the effects of the water crisis and even more so around the country by providing actionable device insight by utilizing publicly available FDA raw adverse event data and raw data from several other systems in a searchable form. This synthesized data can then be used to identify and highlight adverse event trends that could potentially lead to recalls and warnings.

Madris Tomes is a Healthcare IT expert and strategist with 18 years focusing on medical device data and policy expertise for medical device companies, the federal government, healthcare providers and payers. She has a highly effective blend of business and technical skills. Also a very strong understanding of how drug, combination product, and medical device data integrity is lessened by public policy, regulations and contractual constraints. Madris has managed cross-agency relationships and spear-headed initiatives for data sharing and health information exchange with FDA, CMS, Brookings Institute, Joint Commission and ONC.

Device Events was founded by Madris Tomes, July 2015.  Through her previous work experience with the FDA and several consulting organizations, the need for clean, intelligible data presented itself. Device Events is focused on the medical device domain and provider space emphasizing the use of various technologies to enable intelligent searching of large data sets.  A beta launch is planned for the summer of 2016.

In January, Heidi Bower joined Device Events as the COO to build the required infrastructure to successfully manage the business and serve its customers. The company plans to strategically expand its human resources over the next few months to establish operational routines, focus full-time on customer relationships and provide outstanding customer service.
