When I co-founded KaiNexus, I was working as an ER doctor. I realized that everyone around me seemed to have these unbelievable ideas about how we can do things better, like improving the quality of our service, or increasing safety, or saving time and money. I tend to be one of those people that say “”What if we did it this way,” or “Wouldn’t it be better if we did it that way.” It drove me crazy that all of this potential seemed lost. We just couldn’t seem to get a handle on all of the ideas to make real, lasting change for the organization.
Technology can - and has - changed individual behavior in so many significant ways over the past ten to fifteen years. At KaiNexus, we’re utilizing technology to change the behaviors of organizations. KaiNexus promotes improvement, facilitates it, and even causes more improvement to happen with less effort than ever before.
Our goal is to help companies create a culture of continuous improvement. It’s our passion; it’s what makes us wake up every morning and work as hard as we do.
Greg graduated from Washington University in St Louis in 1997 with a BS in Biology. He attended Baylor College of Medicine from 1997 to 2001. From 2001 to 2004, he completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he then stayed on as faculty.
Starting in 2004, it was his observation and research of operational inefficiencies and unrealized continuous improvement opportunities that resulted in the founding of KaiNexus.
