The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators

Chris Holland, MD, PhD
Founder at the CodeRunner
Chris Holland, MD, PhDChris Holland built CodeRunner as a resident at Emory University with very little time and money. Inspired by the stress and chaos of participating in codes on a daily basis, Holland designed his own “easy-to-use, real time, interactive tool” to help doctors track time intervals and medication dosages, and document what was being done.

“Despite well-defined algorithms from the American Heart Association, no interactive or dynamic tools existed to help physicians and other healthcare professionals provide high quality care to these critically ill patients,” he says.

After CodeRunner was launched, the app accumulated 30,000 users. “Since that time, we have formed a company, raised capital, and completely rebuilt the software,” explains Holland. The platform now includes a comprehensive data warehouse and robust analytics platform, and can be tailored for enterprise customers including EMS organizations, hospitals, surgery centers, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities.

“CodeRunner started as a stand alone mobile application for ACLS and is now a comprehensive critical care platform that facilitates the delivery of high quality care to patients suffering from cardiac arrhythmias, cardiopulmonary arrest, and acute stroke,” Holland says of his product.

Holland first worked as a healthcare innovator at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts. Hired as a clinical research data manager, Holland was promoted to a job where he designed, developed, and maintained several clinical applications.

Currently, Holland is a part of the development team at ExamMed, a universal healthcare technology platform. He is also completing a Complex and Minimally Invasive Spine Fellowship at the University of Utah. He has joined Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine Associates in Charlotte, North Carolina and will start his practice there this summer.
