The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


Lara Sinicropi-Yao
Co-founder & Head of Product and Operations at PatientPing
Lara Sinicropi-YaoLara Sinicropi-Yao, co-founder and COO of PatientPing, is one of Boston’s brightest entrepreneurs. Fascinated by understanding why people do what they do and what makes them tick, Sinicropi-Yao found her calling in building products and companies from the ground up. “I want to achieve impact at scale,” she says.

Prior to PatientPing, Sinicropi-Yao cut her teeth in product and operations at notable health tech startups Ginger.io and Kyruus.

As health care shifts to hold providers accountable for the total cost and quality of care they provide to their population of patients, they’re challenged to manage what they can’t measure. As technology providers, PatientPing aims to provide low friction, high-yield solutions that enable providers to succeed.

“At PatientPing we’re building a national community of providers, connected through real time notifications about when and where their patients are receiving care,” explains Sinicropi-Yao of the service. “If there are two providers and they share a patient—whether they are part of the same health system or different health systems—we want those providers to be able to work together to ensure that the highest quality care is delivered to that patient.”

The notion that millions of patients will receive better coordinated care with PatientPing is what gets Sinicropi-Yao out of bed in the morning. Her recommendation to others thinking about starting a company? “Don’t do it if you don’t love it. Starting a company is the easy part, but building a business takes a lot of hard work. When hard work and passion align, great things can happen.”
