            [post_excerpt] => In his final year of graduate school at Johns Hopkins, when Bauer’s grandmother was readmitted to the hospital for an avoidable CHF exacerbation, he thought to himself, “there must be a better way.” Leveraging his extensive background in healthcare, Jarrett set out to actualize his vision of an appealing solution to the nation-wide issue of hospital readmissions. The result was the birth of Health Recovery Solutions in 2011, when Jarrett and founding partners Rohan Udeshi and Dan Priece utilized innovative technology to create an engaging, completely cloud-based platform for patients and their families, which was also fully optimized for clinicians. From its humble beginnings with three guys in a one-bedroom NYC apartment, HRS has expanded to a Hoboken office with over 25 employees, servicing 60 agencies and 5,000 patients. HRS has become a market leader in remote patient monitoring and will continue to reinvent the latest and greatest solutions for years to come. Bauer, a frequent speaker on Fox News and Healthcare Financial Management Association, is often quoted as an industry expert.  He has been recognized as a business leader by CNN, Fox News, WSJ and TIME.

            [post_title] => Shawn Weston
            [post_excerpt] => Shawn is a UX/UI Designer for WorkWave, located at Bell Works in Holmdel. His primary focus is designing new features for — and improving the overall user experience of — PestPac, WorkWave’s industry-leading pest control software solution. Last year, as part of a five-person UX team, he helped launch the User-Centered Design Initiative (UCDI) at WorkWave. The UCDI’s mission is to advance the understanding and use of UX tools and methodologies throughout the company. UCDI workshops advocate best practices in conducting user and market research, synthesizing data, developing personas, ideating within a team environment and user testing. 

Shawn is a graduate of General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive in New York City and, previously, a UX consultant for startups such as Slate NYC, an on-demand housekeeping service, and Givz, a social giving platform. Informed by more than 15 years experience as an award-winning visual journalist, Shawn stresses not only the importance of asking the “who,” “what,” “when” and “where” before sketching begins, but, most importantly, the “why.”
