What We’re Grateful for at iSalus

If you can believe it, November is already here.  What does that mean?  The holidays have officially started and if you’ve not already planned your Thanksgiving meal you will be soon.  In past years iSalus has shared a general message of thankfulness for our partners and the never-ending devotion you put forth towards bettering the lives of your patients.  We’re still extremely thankful for that.  However, this year we’ve decided to take an internal look at the things we feel grateful for.

Each member of the Executive Management Team at iSalus was asked to share a message of what they’re thankful for.  As their responses began to trickle in, a familiar theme became clear.  We are thankful for our team and the common mission we strive to fulfill.  We are thankful for our partners and want to continue to help them in any way we can.  We are thankful for our patients and the trust they give us as we do our best to directly impact their health outcomes.  Finally, we are thankful for the opportunity to serve.  Here are their messages:

“I’m thankful for the opportunity iSalus has been given to make a true impact on the healthcare industry not only by helping doctors deliver a higher quality of care, but also by helping patients become better caregivers for themselves.  I get to work with extraordinary people every day that are here for the same reason, and willing to do whatever it takes to innovate and meet the needs of our partners.  I’m fortunate to be able to spend time with healthcare providers that give their lives to improve the lives of their patients.  In addition to a happy and healthy family, I count myself blessed to work with such remarkable people.”

Michael Hall, CEO

“I’m thankful to have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with our partners. This past year has been very rewarding working in the Urology sector and having the opportunity to meet so many passionate people that strive to make their patients’ lives better. The experience has been humbling, as well as refreshing to work with such dynamic, professional people that make a difference. I am also, thankful that I am part of an AWESOME team at iSalus that shares the same vision and passion as the partners we work with.”

Kraig Vondran, Chief Strategy Officer

“I am thankful for the inspiration I receive on a daily basis from the group of people I work with.  Creating a marketing campaign is easy when you have real-life experiences to draw from.  Working with people that have integrity and truly believe in going above and beyond makes my day-to-day joyful because I don’t have to find ways to coerce the truth or invent stories that aren’t real.  We really do want to make it easier for our partners to improve the lives of their patients.  We really are pioneering patient engagement so that healthcare becomes personal again.  It’s a marketing dream to work with passionate people who are always willing to go above and beyond, to do whatever it takes to find a solution because they know in their heart it exists. It’s inspiring.  It’s a blessing.”

Renae Rossow, Chief Marketing Officer


“I am thankful to work alongside an incredible iSalus Management Team and Staff!  Each and every day, these team members show up to work with an unrelenting passion to improve our technology, provide world class customer service, and add tremendous value to the lives of thousands of physicians and patients alike.  Specifically, in 2018, I am thankful for our entire Healthwatch staff.  This team, led by Beth Mennel, delivers incredible care to more than 4,000 patients on a monthly basis and has grown from 9 to 24 employees in the past year!  They are helping to improve patient health outcomes and have made our entire organization better in the process.”

Pat McDonald, Chief Financial Officer

“Healthcare Technology is notorious for being clunky, slow, and cumbersome.  Generally speaking, the environment is not conducive to effective patient care.  However, over the last 10 years, I have had the opportunity to work with people that are passionate about fixing this problem – both technology experts and healthcare providers. It is this collaboration, this willingness to reverse the tide, that I am so thankful for.  Providers that are seeing our solution for the first time are literally thanking us for finally building something that will help both them and their patients.  It makes the hard work truly worth it.”

Blake Head, Vice President of Development

“I am thankful for the opportunity to support and build relationships with individuals/companies with an everchanging top notch product.  This past year, I have been able to work hand in hand with many of the top physicians, specifically in Urology, to improve patient care and provider efficiency. None of this would have been possible without the most hard-working implementation team and I am so grateful for each one of them. They continue to push me and each other every single day, only striving for the best. Lastly, I am thankful for the entire iSalus Family (employees and partners).”

Adam Kaiser, Director of Operations

As you can see, we at iSalus feel extremely fortunate for our team, and the healthcare providers we partner with.  We do not take for granted the opportunity we’ve been given to work with each of you.  As the holiday season begins in full force, we want all of you to know how thankful we are.  We look forward to our continued partnership as we pioneer patient engagement so that healthcare becomes personal again.
