The San Diego upstart is particularly focused on supporting the smaller rural, community, and critical access hospitals with on-demand micro-courses on governance alongside real-time virtual access to subject matter experts. Jeffery came across from the consumer-facing retail marketplace three years ago to help build out the new education platform, and today, the company is advancing learning for dozens of hospitals across the nation. It enjoys strategic collaborations with the American Hospital Association, as well as several state hospital associations.
