MHI student Kacee Roberson develops new healthcare tool to help patients

January 17, 2017 · 1 min read · By ASU Online
In May of 2015, Arizona State student Kacee Roberson visited the Winspread Opera House in Dallas to attend the Innovation Pitch Day competition hosted by her employer, Texas Health Resources.

She was one of three finalists to pitch her idea to a room full of influential business people, physicians, and even the mayor of Fort Worth; Betsy Price.

Kacee wanted to pitch her idea for a mobile app she titled InMotion. Her proposed app would give patients the ability to schedule and check-in for appointments online, view wait time information, and access a notification system that would help them maintain their health and attend their appointments on time.

Throughout her experiences as a student of ASU’s Master of Healthcare Innovation (MHI) program, Kacee learned the skills she needed to draft and refine her pitch — particularly through the IT Strategy in Healthcare course.

The judges widely praised the depth of Kacee’s project. She also earned praise for her involvement from the director of ASU’s Healthcare Innovation programs, who affirmed that professionals who want to impact healthcare don’t necessarily have to be practitioners in the field. The director also noted that Kacee’s work illustrates the sort of innovation that the MHI program expects from students.

The MHI program is offered online through the College of Nursing and Health Innovation for both practitioners and non-practitioners who are interested in furthering innovation in the field of healthcare. Learn more about Kacee here.
