Erik Carlson, FACHE, FHFMA, FACMPE, MBA
Co-founder & CEO
I have always taken a less traveled path in my life and career. This unique perspective allowed me to understand how various disciplines and industries leverage data. I’m incredibly passionate about using data and analytics at the right level of detail to provide value for our partners and clients. Our team’s curated insights help push projects forward with confidence and sound techniques.

I take a fearless approach to technology and data, with a strong personal drive to change the status quo. I aspire to become a true agent of positive change within the industry, a revolution only made possible through research, data integration, and multi-disciplinary collaboration.

Sr. Strategy and Finance Analyst
Over a twenty-five year career in healthcare, I’ve worn many hats; accountant, auditor, financial analyst, business intelligence, and most recently strategic planner. Each new adventure has added to the next, allowing me to find and develop a passion for analytics and especially for the visualization of the results. Being able to tell the story of an analysis, to convey useful information in an accessible way that can then aid in the decision making process is what really makes each day fun and more interesting than the last.
