Paul Alexander Clark is the Director of Healthcare Research at Digital Reasoning Systems and the CEO of his own company Curate Health. At Digital Reasoning Systems, Paul helps develop artificial intelligence technology that helps identify health problems, such as cancer, that health professionals might miss when focusing on more immediate issues, such as a concussion. Paul’s work as a healthcare professional was originally inspired by his own experience as a childhood patient recovering from a traumatic accident to work in health research and application to improve patient experience. But his career started because of his passion for Sim City and an ability to code.
Paul cultivated his own educational experience to create a focused career: he’s earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pittsburgh, a Master of Public Administration in Science and Technology Policy from George Mason University, a Master of Arts in Bioethics and Healthcare Policy from the Loyola University Chicago, and a Masters of Healthcare Administration from the University of North Carolina. He is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives, and he has written two books, two book chapters, over a dozen peer-reviewed original research articles and hundreds of conference presentations. Paul’s resume is extensive, but not nearly as big as his passion for patient support and bettering the healthcare system in the United States.
