Arup Roy-Burman MD, Founder & CEO of Elemeno Health, a mobile-friendly just-in-time training and support solution for frontline healthcare teams. Elemeno has built a “playbook in your pocket” for nurses, which empowers them to enhance patient care and execute their day-to-day tasks more efficiently. The “playbook” includes easily digestible content that can be customized by individual hospital departments. Its use has been associated with increased nurse satisfaction and a decrease in turnover by up to 50%. Improved consistency of care has resulted in decreased medical errors and hospital-acquired conditions by up to 75%.

He is an Associate Professor at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, where he has served as ICU Medical Director, and Director of Transport & Access.
