A senior nurse with more than 20 years’ experience, Katy Cain joins Alcidion from East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, where she held a wide range of posts in clinical roles, most recently as a modern matron for the trust’s cardiology directorate.
Katy, who also actively supported the adoption of new technologies in her nursing positions, will maintain close relationships with clinicians in NHS hospitals, to ensure frontline requirements in the UK are proactively fed into Alcidion’s product roadmaps. She will also continue to cover shifts part-time as a nurse to support colleagues through the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
Commenting on her appointment, Katy said: “The modern technology that Alcidion is delivering to the NHS and the passion in the company for helping to improve patient care, turned my head. As a healthcare professional, I felt this was the first time I had seen technology that would make a big difference to clinicians and a tech company that really has clinicians at heart.”
