When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandated that all hospitals in the United States meet Price Transparency, I knew my next endeavor should be to make this a reality. We have designed a price transparency engine that will help hospitals meet the CMS price transparency requirements and also host data from all the hospitals.
With my venture ZeaHealth, I and my team have already initiated the change I want to bring with two remarkable Products- ZeaMed and ZeaTool.
My mission is to Make Healthcare Shoppable as Airline Tickets. I believe that our technology can not only reduce healthcare costs but improve patient lives.
I am highly passionate about graduate medical education which motivated me to initiate a brand new graduate medical education program at North Alabama Medical Center, Florence, AL.
I also created Co-Management Innovation Tool and ZeaHub- A value-based outcomes management system to lower healthcare costs and improve patient care quality, safety, and experience.
I consider Dr Chandra as a true professional and leader in operational improvements. He has led numerous projects in his role as Director of Operations. He is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity.
Dr Bondugula continues to be a resource I can turn to for information and rely on. He is intelligent, dedicated, demonstrates strong management and communication skills, handles responsibilities with ease and has the vision to manage multiple aspects that is ever changing in healthcare.
Chandra Bondugula served as Director of Operations and primary organizer for Internal Medicine residency Program at Eliza Coffee memorial Hospital. He is involved in a number of projects throughout the medical center most notably the Co-management group of Physicians.
He was primarily responsible for the initiation of our Blood Management Program focused on educating hospital staff on current evidence based guidelines for Blood product usage. This resulted in savings of $559,000 in 12 months.
Dr Chandra has chaired committees on antibiotic stewardship, critical care stewardship, CPOE implementation, and many more. Chandra is very amiable and well received throughout the medical center.
I have known Chandra for the past four and a half years as the Designated Institutional Official at NAMC. Chandra's leadership and managerial skills ensured that the right message was effectively relayed to the physician staff at the medical center and to get the initiative approved. Chandra played an integral role in preparing the institutional and program applications. Throughout, he has maintained a constant correspondence with ACGME and ensured that the program stayed on track, enabling me to focus on my work. Chandra's reliability is his biggest asset.
Dr Chandra has taken his leadership and entrepreneurial spirit to one of America's most critical aspect- healthcare cost and expenditure. I strongly believe ZeaMed will innovate the new healthcare delivery.
Chandra has been working on a groundbreaking concept called SmartHomeClinics, which will be the future of healthcare delivery. I can confidently state that he is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity.
I highly appreciate the passion he displays for Price Transparency and high quality of care at affordable prices. The cost of healthcare is now the most significant financial concern in this ever-changing reimbursement environment for health care facilities and physician practices. Keep up the great work.
“Everyone deserves to know the cost of healthcare before seeking care.”
Make high value and low cost care available to global citizens.
To make healthcare purchasing as simple as airline ticket purchasing.
To create more Graduate Medical Education programs and train more residents to become physicians and healthcare executives.
