Kyle Anderson is the founder of PHR Plus, he started this company to prevent medical errors like his grandma experienced. When Kyle was growing up he spent a lot of time with his Grandma Evelyn. She was a very vibrant and strong 83 year old that was proud of her independence. Evelyn had a known penicillin allergy, but when she went to see a new medical provider he prescribed her a medication that had penicillin. This made Evelyn very sick, it put her in the hospital and eventually led to her passing away. Evelyn had lived a long and fulfilling life, but she was taken too soon and this medication error left a void in the family’s life.
Years later Kyle had finished his bachelor’s degree, had run two successful business’s but still had a passion for medicine. He went to work as a medical scribe in an emergency department to gain medical experience. While working in the emergency department he found that so many patients had similar stories to his grandma Evelyn. Very frequently patients of all ages didn’t know their medical history, medication lists, allergies or other crucial information. This led to added stress for the patient, longer wait times, unnecessary tests, and even complications. That’s when it struck Kyle that his mission in life was to empower patients and help solve this problem of preventable medical errors. He founded PHR Plus to connect patients to all of their lifesaving medical information, and to connect patients to their care team.
