Founder @ CodeCatcher
Christopher L. Wixon, MD., is Founder of CodeCatcher, a medical application which organizes the world’s medical knowledge into a graph data model making it universally accessible and useful. Optimized for use on a handheld device, the tool un-tethers the provider from the desktop computer, facilitating data entry at the point of service and delivering both efficiency and enhanced user experience. Unlike systems that mimic paper chart-oriented electronic health records (EHR), the CodeCatcher system uses the medical condition as the foundation of our processes. The goals it has targeted include applications that are easily downloadable from the marketplace; seamless data communication between devices and systems; and minimizing distraction from attention to the patient. Dr. Wixon received his undergraduate cum laude and with Honors in physics and mathematics from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
