Lissy Hu is the founder and CEO of Careport and came up with the concept while she was getting her MD and MBA at Harvard. She entered and won a Harvard business plan competition in 2012. That same year, she got additional funding, $3.8 million, through the Techstars Boston accelerator program, allowing her to launch CarePort in 2013. The company built out its software, which patients use to find a post-acute provider and hospitals use to track patient outcomes. In 2016, national healthcare IT company Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) acquired CarePort. CarePort’s software is now available both as a standalone product and integrated into Allscript’s platform, which is used by 1,000 hospitals and 20,000 post-acute care facilities. Lissy runs both the CarePort business unit and the larger Allscripts care coordination unit, which were rolled under the CarePort name this year.
