More Information

In 1999, when Girish Navani co-founded eClinicalWorks, a healthcare software company hosting patient records, he had a background in robotics but a curiosity about health care and a desire to develop something to help patients and physicians alike.

To do this, Navani created a company revolutionizing the medical records process, moving to a digital format.

To do this well, eClinicalWorks does everything in-house rather than reselling or retrofitting other products from other companies, powered by its more than 6,000 employees, 700 of whom are based in Central Massachusetts. The company reported more than $800 million in revenue in 2022.

Now, eClinicalWorks creates holistic technology solutions to address key pain points in the healthcare industry, including physician usability, physician burnout, and patient safety. Worldwide, more than 150,000 doctors and nurse practitioners and 1 million other medical professionals use eClinicalWorks software.

Striving to stay ahead, the company has been utilizing data science and artificial intelligence tools for years, including eClinicalWorks Scribe, which assists physicians in the documentation process with the goal of improved engagement with patients. To invest in its next steps, Navani led the company to a $110-million investment in Microsoft Azure to move its offerings to the public cloud.

How should professionals best use the power they wield? “With responsibility — or power — comes accountability. Every leader needs to use the power they’ve been given to help others succeed. Create a work culture that allows everyone to flourish. Create a collective where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

When it’s time to relax: While work is a fulfilling hobby for Navani, he plays cricket and fantasy football for fun.
