BeClose.com (Vienna, VA) was founded in 2009 as a spin off of MicroStrategy, Inc. and is an industry leader in Remote Patient Monitoring.

As Director of Consumer Health Initiatives for the MedStar Institute for Innovation, Pete is especially focused on making patient access more convenient and friction-free. A major area of interest is cloud-platforms that can tie into the EMR, to drive new system revenue, reduce costs, improve outcomes and extend access. Another of Pete’s interest areas is in screening patients using evidence-based questionnaires, especially on the web and mobile devices.
