This month we are excited for you to get to know George Moustakelis, our Sr. Business Development Representative! Keep reading to learn more about George and his important role at Pieces.
Describe your role at Pieces
My role here at Pieces is to identify and connect with good-fit prospects that have a need or initiative around reducing excess length of stay, alleviating the pains associated with physician burnout, and reducing the manual burden of time-consuming chart reviews.
I work closely with my business development team to identify these good fit prospects for Pieces Predict and we do a lot of front-end research for each potential prospect to personalize our outreach and make a meaningful connection through outbound prospecting.
How long have you been with Pieces and what were you doing prior to joining?
I just completed my first month at Pieces – woohoo!!! Prior to working at Pieces I was working for a local marketing company, doing similar outreach that I am doing today. Prior to that, I was a lab technician for an IVF clinic and even before that I had a couple of jobs working on the provider side in administration at private practices.
How did you get into the health tech industry?
I’ve always been fascinated with healthcare and the sciences as a whole. I studied Biochemistry at The University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!) to gain a deep understanding of the body. Additionally, fitness, recreation, and health have always been important to me.
A story in which I think is cool: I interned at a Dermatologist’s Private Practice while studying at the university. It’s a small family business, one provider in the office. The doctor had her office in a medical building and across the hallway from her main office she had another office suite with three walls with shelves of what seemed to be an endless number of paper medical records.
I undertook a big project in which I converted paper charts into electronic health records (EHRs). I manually went through all the charts to identify which charts could be shredded, which needed to be scanned, and which needed to be saved according to HIPAA regulations. Thousands of charts…
It was a long and tedious process, yet it was very rewarding. I was able to help the doctor transform her patient records and also help her save thousands of dollars a month by terminating her lease of the other suite.
During my previous position at Bonafide, I prospected into a lot of health tech companies, as my interests heavily lied there and we were able to help a lot of great health tech companies with their lead generation efforts.
I feel as if I’ve brought my skill set full-circle here at Pieces!
What inspires you?
Helping others, friends, family, and colleagues. By focusing my positive energy on my circle of influence, I can be proactive in having a positive impact on others and myself.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The education aspect. While I am prospecting, I am doing a lot of front-end research on the companies and people I am reaching out to. It’s a lot of fun to read about the initiatives companies are taking to solve complex problems, as well as learning how companies celebrate their accolades, and exhibit/execute their values and mission.
Additionally, being with a company that is at the forefront of artificial intelligence and predictive modeling, I have a ton of really smart people on my team that have a wealth of knowledge. It’s fun to learn about the latest cutting edge technologies here at Pieces, as well as outside of our company.
What’s the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?
Find your niche. Your product or service cannot help everyone, but there is a plethora of people and/or companies that can benefit from your product or service. Focus on those people.
What is something you are looking forward to doing in your current role?
Creating meaningful relationships with professionals at health systems and helping them solve their operational challenges that ultimately impact patient outcomes. Helping people, help people.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’m a Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Scholar and am now on the scholarship committee, helping select our next scholarship winners!
