As I reflect on my journey with Reveal HealthTech, I am filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Being the first technical person in the organization, I had the unique opportunity to help lay the foundation for our tech teams and shape the direction of our projects. My experience here has been nothing short of transformative, both professionally and personally.


Laying roots
When I first joined Reveal, they were venturing into the complex world of healthcare, specifically focusing on the business side. This was a challenging yet exhilarating experience as it required understanding the intricate balance between healthcare delivery and its operational aspects. 

Our goal was to streamline processes, enhance patient care, and ensure compliance with healthcare regulations. This endeavor led us to work on Electronic Health Records (EHRs) systems, a project that was both demanding and rewarding. The success of this project was a testament to our team’s ability to adapt and excel in diverse environments.

The range of use cases we tackled was vast and varied. From healthcare applications to cutting-edge Language Learning Models (LLMs) and applications built using low-code platforms, each project brought its unique set of challenges and learning opportunities. This diversity not only kept our work interesting but also ensured that we were constantly pushing the boundaries of what we could achieve with technology.


Embracing continuous learning
One of the most significant aspects of my role was working with experienced teams. The team members, each with around a decade of experience, brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise. This diversity in experience enriched our discussions, leading to innovative solutions and a collaborative work environment. It was inspiring to see how each member brought their unique perspective, contributing to a holistic approach to problem-solving.

Continuous learning has been the cornerstone of our team’s ethos. We have always encouraged exploring new technologies and methodologies, ensuring that we stay ahead of the curve. This culture of learning and growth has not only benefited our projects but has also been instrumental in my personal development. It has allowed me to expand my technical knowledge and gain insights into various aspects of technology and its applications.


Reflecting on my first year
Looking back, a pivotal moment that stands out is our first foray into the US market. This significant milestone set the tone for my entire tenure. The preparation for our first US client pitch was both rigorous and enlightening. We conducted mock pitches with Sanchit, our CEO, meticulously practicing and refining our presentation. This exercise was not just about perfecting our pitch; it was an invaluable learning experience that honed our skills in communication, strategy, and understanding client needs. It taught us to anticipate questions, think on our feet, and present our solutions compellingly. This experience was critical in my professional development, particularly as I navigated the complexities of the business side of healthcare and technology.


The journey ahead
Recently, I have been delving into the realm of product management. This new venture is an exciting progression to my skill set and aligns well with my career aspirations. The transition from a purely technical role to one that encompasses product management has been enlightening. The journey so far has allowed me to understand the nuances of product development, from ideation to execution. I’m certain that my learnings will be invaluable in guiding our projects and ensuring they align with business objectives and user needs.

My time at Reveal HealthTech has been a journey of growth, learning, and numerous achievements. The opportunity to work on a range of projects, from healthcare EHRs to LLM applications and low-code apps, has been incredibly fulfilling. Working with experienced teams, fostering a culture of continuous learning, and now transitioning into product management, has prepared me for the next chapter of my career. I am grateful for the experiences I have had and the skills I have developed, and I look forward to applying them in future endeavors.
