Chris Macek

Founder and CEO at SystemOne

Chris is the founder and CEO of SystemOne as well as the principal developer of GxAlert. He has spent his career designing and developing technology solutions for public and private organizations. If there is such a thing as the "art" of system design, that is what he practices - where qualities like simplicity, elegance, and pleasurable are as important as efficient, secure, and reliable. In recent years, Chris has promoted the notion of "Diagnostic Accountability" by which the strength and success of a health system can be measured through the lens of the diagnostic network.
