Kenny grew up on his family's acre farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where he learned the importance of hard work and giving back to the community. He started his first company at the age of 7, buying raising, and selling livestock, and today has owned and operated six companies. He left the farm to be a first-generation college student at Winthrop University where he became a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, made the President's List, and then went on to accelerate two Master's Degrees at the University of Delaware.
As a clinician, Kenny worked with over 1200 patients before stepping away from his childhood dream of going to medical school to found Patient Sortal because he saw the need to provide healthcare data management, care coordination, and continuity of care for underrepresented populations. Since then he has led the Patient Sortal team to impact the lives of others through innovative, high-quality, data-driven healthcare solutions.
"Patient Sortal started with a vision to help children diagnosed with chronic disease(s) transition from pediatric to adult care. After years of working with patients and their care teams, we have created innovative solutions to streamline several healthcare administrative processes. These solutions decrease the overwhelming burden put on patients, healthcare providers, and payers. These actions improve intake processes for new patients, eliminate duplicate healthcare costs, and ultimately improve quality of life.
We are happy to say that over the past couple of years, we have taken our innovative solutions to untouched markets that will enhance the lives of returning citizens and our communities. I cannot thank my team, my family, and our exceptional advisors and investors for the endless support as we continue forward!"
