Breaking Barriers: Empowering Women in Healthcare Technology

In the rapidly evolving field of healthcare technology, the contribution of women cannot be understated, yet their representation, especially in leadership roles, remains a challenge.


Data from more than 400 health technology organizations highlighted by the National Library of Medicine reveal a stark reality: "Women are significantly underrepresented in senior leadership and that men and women experience the workplace differently.


This disparity underscores the need for a concerted effort to empower women within the sector, an initiative PaceMate is committed to. 


PaceMate's Commitment to Female Empowerment 


PaceMate, a pioneer in cardiac remote monitoring solutions, is not just advancing healthcare technology; we're also leading the charge in fostering an inclusive and equitable workplace. Our dedication to this cause was recognized with the 2023 Tampa Bay Times Top Workplace Award. This accolade is a testament to our innovative solutions and core values: work-life balance, supportive management, and strong ethical principles. 


In 2023 at HRX, Haley Chute, PaceMate's VP of Marketing led a thought-provoking discussion with Dr. Andrea Russo, MD, FACC, FHRS, from Cooper University Healthcare, Dr. Camille Fraizer-Mills, MD, MHS, from Duke University, and Noemi Ray, RN, PaceMate Co-Founder and VP of Product Operations.


The panel explores the profound influence of women in leadership roles, AI, crisis management, and mentorship within the dynamic intersection of technology and healthcare, furthering PaceMate's commitment to championing women in healthcare technology.
