I caught up with Dr. Emma Fauss, co-founder & CEO of Medical Informatics Corp. (MIC), to talk about her her role at MIC, their business and it's relationship with Intel, and the amazing work both MIC and Intel have done in response to the COVID19 global pandemic to help hospitals cope with challenges related to the pandemic which most have never had to deal with till now.
Emma Fauss is an engineer, researcher and entrepreneur - she is the co-founder and CEO of Medical Informatics Corp. and a Rice Alliance and DFJ Mercury Venture Fellow.

She completed a BE degree in Chemical Engineering from The Cooper Union, her PhD from the University of Virginia in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and her MBA from Rice University with a concentration in healthcare.

Emma also consults with early-stage entrepreneurs within the Texas Medical Center, as well as Rice University on business strategies and, as an advisor with the MIT Enterprise Forum, consults on biotechnology, nanotechnology, and risk assessment.
Our conversation kicks off with some personal background and the journey which lead up to Emma co-founding MIC with her colleague Dr.Craig Rusin in 2010 and the decade since, as well as a peek into what a day in the life of Emma Fauss looks like today, the amazing journey by which Intel came into the picture and became your partner and lessons learned along the way.
We also discuss how something as simple as a series of phone calls by Intel’s Bryce Olson to hospitals asking, “What do you need” led to the Intel/MIC collaboration to put your technology into hospitals in record time and completely transform the Intensive Care Unit environment such that it is now literally saving lives.
Emma shares insights into what it took for MIC and Intel to put together and run and exciting called Scale to Serve Program designed to Rapidly Expand Remote ICUs to 100 US Hospitals - a programme developed to help hospitals rapidly install and scale MIC’s Sickbay™ platform.
The MIC Sickbay platform is designed to help hospitals rapidly expand intensive care unit (ICU) bed capacity and create more efficient care of the most critical patients while also reducing risk of COVID-19 exposure for critical care providers who are at a higher risk of exposure due to the nature of their work.
