What industry does your company represent? IT Services for Healthcare and Medical Lab organizations.

What makes your company unique? The Rhodes Group is unique in several ways. We serve a niche market, within medical laboratories and assisting healthcare systems with specimen collection and diagnostics. Our combination of clinical health and lab knowledge, combined with the ability to apply cutting edge technology, allows us to bring tremendous value to our clients and the patient communities they serve. We develop our own solution sets and have patent-pending technology. As a For-Profit IT organization in the state of New Mexico, we offer the opportunity for IT professionals to apply their knowledge, skills and expertise to serve not only New Mexicans but others throughout the United States.

Describe where you see technology in year 2030. Technology in 2030 will be even more transparent and tactical for the typical end-user. In the healthcare environment, the combination of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, extensive cloud computing power and advances in medical science will make the detection of chronic disease markers, preventive monitoring and response to infection disease outbreaks much more effective. This ability to bring healthcare into wearables, implants, home and car will be a game changer.

How is your company adapting to the Coronavirus crisis? For the Rhodes Group, we have responded quickly to the increased demand for Rhodes Group expertise.  We have helped health and lab systems rapidly provision new testing instruments, scale to different testing locations and provide extensive data reporting to help decision makers.  These efforts have demonstrated the Rhodes Group commitment to serving our patient and provider communities during this critical time of need.  This focus is continuing as we work to develop new analytics and reporting.

Where does your team stand: Red, Green or Christmas? After astute observation of company lunches, I would say the Rhodes Group team leans to the green.
