Ablack, a 17-year veteran of global legal technology, has held several senior leadership positions with LexisNexis in Canada, serving most recently as the VP of Content.  Throughout his career, he has led the development of major product initiatives to help attorneys improve their productivity and decision making, including launching practical guidance, and introducing the first daily online legal news service in Canada.  With almost two decades of analytics-driven legal tech experience, Anand provides Medchart the crucial industry experience needed to revolutionize the way personal injury and mass tort attorneys access and analyze the health information needed to advocate for their clients.  Anand will be responsible for securing strategic channel and product partnerships across North America to accelerate growth and enhance Medchart's value across its core customer segments.   

"Our target customers have up to now been accessing 300+ page medical records in extremely inefficient ways.  Many use fax machines and highlighters to acquire and search for the information crucial to their case," said Ablack. "What's exciting about Medchart is that we're taking a fractured process and significantly improving upon it through a fully digital workflow and direct electronic connections to the sources of health information.  On top of that we're using AI and machine learning to provide attorneys with insights that would otherwise take hours of work."

Medchart currently has 70 employees appointed to sales, marketing, engineering, customer service, and operations, and wants to double the team by the end of 2020.
