Bob Thomas, Director, Consulting Operations, Digineer
“I recently worked with Rob Rossi to build a software product that evaluates home and hospice care providers using financial
and operational benchmarks. Rob wrote one of the best RFPs we have ever received. During development he was responsible for
ensuring the product met the needs of the industry and all deliverables from the RFP. Rob is exceptional at understanding
business needs and envisioning technology solutions that solve those needs. His application development experience made him
a great advocate for the project as he mitigated issues between the business sponsor and our development team. His deep
knowledge of the health care industry and technology, combined with his creative and communication skills helped ensure the
success of this project. I look forward to working with Rob in the future and happily recommend him.”

“Rob is one of those rare people you come across in life that is genuinely caring, has a high level of integrity and is a
naturally gifted creative thinker. He excels at whatever he puts his mind to and digs deep to find solutions. Rob is the
kind of person that if he doesn’t know how to do something, give him a minute and he’ll figure it out. His attitude and
outlook are inspiring and thankfully, contagious!”

worked with Rob at Acacia Living, Inc.
“Rob’s ability to synthesize complex technical and business requirements into workable solutions is nothing short of outstanding.
He knows his industry extremely well, and has a gift for creating solutions that non-technical end-consumers find to be fun and
engaging to use. He is also an excellent communicator and leader, with a strong work ethic. I can confidently say that he’ll
actively drive any project he is in charge of, to a successful delivery. Rob has a lot of great talent, and I wholeheartedly
recommend him to anyone looking to bring innovation and vision to their project.”

Dan Stanek, Executive Vice President, Retail Planning Associates
“Rob is a very rare combination of strategist, technologist and business leader all in the same person. His project work
involved not just developing strong technology solutions, but the marketing approach and business model, as well. He led a
practice for my company that incorporated a vision that we saw emerge years later due to his foresight. It is this kind of
vision that has made him a sought-after expert and speaker in the exploding field of leveraging technology tools to help
consumers age in place.”
To Whom It May Concern:
We contracted with Rob to help HCS evaluate and select a healthcare information system to support our homecare business.
HCS provides many services to the community including home healthcare, hospice, nutrition programs linked to “Meals-on-Wheels”,
adult daycare services, and a local senior transportation service. Our agency also received a grant to deploy a telemonitoring
HCS needed a methodology, scoring tools and a process to support the vendor selection process. Rob provided the tools and
support we needed to identify and select the best system for our diverse business needs. Following Rob’s methodology our
staff was able to complete our selection process within our defined budget and in a reasonable time frame. The scoring tools,
RFI, and comparison matrix provided the quantitative measures our team needed to stay on-track and clearly match our needs
with each product’s features. Rob’s coaching helped us ask questions that differentiated each solution.
Rob helped us save significant money during the contract phase and wrote policies and procedures to support aspects of HCS’
We were very pleased with consulting services Rob provided. The savings HCS received through Rob’s guidance and negotiating
suggestions eclipsed the consulting fees HCS paid for his services.
I heartily recommend Rob Rossi.

To Whom It May Concern:
AgeWell Home Care has had the pleasure of working with Mr. Rossi for over 2 years and recommend
him as an excellent healthcare technology consultant.
Mr. Rossi has helped AgeWell with a variety of technology solutions. For example, Mr. Rossi’s
directed his web development team build both the AgeWell Home Care and Housing Solutions web sites.
After Launching these sites he added important web tools and functionality. These tools enabled
our site visitors to subscribe to our mailing list, perform home care needs assessments, educated
site visitors on how to choose a care provider, and communicate their specific needs for senior housing.
To guide future enhancements, Mr. Rossi implemented Google Analytics across all of our sites to
report web traffic and site visitor information.
Mr. Rossi also created a secure, HIPAA compliant, Internet-based client portal that connects
the AgeWell care team with the client and family. Internally, he has implemented Internet based
video conferencing allowing our remote sites to attend meetings and perform online training
without requiring these employees to travel.
AgeWell manages client satisfaction through a customer survey solution Mr. Rossi built and implemented.
He has worked to improve integration between our telephony IVR system and our back-office
information system. As AgeWell continues to grow Mr. Rossi has identified two possible health
care information systems to evaluate for future needs.
As AgeWell continues to improve client care, Mr. Rossi helped shape our Life Care Management
program. His work with our internal team and vision for the eventual IT system implementation has
helped position AgeWell as a leader in senior care.
We heartily recommend Mr. Rossi as a health care technology consultant.
