MN Startup ClinicianNexus Goes Beta With CA Healthcare System


Local healthtech startup ClinicianNexus has started an enterprise beta test with Riverside University Health System in Riverside, CA.

The 10 clinic, one hospital, federally qualified healthcare system serves Riverside County, California with a surrounding population of approximately 2.5m people.

During the beta, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical students from across the U.S. are using ClinicianNexus’ software to match with Riverside University Health System’s elective rotations available at their clinical sites.

ClinicianNexus and Riverside University are starting 150 users, 120 of which are medical students, testing the following features:

  • affiliation agreement management
  • placement/rotation matching
  • clinical site on-boarding
  • tracking and reporting
  • student, preceptor, and coordinator profiles

The relationship was initiated via outbound email marketing, “hitting the hospital at the right place at the right time,” Cofounder and CEO Katrina Anderson says. “We heard it typically takes many months to get something like this going but we just hit it off and started in about 4 weeks. We want to make sure we’re building our system in a way that is designed for our users first and this is how we know to do that.”

The big five ‘teaching’ hospitals in Minnesota include the VA, U of M, Fairview, HCMC, and Regions Hospital — all of which are of interest to ClinicianNexus during beta and beyond.

Clinician Nexus was formed by Anderson, Tim Schottler, and Bob Springer based on first hand experience as former employees of HealthPartners, when and where the idea hit them.

It’s been a year now since they started on their own journey and are hosting a “May the 4th Be With You” celebratory get together this Thursday for founders.
