MedSocket was created to improve efficiency and quality of patient care through advanced clinical decision support, information retrieval and knowledge management technologies. Being involved in patient care, Dr. Karl Kochendorfer, inventor of 1-Search and co-inventor of 1-CDS, identified that healthcare providers were constantly in need of quick access to information at the point of care. 1-CDS, the one click decision support tool, and 1-Search, a medical search engine, were created in an effort to alleviate this need. In 2012, Dr. Kochendorfer brought together the business and information science expertise of Matt Botkin and Jayne Williams to form MedSocket.


MBA from the University of Chicago. Matt's strong corporate and entrepreneurial career includes two startup businesses while increasing responsibility in his corporate positions. A senior leader with over 18 years of experience in multiple sales and operations management roles. Matt currently has an advisory role in an agriculture startup in Kigali, Rwanda.
