Laudio Recognized in KLAS 2022 Emerging Solutions Top 20 Report

Meet the Team

We envision a world where every leader can achieve what today seems impossible

Real Engagement Creates Real Impact

Laudio is inspired by clinicians, healthcare experts, and technology innovators who believe that health systems can activate their own frontline managers and create “real engagement.” 

The results our customers are seeing are beyond our expectations – a platform that is truly impacting our clinician burnout problem in healthcare, and improving healthcare quality, safety, and patient satisfaction. At the same time, we’re saving health systems millions of dollars through workflow efficiency and reduction in staff turnover costs.

Welcome to Laudio. 
We’re excited about the value we’re delivering to health systems and the journey ahead. 

“Supporting frontline managers and enabling them to more meaningfully engage with their staff supports everything good and human and important on the frontlines of care.”

– DR. RUSS RICHMOND, MD  |  CEO

What I love about Laudio is its focus on addressing burnout across the entire team - not just those at the top. Outside of work, I love skiing with my family in Vermont and working out while listening to podcasts.

I love Laudio because it answers the critical question every front-line manager faces: who needs my attention today, right now? Beyond work, I spend as much of my time outside as I can hiking, snow and water skiing, and traveling with my wife, kids, and our Springer Spaniel Rosie.

What I love about Laudio is talking to our users and hearing from them how we fit into their leadership journey. Their feedback and ideas keep making us better. Outside Laudio, you'll find me walking or hiking with my family.
