The OPOS Team

Experience matters.


Justin Kromelow

Founder and CEO

Prior to founding OPOS, Justin Kromelow served as CEO of Health Education for Living with Pain (HELP). HELP was the largest chronic pain provider network in California and a pioneer in the development of telemedicine. During his 10 years at HELP, he transformed direct patient care into a functionally based telemedicine model, enabling rural areas to have access to specialist care. Through this pioneering work in telemedicine,  patients received interdisciplinary team treatment support when and where they needed it, rather than within the confines of scheduled medical office visits.  Prior to HELP, he founded several companies over two decades providing thought leadership, executive consulting, systems development and integration services spanning Healthcare and Life Sciences. He founded Phyxe, a knowledge analytics firm that developed predictive models of physician behavior and Digital Medical Sytems, where he served as Chief Technology Officer, developing an electronic medical record and secure distributed healthcare transaction platforms. A principal interest throughout his career has been the application of technology to transform healthcare.
