Timothy Washburn RN, BSN, MBAHCM

AAS in Nursing – Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing

MBAHCM – Western Governors University

Chief Clinical Officer for Electronic Caregiver.

RN with over 25 years of experience.


Past experience includes various Nursing roles including bedside staff nursing, varying levels of Nursing Leadership and provision of Project Leadership for Health Technology Implementation and integration within a large national healthcare system.

The overall aim of Electronic Caregiver is to deliver sustainable, proven, customer driven solutions that can support improved patient outcomes, improved communication between the care team members, improved provider satisfaction and the delivery of high value care at an affordable cost.


I chose to move to Electronic Caregiver from the clinical leadership environment due to a deep ceded personal belief that leveraging AI and health technology to effectively support aging in place as well assisting providers at both the point of care and the community health level is critical to effectively managing the ever-growing health care needs faced in the United States and throughout the world.I believe this cannot be achieved through the application of AI or technology alone, but instead, requires a targeted and intelligently designed system that leverages people, process and technology to support the provision of the right care at the right time and in the right place.
