Halo Highlight: Bryan Beaver
Halo Highlight is a series of interviews showcasing our unique and talented team members. This week, we sat down with Director of Clinical Technology Bryan Beaver to learn more about his role, the company culture at Halo, and what he’d like to learn outside of the office.
Tell us a little bit about your role.
My role revolves around analyzing the development of different technologies and how they fit into our customers’ clinical space. I have the opportunity to work with every aspect of the company, which includes team members from Implementation, Sales, Customer Care, Product, and more. I essentially bridge two sides of an equation – technical and clinical – to make sure everything works together seamlessly.
How did you end up in your role at Halo?
While doing research at a pediatric hospital system, I was exposed to a healthcare software that documents medical records. I found myself developing interests in the more technical side of healthcare, which led me to help build an entire system for a hospital network. I heard about Halo through a few colleagues who described it as a young company in a fast-growing market space. I joined the company as an Implementation Specialist, but my role now gives me a more holistic view of what we do.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Halo?
There’s a sense of empowerment here. If you’re confident in your ideas, you’re encouraged to run with them and make it work. We’re not afraid of failure because if something doesn’t work out, we’ll work as a team to try different solutions.
How would you describe the company culture?
Everyone here knows we’re writing the rule book, and we’re doing a pretty good job at it. What our product does and the way we’re developing it is different from everyone else in the space. It’s fast-paced and continues to grow, but we’re still the same group of open-minded and supportive people. The environment at Halo is the epitome of an “open office” because it functions the way a truly collaborative space was supposed to operate. It’s a fun place to work that’s definitely aided by our team members.
What’s your theme song?
I’m a big fan of country music, but I’m not sure about making a song about crying over a dog dying or your truck breaking down as my theme song!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Hands down, Europe. The only place outside of the U.S. I’ve been to is St. Lucia. I’m a huge beer geek, so being able to see the history and culture behind it would be really cool.
If you could learn anything new, what would it be?
Along with being a beer geek, I’m also a big science nerd. I’d love to learn how to run a big production brewery. In addition to that, learning how to make music that people enjoy would be great! I play a little bit of guitar right now, but it would be nice to experience what it’s like playing in a band.
