Brily Innovations was founded in 2012 by Drs. Kelly Carter and Brian Dawson. They began working together as two ambitious Emergency Medicine Residents at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. They implemented and published their first project on documentation, billing and coding education for residents (see link). With similar interests in job type and location, they each settled their families in Abingdon, Virginia to work in the Emergency Department at Johnston Memorial Hospital.
Johnston Memorial Hospital and the entire Mountain States Health Alliance is committed to process improvement and is on its journey to a LEAN transformation. This patient-centered focus on eliminating waste and improving efficiency is the ideal environment for Kelly and Brian’s creativity to flourish. The support of the local corporate team has allowed them to develop and enhance their current and “in-the-works” projects.
