Chrissa McFarlane

Interview with Chrissa McFarlane, author of Future Women

What is your background briefly?

I have a background in Healthcare IT and management. I started out at a young age conducting microbiology research and fell in love with the healthcare industry.

Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?

Yes it is. After seeing the impact the healthcare industry has on individuals, I made it my life’s mission to have a positive impact on the lives of others by helping them live healthier and lead a satisfactory lifestyle.

1 min pitch for what you are doing now?

I am the Founder and CEO of Patientory. Patientory empowers users globally with actionable insights into healthcare data to improve overall health outcomes.

What inspired you to write this book?

I wrote this book because I believe it is really important that we emphasize and encourage minority female women in the Health Tech space. Future Women released last month  is now a #1 seller on Amazon.

What has been the response to it so far?

You can find reviews and feedback here:

What tips would you give to others who are inspired by your own progress and are looking to launch their own project?

The best thing to do is try. Trying is more important than success.

How is your own company going? What worked well over the last 12 months?

It is going well in building the necessary education and buy-in from subject matter experts to have adoption among the masses. Over the past 12 months, I have been fortunate to build a solid team that is pushing development and operations forward into the company’s next phase of existence.

With hindsight is there anything you would have done differently?

It is okay to exercise patience. I wish I exercised more patience in building my team.

How can people find out more about you personally & your work?

You can learn more about my book at I am current Choose ATL Influencer (yes the city) and a HIMSS Digital Influencer and Forbes Crypto Writer. You can follow me @chrissa.tanelia on twitter.

There is tremendous opportunity to be gained in the new digital economy. With an emphasis on diversity and inclusion at the center of this new economy, the time has come for minority women to be part of the building process!

All it takes is to pick up the hard-earned lessons from CEO and Founder of Patientory, Chrissa McFarlane in her latest book, FUTURE WOMEN – Minority Female Entrepreneurship and the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the Era of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency.

By the end of FUTURE WOMEN… you’ll be inspired to find your passion for contributions in this new digital landscape.
