She has more than 25 years of experience as a healthcare executive and entrepreneur, serving in leadership roles at companies including WebMD and Vanguard Health Chicago. With Ludi, Gail created DocTime Log, Ludi’s software that helps clients keep track of their complex contracts with the independent and employed physicians who work for them. Gail has been honored as a Female Healthcare IT Leader to Know by Becker’s Hospital Review in 2018 and 2019, and she’s a published author, blogger and speaker.

She’s also working to keep her employees informed about the facts of COVID-19 with weekly newsletter updates, and she’s adapting to changes within her own business as a result of the pandemic.
