Phelps brings over 20 years of industry experience, working with health systems in sales and marketing leadership roles.

“I’m inspired by Braid’s vision of universal access to care and expertise,” said Phelps. “Our solutions are a clean break from legacy imaging and AI solutions with fragmented workflows, often constrained by cloud dependency and outdated architecture.
