Sanjay Patel

Founder and Chief Product Officer

Sanjay’s work and passion, which began over 20 years ago, combine two of his favorite things; problem-solving and connecting truly innovative technology solutions with rehab businesses, to improve the lives of the patients they serve.

Following completion of his studies  at City College of NY, he held management and consultative roles with Merrill Lynch, Merck Pharmaceuticals, Bristol Myers Squibb, Bank of America and Eli Lilly and other companies, in desktop and cloud application, search engine,  and security architecture design/build.

While consulting for a large physical therapy practice network in the northeast, he quickly recognized the need for an integrated EMR and practice management solution, and founded Practice Pro in 2000, embarking on a journey that would change an industry, a profession, and care delivery.

What drives him stems from a foundational understanding that technology, designed well, unifies people with a purpose; that the right technology, in the hands of practice owners and skilled therapists, can play a significant role in care delivery and positive outcomes.

As the Chief Product Officer at Practice Pro, his purpose and promise to our clients is simple: design and build solutions that minimize the complexities of the EMR to allow therapists to spend more hands-on time caring for their patients.   He believes that Enabling Better Care leads to better business, profitability, and growth — sustaining and strengthening the ability to deliver unmatched care to more patients and communities.

To that end, it is his life’s work to ensure that no matter who you are or how simple, advanced, or unique your practice needs, Practice Pro is your partner, committed to providing the right solutions for your success.

When not solving problems for our clients, Sanjay enjoys the competition of tennis and pickle ball, hiking, and spending time with his wife and two sons traveling.
