Joanna Geisinger serves as Chief Executive Officer at TORq Interface, a company she founded in July 2016.
Before founding TORq, Joanna spent three years as a medical device representative for Smith & Nephew, and three in surgical sales at Zimmer Biomet. In early 2016, when she originated the idea for TORq, Joanna left sales and committed to a Two-Year MBA at the Babson College F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business. In May 2017, TORq won the Babson Business Plan competition. In 2017 and 2018, TORq was championed by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (2017) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (2018) as a finalist in MassChallenge HealthTech. Joanna was also named one of MedTech Boston’s 40 under 40 Healthcare Innovators from Boston and beyond.
Joanna is passionate about entrepreneurship, research, and she is a staunch supporter of mobile health. Her passion stems from her first-hand experience with supply-chain management issues in healthcare and her belief that supply-chain costs can be reduced.
Joanna continues to lead the company on its mission to revolutionize communication between hospitals and their vendors and to repurpose savings for enhanced patient care. As of now, TORq’s software has been successfully integrated in ten hospitals due to leveraging of the major electronic health record systems (Epic, Meditech and Cerner). The company’s next focus is on strategic partnership with leading device companies. After further expansion, Joanna plans to build off TORq’s schedule-sharing feature to incorporate image-sharing and other data exchange techniques for increased communication and decreased waste.
