I met Scott when he contacted me to review his Telecardiology Company’s processes, customer service and quality of care. I was impressed with Scott’s passion for improving the care of patients by utilizing teleradiology and telecardiology. He was also passionate about improving heart donor organs through timely Echocardiograms read by skilled Echo Cardiologists. Scott is a life leader and recently completed his Lean Black Belt certification. He is a pleasure to work with and I would strongly recommend Scott for Healthcare Leadership positions.

Scott created a clinical service line for serial assessments of donor heart function for organ procurement that decreased LOPA’s case times, maximized organ yield and saved more lives. I know how hard it is in healthcare to come up with a new, better way of doing something and have that accepted as the new standard of care. Scott Lehman did that. Scott is a man of his word and he was fun to work with. I highly recommend Scott Lehman as an executive, as a team leader and as a person.

Scott’s leadership was the reason our cardiac CT teleradiology project was so successful.

He was persistent and didn’t give up easily, which was a great help in ensuring our project’s ultimate commencement and success.
