Dr. Grasso has been leveraging his healthcare, technology, and business subject matter expertise to optimize value contribution, market differentiation, and competitive advantage within equitable constructs. These deliverables span healthcare technology startups to Fortune 100 companies within multiple C Suite and senior level consulting roles.

He has dedicated the past 5 years to expanding his existing technical prowess within the domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI), specifically as it relates to the global healthcare vertical. To that end, he has formulated a technology roadmap expansion of the existing healthcare vertical technology stack. This expansion will include the integration and deployment of cloud-based applications leveraging Conversational Computing, Machine Learning, and Intelligent Robotic Process Automation into, what he has coined, AI Ecosystem Assets. Expected deliverables include disruptive healthcare delivery cost savings with significantly improved patient outcomes and satisfaction at scale within a multilingual omnichannel cloud-based ecosystem.

Despite the considerable hardships and limitations imposed by the COVID 19 Pandemic, Dr. Grasso expanded his deliverables within 3 concurrent roles. He was the Healthcare and Life Sciences Global Practice Lead for Amelia Inc., the world’s leading private AI company, completed a successful technology stack migration to once positioned to utilize AI as CTO for a rapidly expanding network of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in Chicago Southland, and treated patients as a multilingual physician within a VillageMD multispecialty clinic in the New York Tri-State area.

At the present time, he is delivering clinical care in New Jersey to the economically disadvantaged and medically underserved and is the Director of Social-Media & Strategy for Artificial Intelligence Surgery, the only peer reviewed surgical journal dedicated to “all things AI.”

In addition, he has been collaborating as a Research Professor with Dr. Marios Pattichis to extend his highly successful Image and Video Processing and Communications Lab (ivPCL) to now include the launch of a division dedicated to R&D on Medical and Surgical Audio, Images, and Video via the utilization of edge based supercomputing resources and the innovative utilization of AI Ecosystem Assets.
