Curatess Leadership



Matt Hughes

President & Chief Executive Officer

My years of experience as a technology innovator and business executive in financial services and healthcare led me to join the Curatess team in 2016.  I am passionate about combining the best people, process, and technology to create systems with outstanding performance, efficient use of resources, and resilience.  Curatess is exciting, as I get to lead the organization to create a next generation care continuity platform that empowers forward thinking healthcare providers.  Previously I worked with Deloitte Consulting, and helped architect and build a next generation clearing and settlement system for a world class derivatives clearing house as well partner with a major healthcare provider to install an electronic medical record system nationally, and top national credit card company to perform a major card processing platform upgrade.

Tidbit: I simultaneously worked on my MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business while leading Options Clearing Corporation (OCC’s) Enterprise Architecture function. After graduation, in a strategic business role, I worked on OCC’s development of a new capital plan and implementation of a business controls program.

Interesting Note:  I love tough mental and physical challenges.  In the past, I ran 4 different marathons in the Midwest.  That passion gave way to more long distance motorcycle riding with my father and brothers.  Now, I spend most of my time chasing my young son and toddler identical twin daughters!


Paul Knight

Founder & SVP of Operations

My 20 years+ of healthcare and technology experience helps guide the strategic direction of our organization, our work and our goals of improving care coordination between Patients, Families, Care Settings and Providers. I have spent my entire career in Healthcare and have a passion for Healthcare Information Technology. I saw a gap in the Healthcare industry for a truly integrated telehealth platform, this is how Curatess was established.  My goal is to continue to develop advanced care coordination and clinical workflow to help improve the overall Healthcare people receive.

Fun Fact: I originally entered the Healthcare industry as a registered Occupational Therapist working in the acute and post-acute care settings, hand therapy was my specialty.  In early 2000’s I transitioned to technology and in 2006, graduated from Benedictine University with my MBA.

In my very spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and mountain biking with friends.


Joe Viscomi

Chief Technology Officer

My software development, product engineering, and technical experience go back more than 20 years. I have been a technology innovator and entrepreneur for the past 10 years and most recently was the co-founder of Greplytix, Inc., Howler Apps, Inc., and Lambda Labs, LLC.  Spanning these startups I have focused on novel indoor positioning systems, realtime IOT message processing, and healthcare analytics. My academic background is in Machine Learning and Cryptography, most recently I studied Innovation and Business Management at Harvard while in the Advanced Study Program at MIT for Data Modeling and Data Mining.

I am passionate about solving complex interesting problems in simple, elegant, and useful ways. I was excited to work with the Curatess team and the opportunity to help them move from their MVP to an advanced integrated care management platform and telemedicine service. I think lots of new disruptions are coming to this space of healthcare and it is awesome to be part of the team that is leading the way.

Fun Facts: include my passion for education and helping children with learning disabilities, and I enjoy speaking engagements that focus on innovation and strategic planning. I am an avid fan and player of hockey and serve as a mentor for FIRST robotics. While I was at Greplytix I was awarded the “innovator of the year” in Graduate Medical Innovation from the Harvard Academy and Howler won the Reader’s Choice award for best showcase startup in Boston.
