The Rothman Index is at the forefront of predictive analytics in healthcare, and it is my goal to further the company’s success to help save lives.

Michael Rothman, PhD
We started PeraHealth to prevent another family from suffering from an avoidable death. But we also realized that we had discovered a way to actually view the physiology of disease progression. And that this could be a tool to significantly accelerate medical research.
Michael Rothman, PhD
Michael Rothman co-founded PeraHealth in 2005 with his brother Steven, following the avoidable death of their mother, Florence.
His career began at IBM’s General Technology Division, after he earned his PhD in quantum chemistry. At IBM he worked in optimization, mathematical modeling and data analysis; work that led to a doubling of memory chip yields for mainframes. Michael also spent time at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Labs, in the AI department, engaged in research in machine learning.
Michael is a natural interpreter of information. As a manager and executive consultant for the IBM Consulting group, his duties included translating mathematical results into effective business strategies for major banks and financial institutions. Later, as Senior Vice President for Strategic Information at First USA Bank, Michael established a database to better determine customer preferences.
In 2000, he founded Michael Rothman & Associates to focus on data analysis and product development through consulting, patent filing and joint ventures. Projects have included developing a system generating customized discharge forms for hospitals, helping determine cash flow and profitability for a pharmaceutical company’s newly introduced drugs, and pro bono work analyzing mortality data for a guide dog school.
Michael earned an ScB and ScM in Chemistry from Brown University, and went on to earn a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Michigan.
I was excited to join PeraHealth so that I could work with others who were passionate about improving the lives of patients and caregivers. At PeraHealth, we have the privilege of working with organizations focused on reducing mortality, complications of care, as well as readmissions, and, in turn, patients and families are thriving.

After spending 20 years in the analytics space, I understand how hard it is to develop meaningful metrics. The way the Rothman Index is able to boil down the complex amount of disparate data that describes a patient’s well-being into an easily understandable score is simply amazing.
