About Me

The Background

👋🏿 Originally from The Bronx, New York my name is Preston Perriott and I've been privileged enough to have spent the first few years of my career growing as a developer in the New England area.

Primarily focused on HIPAA regulated, medical devices and clinical trial development, my experiences at Johnson & Johnson and Merck have ingrained in me a passion for quality and a desire to improve the state of healthcare through technology.

Aside from tech, I've recently moved back to NYC, this time Brooklyn of all places, and spend a decent amount of time rambling about equity, FIRE methodologies, and curating spotify playlists, making sure every moment of my day has the right soundtrack. My other love is soccer, from watching my team , to playing with friends on the weekends, soccer has always been a staple in life.

Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't impart my desire to expand the role that technology plays in underprivileged communities. With the future of technology dependent on the developers we create today, we must stress the importance of educating our youth; and being the change we hope to see.

Worked on the ‘Universal Patient Index & Lens’ teams which directly interpreted client requests for extracting specific health data from a userbase, built in Golang. Extracting and mapping ICD, SnoMed, and CCI codes from a patient so that ailments and remedies were clear, is an example of a Lens for insurance purposes most closely related to Medicare/Medicaid systems. The underlying goal was to ingest external patient information to power an internal `Universal Patient Index` that would couple instances of a patient’s healthcare interactions into one singular universal patient.
