In this episode, Alfredo & Elaine are joined by Dr. Leah Houston. Dr. Houston practiced emergency medicine across the US for nearly 10 years before becoming an entrepreneur in the physician autonomy and digital privacy space. As locum tenens physician she worked in 11 different health systems and 3 different states. She experienced multiple times first-hand what all physicians experience: the administrative burden of the onboarding and credentialing process. She also experienced misappropriation of her credentials and professional identity theft committed by one of the health systems she worked for. That experience led her to start HPEC, a digital identity and credential data wallet for practicing physicians. Main Street Matters is part of the Salem Podcast Network - new episodes debut every Wednesday & Friday. For more information visit
