In this role, Dr. Clipper will oversee clinical innovation, user experience, and development of new product features that create value for Wambi’s clients, nurse leaders and their teams. Dr. Clipper identified Wambi as a best in class solution making a significant impact on the lives of care providers, nurse leaders, and ultimately, patients. “I was attracted to Wambi’s approach of improving the patient experience by directly empowering the clinical teams that care for them. I also truly believe in the motivational influence of competition and gamification, both of which set Wambi apart in a crowded health IT landscape,” says Dr. Clipper.
At its core, Wambi delivers an employee engagement and recognition platform powered by the voices of patients and their families. The system enables patients to express gratitude for those healthcare professionals who tended to them during the time of their care and leverages this data to drive engagement, reduce turnover, and improve the patient experience.
Dr. Clipper, a former Chief Nursing Officer, has spent her career focused on innovation in the nursing profession. In her most recent role as Vice President of Innovation at the American Nursing Association (ANA), Dr. Clipper mobilized nurses to think like innovators. “Nurses know what tools they need. They are well-equipped to identify what technologies do not currently exist but, if created and adopted, could bring positive change to the nursing field,” she remarks. “It’s hard to find reliable and effective ways to recognize your staff. Wambi solves that problem.”
As a thought leader and sought-after speaker on nursing innovation, Dr. Clipper will aim to demonstrate the power of real-time patient feedback and recognition to both domestic and international communities of healthcare leaders. Wambi CEO Rebecca Metter explains, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Bonnie join the Wambi family. With her extensive background in clinical innovation, Bonnie brings a deep knowledge and important perspective that will further delight our clients and increase awareness in the healthcare industry.”
Wambi delivers an employee engagement and recognition platform informed by real-time patient and family feedback. Through its gamified digital platform, Wambi creates a real-time feedback loop between patients and healthcare workers. This arms individual employees with their own performance data, fueling meaningful recognition while promoting autonomy and inspiring behavioral change. With Wambi, hospitals and health systems have demonstrated improved employee engagement, decreased turnover and burnout, and elevated patient experience.

This Compassion Day, Wambi, LLC announces the launch of its affiliate Carepostcard, LLC, an innovative way to spread gratitude in the healthcare community. Carepostcard is a free, user-friendly tool for patients and healthcare professionals to write and share electronic postcards of appreciation and for prospective patients to identify compassionate providers in their area.
Wambi is dedicated to bringing compassion to the forefront of healthcare and offers a patient-driven employee recognition platform for healthcare organizations to achieve that mission. While working to improve patient satisfaction through engaging healthcare workers, members of Wambi’s leadership team realized that there was no effective way to publicly appreciate providers.
Alex Coren, Wambi Inventor and Co-founder, emphasizes the profound impact that gratitude, expressed and received, has on patient and caregiver experiences. “I view the world through a lens of compassion,” says Coren, of Miami, Florida. “Utilizing Wambi to drive cultural change, reduce caregiver turnover, and improve satisfaction is salient. However, in order to systemically effectuate change in healthcare, we needed to start a movement within our communities—the Compassionate Care Movement. Carepostcard is our vehicle to propel the Movement.”
Carepostcard’s mission is threefold: users are able to visit the site to write and share notes of gratitude to their treasured care providers; healthcare providers can receive notifications, as well as view, share, and promote their Carepostcards; and prospective patients are able to use the site’s Carefinder tool to search for compassionate providers in their area by reviewing Carepostcards written by other patients.
As Rebecca Metter, Wambi CEO explains, “Promoting compassionate care is part of everything we do. Through Carepostcard and the Movement, we will facilitate sharing gratitude as well as receiving it, making for happier providers and patients—and ultimately kinder care for all.”
Carepostcard, LLC, a Wambi affiliate, is an innovative and free digital platform that offers a public way to express gratitude for outstanding care providers. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Carepostcard drives compassionate care by enabling a seamless way for patients to thank their providers and prospective patients to search for compassionate providers in their area.

Coren adds, “It’s an honor to contribute to the powerful collective voice of the young entrepreneur.
