Engineer founder, doctor debuts health surgery app
Misty Marot and Dr. Summerpal Kahlon recently rolled out worx360, a work-as-a-service healthcare technology platform that optimizes clinical staffing for healthcare facilities at scale.
They said worx360 – an app on Apple – adds automation, standardization and efficiency to expensive, highly manual, traditional HR processes for staffing agencies.
Currently, worx360 is free to download.
Marot and Kahlon want to get as many clinicians and medical facilities as possible to sign up for beta testing.
Marot, CEO of worx360, a product of Medworx, designed and built worx360, along with Kahlon.
The two-sided matchmaking platform was created based on Kahlon’s healthcare information technology expertise, as well as Marot’s extensive experience in staffing, human resources and behavioral science.
Marot has more than ten years’ experience in recruitment and staffing, and currently owns and operates Novel Engineering, Medical Resource Solutions and Construction Resource Solutions.
Among her many awards and recognition for business and leadership are GrowFL – Florida Companies to Watch; NASA Cube Quest Challenge GT1; Business Leader of the Year Honoree – Space Coast Business Magazine; Entrepreneur of the Year – Women Who Rock Awards – WeVenture and Florida Institute of Technology; Innovation Company of the Year – Space Coast Economic Development Commission; and Technology Executive of the Year – Bill Posey Certificate of Congressional Recognition.

“Worx360 will turn the medical employment crisis on its head,” Marot said. “It solves every problem presented by human-driven staffing companies. Worx360 is a matchmaking app that matches people and medical facilities on culture and values, as well as other key employment factors. It is 100% transparent and 100% automated. This level of employment modernization drives down employment costs by 50%. But what it really does is give people and facilities back control, giving them the freedom, flexibility and independence to drive their own future in our post-pandemic world.”
Marot is a Florida Tech alum with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in business administration. She sits on the Florida Tech College of Science and Engineering Advisory Board, US Rep. Bill Posey’s Small Business Advisory Board, Florida Tech Board of Fellows, United Way Space Coast Board of Directors and the Eau Gallie Rotary Club.
Kahlon said he envisioned the worx360 app based on his own experiences both as a healthcare executive and as a practitioner.
Kahlon’s background and experience includes developing innovative healthcare technologies with Fortune 100 companies, such as McKesson and Oracle.
Locally, he previously led and developed the Steward Health Care physician network in Brevard and Indian River counties.
Kahlon has served on a number of non-profit organizations and advisory boards around the country. He said he especially enjoys being involved in the local community on the boards of the Children’s Hunger Project, Florida Tech and the University of Central Florida.

“As both a manager and provider of healthcare, I have seen firsthand how inefficient and opaque the current system is to efficiently staff healthcare facilities,” Kahlon said. “Worx360 empowers both clinicians and employers to skip the middleman and use transparency to find the right fit.”
