Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) January 9, 2008
Healthcare software and services company Cielo MedSolutions announces its Chief Medical Officer, Donald E. Nease, Jr. MD, has been named to Vital Magazines' 2008 List of The Best Doctors in Metro Detroit (http://www.vitalmichigan.com/bestdoctors/index.php?spec=Family%20Medicine). To compile the list, Vital Magazine partnered with the highly-respected Best Doctors Inc., which surveyed more than 35,000 physicians asking whom they would choose to treat themselves or their families.
As a family physician researcher at the University of Michigan Health System in the Department of Family Medicine, Dr. Nease was instrumental in developing the foundation technology on which Cielo MedSolutions' first product - Cielo Clinic™ - is based. His research has been funded by such prestigious institutions as the National Institutes of Health.
"Dr. Nease has unparalleled commitment to innovating in the use of technology with the goal of affecting an overall improvement in primary care. We are privileged to have a physician and thought leader of Don's stature on our leadership team, " said James D. Price, Chairman and cofounder of Cielo MedSolutions. "The entire Cielo team extends congratulations to Don on this accomplishment."
Cielo Clinic, the company's flagship web-based application, helps primary care physicians to deliver efficient, high-quality care for all patients through point-of-care prompts and reminders of services due. Currently in use in clinical settings ranging from the ambulatory care clinics of large health systems to private medical practices and rural hospitals, Cielo Clinic helps providers dramatically improve their performance with respect to the screening, prevention and management of chronic diseases.
