Roswell, GA (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
WellCentive, the industry leader in healthcare intelligence solutions, has added two new management team members. Kirk Elder has been named Chief Technology Officer, and Leo Cooper has joined as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Along with CEO Frank Murphy and co-founders Mason Beard and Paul D. Taylor, M.D., these professionals comprise a seasoned executive team focused on high-growth technology solutions.
WellCentive’s cloud-based tools leverage powerful technology to enable collaborative communities. By easily accessing trusted information from across the community, physicians gain the actionable insights they need to improve both clinical and financial outcomes. Healthcare organizations use WellCentive solutions to provide the insight into patient populations and physician performance that is required for performance-based and risk-based compensation models.
"There is a rapidly growing demand for WellCentive’s solutions, as healthcare providers and organizations seek better ways to manage their patient populations," said Murphy. "With the addition of Kirk and Leo, we have a team with the experience and passion to address the market’s demand. I couldn’t be more pleased with the group’s dynamic, and I am confident in our ability to achieve exponential growth and success in the marketplace.”
WellCentive’s management team leverages many years of combined experience in both healthcare and technology. The company was co-founded in 2005 by Taylor, a practicing internal medicine physician, and Beard, an occupational therapist and software designer. Murphy assumed the role of CEO in June 2011, bringing over 30 years of leadership expertise and a deep understanding of the complex world of healthcare software and services. With the goal of building a world-class team, Taylor, Murphy, and Beard worked to secure the best talent in the industry. With the addition of Cooper, a seasoned business development and marketing executive, and Elder, an innovator with expertise in both healthcare analytics and technology life-cycle management, the expanded team is ready to enter a new phase of growth.
Allen Moseley, General Partner with Noro-Moseley Partners and a member of WellCentive’s Board of Directors, said, “WellCentive was founded by two visionaries with deep experience in both healthcare and technology. As we’ve built the executive team, we have continued to attract the best minds from all corners of the industry. The collective strength of this team will empower WellCentive to deliver solutions that build collaborative communities and truly transform healthcare.”
