Wilmington, MA (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Home health industry leader HealthWyse, LLC today announced that healthcare industry veteran Michael Bertrand has joined the company as Vice President of Development.
Bertrand will manage both the Engineering and Product Management teams for HealthWyse.
He comes to HealthWyse from PatientKeeper, where he managed 60 engineers and helped to push forward their clinical product and team over his 8 years there. During his tenure their CPOE product achieved 80% adoption by physicians against an industry standard 8%. Bertrand also held leadership roles in software development at McKesson, PHT Clinical Networks, Clinical Data Solutions and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
"HealthWyse is clearly pursuing a unique and compelling development path, with a laser focus on client viability in a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. I look forward to leveraging the very deep expertise of the Engineering and Product Management teams to build on a 14 year history of excellence and innovation."
Bertrand’s expertise in workflow systems and his knowledge of physician- and hospital-based settings is cited as a significant strength by HealthWyse CEO Robert Pahlavan: “Given the move toward an integrated healthcare system, home health and hospice agencies must be more attune to the needs of upstream referrers such as ACOs and hospitals. Mike’s experience in this area will help to shape our product development in a way that confers significant competitive advantage to our clients.”
