MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Amphion Medical Solutions, a leading provider of advanced transcription and coding solutions and services, announced today the appointment of Subbu Ravi to the new position of chief operating officer (COO). In this role, Ravi is responsible for Amphion’s overall strategic growth and will lead product development, sales and marketing, and IT.
“Subbu is an experienced and trusted leader in all areas of health IT, with a track record of driving innovation and creating sustainable businesses in both the healthcare and technology industries,” said Mike Cavill, Amphion’s founder and president. “His leadership will guide Amphion’s growth and ensure the company continues to deliver the innovative products and services that will drive our clients’ success.”
Ravi has held leadership positions in start-up, early growth and turnaround stages of such companies as Symphony Data Corporation (Zavata / Apollo Health Street), Strategic Health Data Corporation, Indiainfo.com, Rediff.com and Tata Interactive. Prior to joining Amphion, he was vice president of healthcare IT solutions and product development at Symphony Corporation and acting COO of Symphony Care-Population Health Management. Previously, Ravi was with J Walter Thompson’s Fulcrum media buying division. He has a Bachelor of Science in Applied Sciences and a Master of Business Administration from Bharathiar University in India.
Ravi notes there is a major convergence underway in the processes and technologies supporting various healthcare operations, including medical record management, revenue cycle, health information management (HIM), population management and finance. In particular, HIM owns more than 70 percent of patient information that remains untapped despite its potential to influence quality, risk and financial reporting and impact accountable care.
“The time has come for HIM to take center stage in helping hospitals and health systems become sustainable and profitable in the new world of Value-Based Purchasing,” said Ravi. “With its unique combination of technical competency, knowledge and proven business practices, Amphion is positioned to lead this convergence and deliver to our clients tangible financial value. I look forward to leading a great company to even greater heights.”
