CureMD has lost a visionary leader and the world has lost a wonderful human being.

His vision for how technology will be used and experienced around the world is exactly what CureMD needs as the company enters the next chapter of expanded product innovation and growth,” said Dr. Aizid Hashmat.
In his 18 years at CureMD, Bilal Hashmat has held a variety of leadership positions that successfully drove innovation and record growth. Under his leadership, CureMD became the only all-in-one Cloud EHR and a global leader in SMART Cloud EHR technology. Under his leadership CureMD also completed major acquisitions, to accelerate the expansion of its platform. Most recently he served as Chief Information Officer and a member of the Board of Directors, helping to drive CureMD’s overall expansion strategy. Bilal has played a critical role in the development of a number of new technologies, and has enhanced the company’s R&D and operational capabilities.
“CureMD’s focus on product and technology development has helped to establish it as a leader in the EHR industry. I look forward to continue working with our executive team and employees in driving growth for our company and the entire healthcare IT ecosystem as it transitions to collaborative care delivery and beyond. Our customers will continue to receive the highest level of services as we move forward,” said Bilal Hashmat.
