Shahid’s proven track record, unique vision and expansive network, will not only help guide the company’s business strategy and product development but also advance Hybrent’s reputation for constantly raising the bar in supply chain visibility.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Hybrent, Inc, a Chicago-based company that helps hospitals improve how they manage and control the procurement of medical supplies that are delivered to their internal customers announced that Shahid Shah, former CTO of Cardinal Health’s CTS Unit (now CareFusion) has taken a seat on the Hybrent Board of Directors. Mr. Shah brings extensive experience in developing and bringing revolutionary innovations to market and is an award-winning enterprise architect that specializes in digital health and supply chain automation.
At a time when company momentum is rapidly accelerating, Mr. Shah will be contributing to Hybrent during their growth. “We are building a powerhouse team, and Shahid is a key thought leader in healthcare IT. His uncanny ability to see beyond the curve as well as key insights into how supply chain will be the next big area for technological disruption in healthcare are going to be infinitely valuable as we continue to grow Hybrent,” said Navneet Gosal, CTO and co-founder at Hybrent.
The way in which hospital supply chains operate in order for patients to receive products for care is quite complex. “Everyone’s chasing Meaningful Use and EHR money but as soon as the incentive money dries up they’ll realize the supply chain automation is a key area of concern for patient satisfaction and cost containment,” said Shah. Frontline clinicians treating patients spend at least 19% of their day searching for items and are frustrated with how to navigate through their current Materials Management Inventory Systems. This problem has been a silent killer in terms of efficiency in delivery of care and impacts the patient experience.
Asked why he’s joining the board, Shah said “hospitals have been ignoring supply chain issues because they used to live in a fee for service world and could pass on the costs of inefficiencies to insurance companies but as they move into a collaborative and outcomes driven reimbursement environment they’ll need Hybrent. I wanted to join the firm at the forefront of integrating supply chain informatics with traditional health IT systems.”
Adding the talent of Mr. Shah’s quality, positions Hybrent for strategic scaling as they address this rampant problem. Having been at the forefront in driving both large organizations and startups, innovation has always come easy to Mr. Shah. While holding a variety of roles in executive leadership positions, he’s led the architecture, design & development for several complex healthcare systems as well as groundbreaking innovations and holds 9 patents.
Ken Tighe, CEO at Hybrent said, “Shahid’s proven track record, unique vision and expansive network, will not only help guide the company’s business strategy and product development but also advance Hybrent’s reputation for constantly raising the bar in supply chain visibility.”
