“I’ve spent countless hours with hospital leaders over the years, and they are constantly looking for ways automate the hundreds of manual tasks they have to perform daily and to do more with fewer resources,” said Pully. “Since surgery volumes went down and staff shortages went up due to COVID, it has become increasingly urgent for hospitals to find new efficiencies within one of their biggest sources of revenue – the operating room. The first-hand knowledge that Cam Sexton has as a former medical device representative is what makes this solution unique and powerful. I’m thrilled to be a part of RelayOne’s efforts to help their customers increase case volumes, minimize delays and cancellations while also supporting their quality and performance improvement initiatives.”
During his tenure as president of the NCHA, Pully led the association’s push to transform healthcare in North Carolina. He oversaw NCHA’s creation of the North Carolina Quality Center, which works with member hospitals to enhance hospital quality and patient safety. He also oversaw the development of the state’s Center for Affordable Health Care, which supports member hospitals and health systems in identifying opportunities to implement cost-reduction strategies to improve performance. Pully received the prestigious Ronald Levine Legacy Award by the NC Division of Public Health in 2012 for his significant, sustainable and positive improvements to health and quality of life in North Carolina.
According to RelayOne CEO Cam Sexton, “Bill’s unique perspective having helped health system leaders successfully navigate the many challenges they’ve faced over the past few decades is invaluable to us.
