MedicaSoft, LLC today announced it has appointed Mike O'Neill as Chief Executive Officer. O'Neill, an expert in the introduction of new technologies to care environments, joins MedicaSoft after three years with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), where he was Senior Advisor and member of the founding team.
MedicaSoft partners with healthcare providers to deploy advanced health information technology solutions - clinical systems, administrative applications, and electronic health records - to improve the quality and efficiency of care delivery.
"Hospitals, doctors and clinics often struggle to adapt information technology in order to achieve better results, lower costs and accurately document care, and many are recognizing that their first generation systems are not up to the task," said Mr. O'Neill. "MedicaSoft's great potential, and what drew me to this opportunity, is our ability to offer complete solutions as well as modular systems to help providers achieve truly meaningful outcomes from their health IT investment."
While at VA, O'Neill led programs to introduce technology innovations and business practices in healthcare and claims processing in areas such as telehealth and VA's Blue Button personal health record. He also spearheaded VA's open source electronic health records initiative and served on the board of directors of , the first open source foundation in healthcare.
"Many providers feel constrained by solutions that are difficult to tailor to their specific clinical and business needs," continued O'Neill. "We believe there is tremendous interest from providers of all sizes who are looking for alternative solutions that enhance their overall efficiency."
An exclusive value-added reseller of Info World software and services, MedicaSoft develops and customizes technology platforms for providers including more than 100 current care settings on two continents.
