New CEO Signals Growth at Healthland
Healthland, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare information technology solutions to acute and post-acute care providers, today announced the appointment of healthcare industry veteran Chris Bauleke as Chief Executive Officer, effective July 8. Former CEO Angie Franks will serve as Healthland’s President, leading the company’s strategy and market development efforts.
“These are exciting times for Healthland, especially with market momentum from the Centriq EHR system and most recently the acquisition of American HealthTech,” said Ezra Perlman, chair of Healthland’s Board of Directors.
“Chris brings to Healthland a strong track record of operational and sales execution in complex environments and is very experienced integrating new acquisitions,” Perlman said.
Bauleke joins Healthland from McKesson, where he was most recently President of their RelayHealth Enterprise Intelligence business unit. He brings nearly 20 years of healthcare IT executive experience to the Healthland leadership team. A native of rural Waseca, Minn., Bauleke earned his bachelor’s degree at Hamline University and his MBA in Management at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.
“The American healthcare system is pushing providers to transform from a fee-for-service business model to a community health model. We will help providers make that leap, whether clinic, hospital or post-acute care,” Perlman said. “Healthland is at a great launching point for future growth to capitalize on these trends.”
Healthland is America’s largest provider of fully integrated solutions to rural community and critical access hospitals. Software and services from Healthland, including its electronic health record (EHR) solution, provide customers a central repository of patient information in all of their care settings, including hospital, clinic or extended care facility.
With the recent acquisition of American HealthTech, Healthland will significantly improve the continuum of healthcare in entire communities, where patients’ records will follow them regardless of care provider – clinics, hospitals, post-acute care facilities and extending to home care. Combined, Healthland – headquartered in Minneapolis with offices in its founding location of rural Glenwood, Minn. -- and American HealthTech – headquartered in Jackson Miss. with offices in Denver -- employ 450 and serve more than 3,500 clients.
