INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - January 16, 2014) -
iSALUS Healthcare, a privately held Electronic Health Records (EHR), Practice Management, and Medical Billing service provider, today announces a new appointment to its management team. Jason McDonald comes to iSALUS from Kareo, where he spent eight years as National Director of Sales, assisting business growth from 200 to 20,000 healthcare providers. McDonald draws upon 13 total years of experience in the healthcare field and will oversee all sales and marketing initiatives at iSALUS.
"Joining the leadership team at iSALUS Healthcare was a no-brainer. The OfficeEMR™ product is a refreshing departure from costly and expensive client-server EHRs that take six months to install, and is far more customizable and feature rich than other cloud-based EHRs. Since the EHR and Practice Management system reside in a single database with one login, it reduces the risk of financial loss due to claims trapped between two systems when a data interface ruptures. There is no need to toggle back and forth between systems to find time-sensitive, critical patient health information. Unfortunately, medical practices are learning the hard way that they need an EHR vendor that will customize their system to meet their workflow requirements, within a single login product, for clinical and financial data access. I feel lucky to have found such a technically advanced product offering backed by a great group of people," said Jason McDonald, CSO of iSALUS Healthcare.
Market surveys report high levels of physician unhappiness with rigid, expensive EHR programs, and industry experts predict 2014 to be a pivotal year for health IT. Providers continue to 'rip and replace' their medical software for solutions that better fit the clinical and financial aspects of their practice. With that, iSALUS is poised to meet industry demands for unsatisfied physicians with an EHR that delivers user happiness without sacrificing the robust power necessary to run a busy medical practice. McDonald will be laser focused on helping iSALUS grow the sales and marketing infrastructure by adding the right technology, people, and processes to deliver on this escalating healthcare provider demand. iSALUS believes McDonald is another example of their accelerating momentum toward reaching more physicians nationwide.
"We're thrilled Jason McDonald is joining the team," said Michael Hall, founder and CEO of iSALUS Healthcare. "Physicians are demanding more flexible and user friendly EHR programs, and Jason will increase our reach to assist providers with delivering better patient care, while optimizing the financial performance of their healthcare organization."
