Fort Wayne, IN – August 9, 2010 – Bruce Lisanti, a leader in the business technology community, has been named Chief Executive Officer and President of Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE), a healthcare information technology company. MIE offers advanced web-based products that simplify the automation of medical records in physician practices and clinics, and integrate with consumer health platforms to improve the management and sharing of medical records.
For the past 15 years, Mr. Lisanti has been a principal at several successful high technology companies. As a technology executive with extensive experience in marketing, channel development, M&A and strategic planning, he has helped build several companies from early stage development to over $500 million in revenue. Prior to these achievements, Mr. Lisanti worked for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and at General Electric Company (GE) where he was instrumental in growing the Computer Services Division from start-up to over $1.2 billion of revenue.
“With the pending changes in the US healthcare system and with meaningful use criteria now finalized under the HITECH Act's electronic health records (EHR) incentive program, there is an unprecedented opportunity for growth and expansion in the healthcare IT industry,” said Mr. Lisanti. “Electronic health records can enable physicians, hospitals, labs and patients to work together more easily. When combined with fully functional personal health records (PHR), electronic communication and access to information can substantially reduce the overall costs of the healthcare system. As one of the only fully integrated, web-based EHR systems available today, MIE has an enormous opportunity to become a leader in this space.”
“MIE has already demonstrated an impressive ability to promote the broad adoption of this technology on a regional scale,” Lisanti continued. “The MIE Health Information Exchange is currently utilized by over 90 percent of the physicians in Northeast Indiana with 55 percent of these doctors using the WebChart EHR system from MIE. Our goal is to take this model nationally, positioning MIE as a leader in healthcare IT.”
“While many EHR vendors are scrambling to meet the new meaningful use standards, MIE’s WebChart EHR Now product has been specifically designed to meet the meaningful use criteria,” said Lisanti. “Our web-based implementation process provides great flexibility, allowing physicians to tailor the system to their practice, rather than requiring them to alter the way they practice medicine, a common complaint in the industry.”
“We are also very well positioned in the corporate environment due to our experience with Fortune 500 companies such as Google who operate on-site employee health clinics,” said Lisanti. “As one of the proven industry leaders in the enterprise health arena, we see a huge opportunity here as companies look to improve the health care provided to their employees while lowering costs.”
Mr. Lisanti’s new role is effective immediately. Company founder, Doug Horner, remains with MIE as Chief Technology Officer and Chairman of the Board. “I could not be more pleased that Bruce has joined our team as CEO and I look forward to concentrating on further product innovation,” said Doug Horner. “For the past 15 years, I have been stretched between the development of our technology and building the company. Bruce is the ideal person to drive the company for growth.”
