20 Year Healthcare Veteran to Champion Healthcare Technology with a Human Perspective
HOLYOKE, MA 2/4/2021 — As part of a renewed company focus on the impact technology has on workflow and process, national healthcare IT consultancy VertitechIT has appointed Joe Tuma of Naperville, Illinois as its new Vice President of Sales. Tuma has more than two decades of senior sales leadership experience with STRATEQHealth, Health Catalyst, MEDHOST, Allscripts, and McKesson Provider Technologies.
“Healthcare systems and medical practices are no longer looking at technology for technology’s sake,” says VertitechIT President Gregory Pellerin. They want to know how it can impact their workflow and allow their clinicians to focus on patients instead of their computer screens. Joe’s personal relationships with leading healthcare institutions across the country are built on that foundation.”
“My aim has always been on improving a doctor’s ability to deliver care by having technology work for them, and not the other way around,” says Tuma. VertitechIT’s focus on the human perspective has never been more important as healthcare is faced with unprecedented levels of physician burnout as a result of the pandemic. We need to remove the technology barriers and allow doctors and nurses to do what they do best; deliver care.”
VertitechIT is one of the leading HIMSS Analytics INFRAM consultants in the world and has developed a proprietary methodology for linking infrastructure technology investment to clinical outcomes. Tuma will lead the company sales team as it expands its presence across the United States and Canada. VertitechIT is part of a unique five-company healthcare consortium of technical, workflow and process, managed service, and software development consultancies. Those companies include Nectar Strategic Consulting, baytechIT, akiro, and Liberty Fox Technologies.
