HORSHAM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RightCare Solutions, Inc. has appointed seasoned sales and marketing professional Jeffrey Edgin to the role of Senior Vice President, Business Development. With broad experience in new product launches and channel development, Edgin’s sales expertise complements the company’s technical leadership. Edgin will draw on his distinguished career in health care IT sales to connect health care providers with RightCare’s solutions that empower hospitals to improve overall patient care.
Edgin, who spent nearly 30 years with Siemens Healthcare Information Technology, most recently as Regional Vice President and senior executive leader, knows both the challenges and the ultimate value in implementing new hospital workflow software – experience that will directly benefit new and existing RightCare customers. While at Siemens, he led national sales efforts and supported the implementation of progressive IT solutions at health systems across the country.
“High readmission rates, poor post-acute care experiences, and frequent emergency department visits are a scourge to both the patients and the health systems that serve them,” said Edgin. “Over the past 30 years, I’ve seen technology’s impact in creating measurable improvements to patient care. At RightCare, I’ll help connect more hospital administrators with tools to better understand the needs and risks of their patient population and ensure optimal care both before and after discharge to reduce readmissions.”
Edgin shares RightCare’s passion and vision to help improve patient outcomes by identifying patients’ needs and risk, matching and connecting them to the proper post-acute care, and engaging them post-discharge to ensure adherence to personal care plans using technology. In the veteran senior vice president, RightCare gains a respected leader and strategic business mind who will help RightCare expand its reach to more hospital systems. Edgin has proven his ability to develop new business and manage teams both large and small.
“Even more impressive than Jeff’s stellar sales record is his intrinsic drive – his passion for helping others has driven his success,” said Eric Heil, CEO of RightCare. “That falls right in line with our philosophy at RightCare, where innovation is fueled by compassion. Jeff will be instrumental as we grow our technology and business to target the needlessly high readmission rates at hospitals nationwide.”
Edgin earned an MBA from Drexel University, with a concentration in information technology, and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Penn State University.
