NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Former Santa Rosa Consulting and InfoPartners senior executive James “Butch” Baxter has joined healthcare IT software communications firm MEDarchon, officials announced today.
“Butch’s rich background in healthcare business development – particularly within the healthcare IT management and consulting space – adds a vital and exciting dimension to our team,” says Jim Sohr, MEDarchon board chairman. “We look forward to him leading our great bench of professionals and guiding our emerging company to the next level.”
Prior to joining MEDarchon, Baxter was Senior Vice President of Franklin, Tennessee-based Santa Rosa Consulting. In 2012, Santa Rosa acquired Nashville-based InfoPartners where Baxter had enjoyed a significant career in business development and strategic management relationships. In addition to information technology, Baxter’s deep experience in healthcare includes positions in the CRO and clinical lab spaces – with ClinTrials Research, Inc. and SmithKline Beecham Clinical Laboratories, respectively – and in the managed care sector with American Medical Plan.
“Since its founding by W. Baxter Webb in 2013, MEDarchon has attracted a first-rate team of bright minds focused on developing best-in-class software to improve patient safety and communication,” says Baxter. “Our team is driven by a desire to improve both the provider and patient experience by enhancing their communication and reducing hand-off inefficiencies.
“Bottom-line: We want to make the hospital experience a little less stressful for everyone.”
Webb, MEDarchon’s founder and a board member, will assume the Chief Strategy Officer role to continue developing, facilitating and driving key strategic initiatives.
