SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Central Logic, which recently launched the first web-based technology to operationalize care coordination – Central Logic Patient Connect – has enhanced its Executive Advisory Board by adding John O’Shea, MD, a public policy expert.
Central Logic is the healthcare industry’s leading provider of innovative software solutions that offer a comprehensive “end to end” suite of solutions to capture key patient information from inside and outside the hospital’s four walls. The executive advisory board was formed in 2016 to bring together industry leaders to help guide the company into the future and now includes experts in public policy, transfer services, patient safety, public health and entrepreneurialism.
“John’s extensive and impactful career has resulted in policies and practices that have led to significant progress in the healthcare industry, savings for providers and improved patient care,” said Barry Chaiken, MD, executive advisory board chair. “His deep insight on a host of issues has shaped today’s healthcare industry in areas including physician payment reform, emergency medicine reform, health information technology and medical liability among others. It is a privilege to have him join the board.”
O’Shea joins Chaiken and previously-announced Central Logic executive advisory board members including Memorial Hospital at Gulfport Chief Information Officer Gene Thomas, New York healthcare executive Abraham Warshaw, MD, and entrepreneur Dane DeLozier.
O’Shea is a general surgeon and fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington D.C. who was instrumental in writing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) which repealed the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) system of paying for physician services in Medicare.
His distinguished career includes serving as a senior health policy advisor to the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce and he has worked as a surgeon at the Montefiore Medical Center, as a Harvard fellow in health policy at the Heritage Foundation, and as an assistant professor of surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.
“Some of the most innovative minds in healthcare convene on our advisory board, so John’s particular expertise in public policy is a perfect addition,” said Jennifer Holmes, Central Logic board chair and CEO. “His distinctive experience in policy making as well as his perspective and thought leadership are among the most trusted in healthcare. We are proud and honored John will join us as Central Logic continues to lead in this rapidly evolving industry.”
O’Shea has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, California Healthline, The Daily Caller, American Medicine Today, Medpage Today, and The Michael DelGiono show.
He received a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard Kennedy School as well as a master’s degree in history and sociology of science from the University of Pennsylvania. O’Shea completed his surgical training at the New York Medical College in New York City.
