BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Censinet, the leading provider of healthcare IT risk solutions, today announced that Cormac Miller has joined the Company as President and Chief Commercial Officer. Miller will be responsible for growing the company’s healthcare provider and supplier footprint, along with developing and managing industry partnerships and new markets. He will support Censinet CEO and Founder Ed Gaudet in executing the company’s vision and strategy for its recently-announced RiskOps platform.
“Cormac Miller brings a wealth of experience in healthcare, SaaS products, technology, operations, and analytics,” said Ed Gaudet, CEO and Founder of Censinet, Inc. “He is uniquely qualified to help Censinet scale via our RiskOps growth strategy and our third-party risk management partnerships. I look forward to working with him as we continue our mission to take risk out of healthcare.”
The escalation of cybersecurity threats like ransomware and data breaches, exacerbated by the ongoing impact of COVID-19, has significantly enlarged the risk surface area for healthcare providers and the vendors who serve them. Traditional models for managing risk have proven insufficient for ensuring uninterrupted patient care in this new environment. Censinet was founded and backed by healthcare leaders to transform how risk is managed across the industry by developing a two-sided network that creates a more scalable, continuous monitoring approach to third-party risk.
"I’m honored to be joining the Censinet team at this important juncture in healthcare cybersecurity,” explained Cormac Miller. “The number of ransomware incidents in 2020 demonstrates the need for a different-in-kind approach for providers and vendors, and I believe that the Censinet RiskOps platform is a key pillar in driving a sustained immune response across the industry that drives out risk in healthcare.”
Before joining Censinet, Miller was Executive Vice President and General Manager at Optum, a UnitedHealth Group subsidiary, a diversified healthcare company dedicated to helping people live healthier lives and helping make the health system work better for everyone. Miller was accountable for a $230M data and analytics software business encompassing the payer and provider markets within Optum Analytics.
Prior to Optum, Miller spent 21 years at the Advisory Board Company, a publicly-traded best practices and technology firm serving healthcare and higher education, where he was an executive officer. He held several senior executive leadership positions across his career focused on growth and innovation, including chief product officer, executive vice president of strategy and corporate development, and head of new product development. He was also general manager of the healthcare analytics business unit, where he led a global workforce of over 1,200 team members. The Advisory Board Company was acquired by Optum in 2017.
