Tom Langan appointed interim CEO, replacing Ryan Howard
San Francisco, CA – August 14, 2015 – Practice Fusion, the nation’s #1 cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) platform for doctors and patients, announced today that its Board of Directors has appointed Tom Langan, the current chief commercial officer, as interim CEO of the company, effective immediately. Former CEO, Ryan Howard, will assume the position of Chairman of the Board. The Board thanks Ryan for his leadership, vision and building a tremendous foundation for the company’s future.
As Practice Fusion continues its expansion, it is critical for the company to leverage the strength of its platform to accelerate the commercial growth of the business. To help Practice Fusion reach its full commercial potential, the Board has determined that a leadership transition was the best next step for the organization. To this goal, the company has recently added four new members to its leadership team: Matt Ackley as Chief Marketing Officer; Dorothy Gemmell as Senior Vice President, Life Science Practice and Strategic Partnerships; Tim Rauschenbach as Vice President, Customer Service and Support; and Dave Caldwell as Senior Vice President, Enterprise Solutions. Together with the existing leadership, Practice Fusion has a world-class management team to lead the company forward to its next stage of growth.
The Board is confident that during this time of transition the company is in good hands with Tom, who brings deep commercial expertise, strong track record of performance, and solid relationships in the health care industry. He joined Practice Fusion from Symphony Health Solutions, where he served as its chief commercial officer responsible for managing the growth of the health care data, analytics, and consulting businesses and also previously served as the chief commercial officer of MediMedia. Over the last year, Tom has been critical to driving the company’s vision of a connected health care ecosystem by bringing new opportunities for collaboration with key industry partners and clients, as well as launching and developing new products such as medication adherence, clinical decision support, real world evidence studies, life science marketing and enterprise solutions, and new population health management (PHM) programs in the areas of weight management, asthma, COPD, diabetes, and other chronic conditions.
