Strategic hires support expansion in precision medicine & community connectivity
Tucson, AZ – January 12, 2015 — Sunquest Information Systems Inc. today announced the addition of three new leaders to the company’s executive team. These additions will support acquisitions and planned growth in precision medicine and community connectivity.
Sunquest’s parent company Roper Technologies’ recent acquisitions of Data Innovations, Atlas Medical and CliniSys Group will bring new capabilities to the Sunquest portfolio, improving laboratory connectivity with the diagnostic care community. Additionally, Sunquest is co-owner of a genetics information system, GeneInsight, as part of a strategic alliance with Partners HealthCare. The company believes these investments will better equip their clients to respond to reimbursement changes and market needs such as population health.
“The constantly evolving needs of our clients demand a partner that can be nimble and help them solve their most pressing business challenges,” said Matthew Hawkins, president of Sunquest. “Innovation in genetics and connectivity are key to positioning Sunquest as that partner. With the right technology, laboratories can enable precise and improved healthcare across the care community.”
New Sunquest executives include:
- Rob Atlas, founder of Atlas Medical and Sunquest’s senior vice president of strategic solutions – As a well-known and respected industry expert, he will work to expand Sunquest expertise outside of the hospital lab and further enhance connectivity to diagnostic care communities.
- Tom Arena, senior vice president of North American sales – Arena recently served as the chief growth officer for General Genetics and held leadership positions at hc1.com, Solstas Lab Partners and Accumen (formerly aLabs). His experience will guide Sunquest’s growth efforts and increase traction with the GeneInsight platform.
- Andrew Branski, Sunquest’s new vice president of finance – Branski will enable Sunquest to advance as a market-leading, global organization – built upon a foundation of financial rigor and discipline. Branski comes to Sunquest from GE Healthcare, where he led all commercial finance activities for one of their primary software divisions.
“As we move to further innovate and realize our mission of smarter healthcare and safer patients, we need the right leaders to ensure our success. We are confident that the experience and knowledge they each bring will be an invaluable addition to Sunquest and our clients,” said Hawkins.
