Mike Bertrand Named Senior Vice President
xG Health Solutions, a leading healthcare management and redesign company powered by Geisinger Health System’s proven methods, is pleased to announce that Mike Bertrand has been named Senior Vice President, EHR Application Development.
Bertrand has more than 20 years of experience in healthcare software development. As xG Health’s leader for technical design and development of EHR applications, Bertrand will develop effective, accessible solutions and products for healthcare providers.
Bertrand will collaborate with xG Health’s Marcy Stoots, DNP, RN-BC, General Manager of EHR Applications, who is responsible for product management and market planning, and Daniel A. Cooper, Chief Technology Officer, who oversees technical operations for product delivery and customer support.
Said Bertrand, “There are three factors that position xG Health as a leading provider of EHR applications and solutions: our ability to draw on the proven methods developed by Geisinger Health Systems; our team of experts, whose experience includes serving in leadership roles at institutions nationally recognized for innovation in health information technology; and the fact that we provide consulting services that facilitate changes in work flow. I’m excited to be a part of this dynamic team dedicated to helping providers meet the challenges of the new health care environment.”
