SALT LAKE CITY, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, announced that healthcare IT veteran Anita Pramoda has joined the company's Board of Directors as an independent board member and a member of the Audit Committee.
Concurrently, Health Catalyst Executive Vice President and Co-Founder Steve Barlow has completed his service on the board after nearly five years of dedicated and effective participation in the governance of the company. Both changes are part of a planned evolution in the Board's membership to ensure its makeup and structure will serve the company effectively as it grows and scales.
Pramoda brings over 20 years' experience as a healthcare technology company chief financial officer, CEO and board director. She is currently the CEO and founder of Owned Outcomes, a software company that helps payors and providers with cognitive computing solutions to health improvement endeavors. Pramoda was a director of Allscripts from 2013 to April 2016, and served as CFO of Epic Systems from 2009 to 2012. She led Epic through a period of significant domestic market growth, its expansion into the governmental and international markets, and its launch into mobile health IT solutions.
"I am honored to join the Health Catalyst board of directors," said Pramoda. "As the industry moves toward a value-based system of payment based on improved health outcomes, I am looking forward to working with Health Catalyst's management team, which has built a significant track record of helping health systems to improve their clinical, financial and performance outcomes."
Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton commented, "Health Catalyst is thrilled to bring such a well-respected and experienced healthcare technology executive to our board of directors. Anita will prove to be a strategic asset given her experience as a CEO, CFO and board director of large private and public companies, and her unique knowledge of the healthcare technology industry."
Burton continued, "I would also like to thank Steve Barlow for his dedicated service to the Board beyond the typical four-year term. He will of course continue to serve on the company's senior leadership team, where he provides critical leadership to our professional services organization. With Anita's inclusion and Steve's departure, the Board's makeup is now optimally configured to provide effective and independent long-term governance."
Fraser Bullock, Chairman of Health Catalyst, added, "Anita's significant financial and board experience will provide valuable expertise to Health Catalyst's Board as the company executes on its strategic imperatives in 2016 and beyond. We look forward to benefiting from her vision and experience as a member of Health Catalyst's board."
Prior to Epic, Pramoda helped commercialize self-healing packaging technology into wholesale, retail, and military sectors at Ontech. Earlier in her career, she worked with companies in the technology and healthcare sectors on a variety of strategic advisory and financing assignments at UBS Investment Bank and served clients around the world in healthcare and life sciences at Arthur Andersen.
Anita holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and a MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
The Health Catalyst Board of Directors includes the following members in addition to Pramoda, Bullock and Burton: Penny Wheeler, MD, President and CEO of Allina Health; Michael Dixon, Partner at Sequoia Capital; Promod Haque, Senior Managing Partner of Norwest Venture Partners; Todd Cozzens, Managing Director of Leerink Capital; and John A.
