ST. PAUL, Minn., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Point of Care Decision Support (PCDS), announced that Jay Syverson has been named President of the company. Syverson comes to his role with 35+ years of experience with multiple healthcare solutions companies, cross-industry consulting firms, as well as business intelligence and customer relationship management software & services companies. In his role as President, Jay is responsible for the strategy and execution of PCDS growth, customer engagement, as well as overall product vision for the healthcare marketplace guiding key clinical decisions and transitions of treatment at the point of care.
Prior to joining PCDS, Jay held many senior-level positions including President of Achieve Healthcare, Senior Vice President for Optum Data Management, Senior Vice President at Interelate, Vice President of Healthcare Practices for Coherent, CIO and Vice President of Technology for Boundary Medical, and Vice President of professional services at CWC-Firepond.
Although these roles were extremely diverse, the opportunities had several points of continuity including high growth and business transformation. In these roles, Syverson has executed consolidation and simplification initiatives driving over $100,000,000 in annual labor and environment consolidation savings over a three-year period. At another organization, he also increased revenue per employee by 15 to 20 percent yearly. He did this while diversifying from one primary revenue channel into three revenue channels in a two-year span. Additionally, Syverson has successfully integrated offshore technology resources into business unit operations, which effectively reduced costs by 70 percent and expanded capacity.
"I am excited and honored to take on this role as President of Patient Care Technology Systems. I look forward to delivering on the PCDS vision of continued development of intuitive healthcare tools that measure and improve the quality of patient care," said Syverson.
