NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- eDoc4u (www.eDoc4u.com), a division of ConduIT Corporation, announced today that Gary Peat (www.linkedin.com/in/garypeat) has joined as Senior Vice President of Corporate and Business Development, effective April 17th, 2013. Gary will provide strategic leadership and support throughout eDoc4u's organization, including sales and business development, financial strategy, and marketing.
"I look forward to applying my experience in building healthcare IT companies as an eDoc4u team member in this critical phase of eDoc4u's expansion. eDoc4u's growth is being fueled by a simple yet dramatic program: up to $36 billion in Meaningful Use payments for providers to buy EHRs under HITECH. This has already driven an EHR adoption increase from as little as 25% in 2010 to as high as 72% nationally in 2012. This changes healthcare more profoundly than perhaps anything in the last 25 or 30 years. More importantly, it dramatically expands eDoc4u's opportunity. The need and the timing for eDoc4u is great, and that's already evident in eDoc4u's growth and new partner additions (www.youtube.com/embed/jW3Ff2T_sAQ) such as Allscripts, a top 5 EHR vendor. I'm fortunate to get to work with eDoc4u at this opportune time in the market," said Mr. Peat.
Before joining eDoc4u, Gary Peat was General Partner of Council Capital since inception in 2000. Council Capital is a venture capital and private equity firm focused on growth-stage healthcare investments. Gary has spent 20 years as an early-stage venture investor, with most of that time focused on improving quality and reducing long-term healthcare cost by investing in information technology companies that drive healthcare innovation.
"We're excited to have Gary Peat in this new position," said Rich Smith, President of eDoc4u. "Gary brings a wealth of experience in healthcare investment, business and technology, and hyper-growth company building. His expertise will help broaden our client base within healthcare organizations, but also ensure that we effectively execute on both current and newly emerging opportunities."
