HOUSTON, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Healthcare Alliance announces the appointment of Ivo Nelson to the Board of Directors.
"Ivo is a nationally renowned leader in both the healthcare and technology industries. His passion for innovation and technology will be a tremendous asset as we continue to revolutionize the experience between the patient, provider and payer. We are excited to have Ivo join the board and are confident that he will have a positive strategic impact at Global," said John Adams, President and CEO of Global.
Ivo Nelson is the Chairman and CEO of Next Wave Health, an investment firm that works with start-ups and early stage companies. He began his career in healthcare at Perot Systems and was an early proponent of clinical transformation. The idea that healthcare systems could use technology to improve patient care and outcomes led Ivo to form Healthlink Corporation in 1992. Healthlink grew to be the largest privately held, provider-focused, healthcare technology consulting firm in the world when IBM acquired it in 2005.
In 2009, Ivo co-founded Encore Health Resources to assist healthcare organizations in mining the business intelligence accrued after decades of process and technology improvements. Since it's founding, Encore was one of the fastest-growing health IT services companies in the industry, and it was named one of Modern Healthcare's "Best Places to Work in Healthcare" five years in a row. Encore was acquired by Quintiles in 2014.
He was named to the HIMSS "50 in 50" list, recognizing the top 50 contributors to the healthcare IT industry in the past 50 years. He also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from CHIME, the HIMSS Leadership Award, and the prestigious Ernst &Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Ivo is a strategic advisor to several healthcare technology companies. He served on the boards of Encore Health Resources, HealthPost, Health Care DataWorks and MedSynergies.
"I am very selective about where I devote my time and resources and I am excited about the opportunity to work with the Global team. This company has an impressive track record and is a diamond in the rough, poised to take advantage of the next wave of innovation in healthcare reimbursement," said Ivo Nelson.
