"I can't begin to say how proud we are to add two such recognized and respected veterans to our board," VisiQuate Founder & CEO Brian Robertson said. "We're kicking off our second decade with incredible momentum, and these two new board members will add invaluable new perspective to our vision and growth strategy."
According to Jim Lacy, "VisiQuate is in the right place at the right time to help healthcare organizations better monetize their data and information assets. The combination of VisiQuate's deep domain expertise and advanced AI-driven analytics gives them a unique position in healthcare analytics. I'm a big believer in the company's vision and am really excited to be working with such a talented group of people."
