Former Optus exec joins Best Practice Software

Best Practice Software has appointed former Optus executive Janet Whitmore to a newly created role of general manager, customer and commercial, joining the company's founders, Frank and Lorraine Pyefinch, and chief operating officer Craig Hodges in a new four-person executive team.

Ms Whitmore had a long career with the telecommunications provider in a number of roles, including IT general manager for its mobile, consumer, and small to medium business units and as head of IT systems and services, where she helped develop a suite of business and mobile application units.

She was also a group manager of IT and user support for a large Australian educational institution.

Best Practice has undergone a large expansion in the last two years, setting up a New Zealand office with the purchase of Hamilton-based medical specialist software vendor Houston Medical as well as allied health software vendor myPractice, which has a mainly Australian customer base.

It recently released the long-awaited Lava edition of its market-leading GP software and is set to shortly release a patient app while continuing to work on the next planned releases, Indigo and Titanium, the latter of which will be a cloud-based product.
