New head for Global Health
ASX-listed healthcare software solutions vendor Global Health has appointed Michael Davies as its new CEO, taking over from founder and major shareholder Mathew Cherian, who is moving to a new role as executive director.
The company markets the MasterCare+ electronic medical record system, ReferralNet secure messaging, HotHealth patient engagement platform and Lifecard personal health record and has been in operation for 30 years.
Mr Davies has a background in technology adoption, sales and marketing, over 20 years of experience with Telstra, Optus and most recently as head of revenue at Macquarie Telecom.
Mr Cherian, the current managing director and CEO, will lead Global Health’s strategic focus and expansion into new markets, including the Asia-Pacific region, and potentially mergers and acquisitions.
Global Health chairman Steven Pynt said the company had been working on CEO succession for two years but the plans were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said the appointment will free up Mr Cherian to pursue other opportunities in Australia and internationally.
Mr Davies said Global Health was making a difference for the patient journey. “Modern patient care requires patient information and communication to happen seamlessly between many different care givers and specialists,” he said.
“I am excited to be able to lead a company focused on achieving this, and creating a better patient journey and improved efficiency for providers.”
Mr Davies begins on July 1.
