Curaspan software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications empower users with actionable data to help streamline the patient transition process, improve transition of care, and by extension, the bottom line. As vice president of product management, Miller is responsible for growing the company's product line, including eDischarge(TM), the SaaS application repeatedly recognized for excellence by the Health Care Advisory Board and KLAS.
"Edwin is an innovative and seasoned product lifecycle leader with experience across a range of health-care IT areas including EHR/EMR, eMAR, practice-management systems and claims/remittance processing EDI," says Ken Manning, chief operating officer at Curaspan. "We're very excited about having Edwin on board to enhance our product suite."
Miller brings over 20 years of product development experience having launched multiple nationally recognized technology and SaaS products. Most recently, he was president/COO at Artromick International and vice president of product management at athenahealth, where he managed the athenaClinicals product.
"By building a technology-driven network of providers that works together in ways previously not possible, Curaspan represents an unprecedented innovation in health-care," says Miller. "I'm very excited to have the opportunity to contribute as we continue to optimize an error-prone, inefficient health-care supply chain and generate results for customers and patients."
Also new to Curaspan are sales executives Chris Morrish, Kevin Cook and Nick Conway. Morrish is a proven health-care IT sales executive, most recently with Sunquest Information Systems. Cook, previously with Target Teams and GE/HSPC, is an accomplished sales leader joining Curaspan as director of network development. Conway joins Curaspan after working at Omnicell and Cardiac Science Corporation.
Curaspan HIPAA-compliant software - built with clinical expertise from case managers, discharge planners and social workers - is easy to deploy and use. With no capital investment required, the average hospital can be up and running in six to eight weeks, with less than three hours of staff training. Moreover, for each dollar invested, Curaspan customers get an $8-10 dollar return, fully covering costs within three months of going live. In 2009, Curaspan customers cut preventable readmissions and saved almost $180 million.
Curaspan works with many of the nation's top hospitals and post-acute care providers including Johns Hopkins Health System, New York Presbyterian, St. Thomas Health Services (part of Ascension Health), Vanguard Health Systems, Amedisys Home Health Services, American Medical Response, Gentiva Health Services, Golden LivingCenters, Kindred Healthcare, Life Care Centers of America and Sunbridge Health, among many others.
