SAN FRANCISCO, May 5 Practice Fusion, the fastest growing Electronic Medical Record (EMR) community in the US, today announced the addition of Vy Le as Vice President of Training. Vy will use her experience in brand marketing, business development and healthcare to create innovative training systems for healthcare providers and patients.
"Vy is a proven leader in the healthcare space and a perfect match for our team," said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. "There are hundreds of thousands of doctors, nurses and practice staff members making the switch from paper charts to Electronic Medical Records in the next few years and millions of patients who want to take control of their health data. Vy is going to show them the way."
Prior to joining Practice Fusion, Vy was the Chief Operations Officer for Current Health Medical Group, which she held since 2006. Working directly with physicians and patients, Vy led Current Health's innovation in patient-driven healthcare, medical technology and primary care delivery.
"I'm excited to be a part of the solution. Being in the trenches with physicians and private practices over the last four years, I became quite intimate with the challenges physicians and their staff faced in providing quality healthcare due to lack of funds or systems," said Vy. "Practice Fusion removes the barrier to quality patient care by providing doctors a free solution to the day-to-day operational challenges. "
Key facts about Vy Le:
Regarded as a "revolutionary leader" in the healthcare industry by the American Association of Private Physicians (AAPP), Vy's career did not begin in medicine. With an eye for brand identity and an innate sense for consumer needs, Vy was recruited to GAP Inc in 1995 where she began her career in a variety of generalist positions, including: store operations, human resources, marketing, merchandising, production, consumer experience, and business development in domestic and international markets.
Vy remains on the Board for Current Health Medical Group and continues to influence the patient experience in doctors' offices across the country as a board member of Private Medical Marketing Group.
