BOSTON, April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Acuity Link, a comprehensive non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) communications

In the new position, he will be responsible for overseeing Acuity Link's strategy for the seamless integration of NEMT programming at partner institutions, providing the utmost in value and minimal disruption to these systems and the patients they serve.

O'Connor most recently served as executive vice president of strategic operations with Public Partnerships/Public Consulting Group in Boston, MA. In the role, O'Connor was responsible for designing, building and leading a new strategic operations team which provided the enterprise with shared services including business architecture, contract implementation, and enterprise project management capabilities for future growth positioning. Peter and his team managed more than 20 implementations and 35 strategic projects simultaneously, ensuring that all efforts remained on budget and schedule.

Previously, O'Connor served as vice president of corporate business implementations with Beacon Health Options - formerly Beacon Health Strategies - which is the largest privately held managed behavioral healthcare organization in the country.

"With over 20 years of experience in the healthcare implementation and integration space, we look forward to the value and quality-based benefits Peter will bring to the Acuity Link executive team," said Alex Theoharidis, CEO of Acuity Link. "His proven track-record of scalable and repeatable process optimizations and ability to achieve company synergies will no doubt drive prove instrumental as we enhance our relationships with new and existing partners."

Acuity Link was launched to address the mounting need for a comprehensive communications and logistics management platform that could link healthcare systems with emergency and non-emergency medical transportation providers and ambulance crew members for all levels of care and modes of transportation. As a result of using Acuity Link's technology, hospitals today benefit from instant access to the closest available and most suitable transportation resources, and a reduction in bottlenecks that impact patient flow, leading to shorter discharge times, and in turn, improved care and experience. The company's software goes beyond the standard transport request procedures, allowing for streamlined interactions, more efficient and effective data collection and operational performance evaluation which can be used to make more informed decisions to drive patient flow through the healthcare ecosystem.

"It's not enough to just provide a value-based service to healthcare partners, but rather, it's critical to ensure that all players involved operate and receive care services at an optimal level," said Peter O'Connor, "The work collectively provided by Acuity Link and its partners is incredibly important and I'm excited to jump in and bridge the gap between the two for seamless program integration."    

Earlier this month, the Acuity Link team welcomed Mark Contardo as the company's new vice president of sales.
