Modernizing Medicine has named Joe Harpaz as its new president and chief operating officer. Harpaz comes to the company from Thomson Reuters, where he was a managing director.
Harpaz brings more than two decades of experience in technology, business and leadership to his new role at the Boca Raton-based company.
At Thomson Reuters, Harpaz oversaw the ONESOURCE tax technology software business, a global organization with 1,800 employees.
In his new role, he will oversee all “direct customer-facing business activities including client services, revenue cycle management, marketing, sales and business development,” the release said. He is also expected to help the company evaluate opportunities for acquisitions and consolidation.
“We welcome Joe’s wealth of experience in scaling high-growth businesses, building talent and leadership capabilities, developing strategic partnerships, and successfully executing both organic growth and acquisition strategies,” said Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “Joe also embodies Modernizing Medicine’s cultural values around aligning passion with purpose. He wants to do good, and our team’s emphasis on ‘creating customer delight’ aligns with his own experience and career success.”
Modernizing Medicine is an electronic records and data provider for surgical and medical specialty physicians. Its health record software, EMA, is used by 14,000 health providers, the release said.
In May 2017, the company raised $231 million from New York-based private equity firm Warburg Pincus — among the 10 largest deals in the country for the year’s second quarter.
