Medicomp Systems’ has announced the promotion of Dave Lareau to Chief Executive Officer. As you may recall, Medicomp Systems is responsible for not only the MEDCIN Engine, embedded into leading EHRs around the world, but also for Quippe, an easy to use physician and nursing documentation tool.
CHANTILLY (April 18, 2012) – Medicomp Systems announced today that David Lareau has been named Chief Executive Officer. Lareau has been with Medicomp Systems since 1995 as the Chief Operating Officer responsible for operations, product management, and business development.
Peter Goltra, founder of Medicomp Systems said, “Dave shares my vision of improving patient care by using technology to provide information and connectivity at the point of care. Dave’s leadership and industry knowledge has enabled us to put the MEDCIN Engine in leading EHR systems around the world.”
Before joining Medicomp Systems, Lareau founded a company that successfully put one of the first PC-based LAN systems, which used e-mail and groupware, into the Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. Following the success of The Sinai Hospital project, Lareau founded another company that focused on medical billing, which ultimately led him to partner with Peter Goltra of Medicomp Systems.
Since joining Medicomp in 1995, David Lareau has played an instrumental role in bringing Peter Goltra’s vision of improving medical care through information technology to life. The powerful MEDCIN Engine, developed by Goltra, has been continuously updated and expanded and can be found in leading EHRs around the world. The MEDCIN® Engine adapts to the unique clinical presentation of each patient, provides the codes needed for compliance and reimbursement and provides the engine for connected clinical care.
Under Lareau’s leadership, Medicomp recently introduced Quippe, powered by the MEDCIN Engine. Quippe is an easy to use web-based physician and nursing documentation tool that satisfies meaningful use requirements and runs on most mobile devices.
Goltra, who will remain as Chairman and President, said, “Dave has been instrumental in growing our company and I’m confident that he’s the right person to lead Medicomp into the future. His appointment to CEO will enable me to focus on the powerful MEDCIN Engine and continuing to expand our knowledge engine to genetics, nursing and home health.”
