Our clients experience this in many ways, including the increase in Total INSIGHT clients’ revenue by 11.1% in 2015 and by another 9.3% during the first half of 2016. I look forward to helping not only our clients continue to thrive, but also the patients who depend on them.”
Prior to ZirMed, Rowe served as the vice president and general manager of the hospital and large practice division of GE Healthcare IT. He also spent 17 years with IDX Systems Corporation, advancing from sales executive to regional vice president of sales to national vice president of sales before the company was acquired by GE Healthcare.
