Kno2 Addresses Demand for Interoperability Platform by Naming Tom Visotsky as Vice President of Vertical Market Sales
BOISE, Idaho—November 9, 2017—Kno2®, the company that optimizes patient document exchange for everyone in healthcare, today announced that healthcare industry veteran Tom Visotsky has been named vice president of vertical market sales.
With his distinguished track record as a visionary leader in healthcare business development, Mr. Visotsky’s primary focus will be on supporting the dynamic growth of Kno2’s industry-changing interoperability platform. Kno2 currently serves electronic health record (EHR) developers covering the majority of the post-acute care market, a largely underserved segment that often struggles to enable secure electronic patient document exchange. Its interoperability platform is also incorporated into numerous EHRs for the emergency medical services, acute and ambulatory care providers.
Mr. Visotsky will manage the expansion of the Kno2 platform among its partners and their customers, empowering a multitude of providers throughout the care continuum to quickly and cost-effectively exchange electronic patient information. The Kno2 interoperability platform is currently being used to securely share electronic patient information via cloud fax, Direct messaging or document query within the current workflows of hospitals and health systems; physician practices; skilled nursing facilities; assisted/independent living communities; hospice organizations; emergency medical services; physical, behavioral and occupational therapy offices; and other providers.
“I became a strategic partner with Kno2 in 2016, and from the moment I was introduced to Kno2’s technology and the great team behind it, I was tremendously impressed with the possibilities of achieving full interoperability for our customer base and, more importantly, for the healthcare marketplace at large,” Mr. Visotsky said. “With most technologies, you can only impact a narrow range of organizations. Kno2 offers an opportunity to walk into virtually any healthcare organization and solve one of their most pressing problems—interoperability. I’m looking forward to working with our partners to incorporate the Kno2 platform into everyday provider workflows. It’s a unique opportunity to make a real difference in the way that healthcare is delivered to all of us.”
Mr. Visotsky has nearly 20 years of direct healthcare industry experience. He comes to Kno2 from HCS, developers of an integrated clinical and financial IT platform for long-term acute care hospital (LTACH), senior living and behavioral health facilities, where he was executive vice president of sales and marketing. Prior to HCS, he excelled in a variety of sales and marketing leadership roles at Sutherland Healthcare Solutions, The Advisory Board, IntraNexus, Cerner and 3M.
“Tom is energetic and driven by nature, and he is a true believer in our mission to connect all of healthcare simply, quickly and affordably,” said Jon Elwell, CEO of Kno2. “His skills, background and experience are a perfect match to help support our significant growth in the post-acute care market. With healthcare now moving toward a value-based model, the industry is recognizing the contributions post-acute care providers make to delivering better health outcomes. The Kno2 interoperability platform addresses that need, and we are thrilled to know that someone of Tom’s caliber will help drive the proliferation of our solutions to providers throughout the full continuum of healthcare.”
