PowerHealth Solutions has appointed a new Board of Directors to provide high-level executive governance and control to ensure the company's continuing success as it enters a phase of rapid expansion.
PowerHealth’s costing and billing systems are increasingly being adopted at the state and national level, with implementation at all public hospitals. In addition, the company is also venturing into new business areas such as ambulance services, as well as increasing international coverage. This represents a significant increase in the PowerHealth user base in a very short period.
The new Board is among several key structural changes adopted to handle this rapid growth. Other initiatives include a new Chief Operations Officer, an in-house Human Resources section, new account manager roles and additional project managers to ensure all projects adhere to rigorous quality standards. Executive directors Patrick Power and Paul Venables welcome the new members to the Board — Chairman Daryl Stillwell, and non-executive directors Barry Smith and Nick Hakof.
Chairman Daryl Stillwell said, "This company is in excellent shape and the Board is privileged to provide governance and guidance through this exciting time."
