“Healthcare technology is rapidly changing the ways patients receive care, how clinicians make better decisions, and even how students learn to practice. I am excited to work with Greg and Peter in their new expanded roles to accelerate the innovation and customer success we deliver across our solutions at such an important time in the industry and global healthcare markets,” said Stacey Caywood, Chief Executive Officer, Wolters Kluwer Health.
Harish Ramachandran, Country Head for India at Wolters Kluwer Health, said “Healthcare across the globe is currently going through a paradigm shift. From approaching patient care reactively, now the situation demands a proactive approach, which includes, early-stage adoption of evidence-based medicine (EBM) for clinical effectiveness. The entire team of Wolters Kluwer India is thrilled to welcome both Greg and Peter in their new roles. Under their leadership, we look forward to a successful and committed journey that can drive innovation in the industry across geographies.”
