MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyRemedy, Inc., a manufacturer of point-of-care, robotic systems for the fabrication and tracking of customized nano-material based wound treatments, has hired Diane Cooper, PhD, FAAN, as its medical director and chief of clinical affairs and Joe Coyne as its vice president of solution delivery and information technology. The new appointments were created to serve critical customer needs during a time of exceptional Company growth.

"We welcome Diane and Joe, who each bring deep expertise in their respective fields to our management team," said Dan Eckert, PolyRemedy president and chief executive officer. "With their respective clinical and operational experience and recognized healthcare industry leadership, we are in a strong position to deliver our wound care system to clinicians and patients."

Dr. Cooper is an internationally recognized leader in medical research, clinical trials, nursing, education and wound care. As part of her new role as PolyRemedy's medical director and chief of clinical affairs, Dr. Cooper will form relationships with key clinical advisors and thought leaders in wound care to communicate the Company's vision and value to wound management. Dr. Cooper's focus on wound healing has spanned three decades and included faculty appointments at the University of South Florida, Tampa, Fla., University of Texas, Galveston, Texas, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich., and the University of California San Francisco. Among other industry positions, Dr. Cooper previously served as the worldwide medical director for Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Wound Management, Somerville, N.J., and director of clinical affairs, tissue management, for Human Genome Sciences, Rockville, Md., and HEALTHPOINT, Ltd., Fort Worth, Texas.

"PolyRemedy is an innovative company tackling a significant healthcare problem," said Dr. Cooper. "The cost of chronic wounds, both in terms of healthcare dollars and the emotional toll on the individuals experiencing them, grows daily. PolyRemedy's system will radically change the way wound care is delivered and tracked, and I'm excited to be part of that change." PolyRemedy develops a system that delivers customized dressings for each patient, ensuring the continuity of care between the outpatient clinic and home, more easily allowing clinicians to track treatments, healing rates and cost of care.

As PolyRemedy's vice president of solution delivery and IT, Coyne will contribute his understanding of healthcare information technology and direct experience implementing and supporting innovative delivery systems. Coyne brings over 20 years of experience in healthcare information systems and automation, most recently serving as vice president of information systems and chief information officer for Omnicell, Inc., Mountain View, Calif. Prior to that, he held various technical leadership positions with Omnicell and HBO & Company (now McKesson Corporation), San Francisco, Calif.

"I'm looking forward to helping PolyRemedy revolutionize the wound care delivery process," said Coyne. "With PolyRemedy's innovative system, we have the opportunity to contribute to the knowledge of wound care and wound progress in an exciting, unprecedented way. Using IT, we will be able to capture very detailed and useful information about treatments and the progress of the wound, and the system has the capability to generate wound dressing orders on-demand for patients at home, which ensures continuum of care."

Both Dr. Cooper and Mr. Coyne will report to Eckert as part of PolyRemedy's senior management team and work out of the Company's Mountain View headquarters.
