"Michael's clinical expertise and passion for transforming care delivery through health IT make him an excellent addition to the Prematics team, and it is my pleasure to welcome him," said Kevin Hutchinson, president and CEO of Prematics. "Michael will also be a tremendous asset to our health plan clients because he understands how they can use e-prescribing to start transforming the way they communicate with providers and members about medication management, disease management, and other important issues. E-Prescribing has the power to deliver critical information when and where it matters most -- at the point of care when both physician and patient are present. This is the critical point where health plans can achieve the greatest impact on safety and savings."

Ross is a veteran of the health care and health information technology industries. He possesses over 25 years of experience, serving in a variety of roles spanning clinical care, executive leadership of managed care organizations and integrated delivery systems, and outcomes research.

"I am very excited to be a part of an incredibly talented leadership team that is committed to improving clinical quality and outcomes through the use of innovative care communication technologies such as e-prescribing," said Dr. Ross. "Prematics offers tremendous value to payers, physicians and patients by enabling the delivery of meaningful data at the point of care that can improve medication management, enhance care coordination and augment the physician-patient dialogue."

Prior to joining Prematics, Ross served as the vice president of health care at Varolii Corp., where he helped health care organizations leverage the power of automation through proactive bidirectional patient message delivery. He also served as vice president of strategic business at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and as chief executive officer of Advanced Concepts Institute, a USP research group focused on the adoption of health information technology and its impact.

Ross's other health care experience includes serving as senior vice president and chief medical officer of HealthOnline, a health care e-commerce and information service. Previously, he was a founder and principal of Holisticos, an organization focused on developing products designed to allow the safe synthesis of select high-quality complementary and alternative medicine services with conventional care.

A pediatrician by training, Ross managed one of the most successful pediatric practices in Washington, D.C., and for three years was named one of the "Top Doctors of Washington" in peer reviews for Washingtonian magazine. After leaving clinical practice, he served as vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer at MetLife HealthCare Network of South Florida Inc., where he managed a 4,000-member provider organization with more than 100,000 covered lives. He also served as executive director of Scottish Rite Pediatric Partners, a full-service MSO that provides practice management services to more than 100 pediatricians associated with the Scottish Rite Children's Medical Center in Atlanta.

Ross received a Bachelor of Science and a medical degree from George Washington University and a Master in Health Administration degree from the Medical College of Virginia. He is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
