November 20, 2012

CareCloud, a software and service provider for cloud-based practice management, medical billing and electronic health record (EHR) for medical groups, has brought Ralph Catalano on board as the vice-president of operations. Mr. Catalano brings with him more than three decades of industry experience and he will join CareCloud as a member of its executive leadership team. He will be responsible for overseeing company’s account management operations and revenue cycle management.

Mr. Ralph Catalano has over 30 years of experience in the financial and healthcare services sector. He has been responsible for account management operations and for managing and scaling global BPO (Business Processing Outsourcing) in his earlier stints. Mr. Catalano will be relocated to Miami to manage CareCloud’s customer service and support organizations and the company’s back-office revenue cycle management. He will be reporting to Albert Santalo, CareCloud's chairman and chief executive officer. He is all set to assume his new role from December 3, 2012.

"During the past year, CareCloud has expanded its leadership team to include some of the healthcare industry's most talented and experienced executives. Ralph is without question one of the industry's foremost experts in building and scaling back-office and technology-enabled business process operations. His contribution will help us support our rapidly-growing revenue cycle management service," said Mr. Santalo.

 "As our national client base grows so does the demand to deliver the industry's best services, software, and client results. We still have a lot of technology-enabled process innovation to do and Ralph will be instrumental in leading our relentless efforts to continually improve our service offering and delivering the best client success metrics in healthcare IT."

"I have had the pleasure of working for innovative companies during times of transition in their respective industries. In my opinion, CareCloud represents a new chapter in innovation and disruption in the relatively stagnant healthcare technology sector and I am thrilled to join an impressive leadership team and vibrant and rapidly growing company," said Mr. Catalano. "CareCloud understands the evolving needs of the physician market and how imperative it is to offer a modern user interface and flexibility to choose the various services and applications that meet their immediate needs, ultimately lowering barriers and enabling more doctors to leverage cloud-computing in their daily operations. With this flexibility comes the need for world-class operational scale and account management capabilities that I am excited to begin helping to bolster."

Mr. Catalano has come to CareCloud from athenahealth, Inc., a well-known provider of web-based technologies and services to physicians. Prior to athenahealth, Mr. Catalano has held various product management and operations management positions in institutions like Fleet Financial, Bank of America and Bank of Boston. Mr. Catalano graduated Magna cum Laude with a BS in Business Administration from Boston University. He is also an MBA from Boston College with Concentrations in Computer Science and Finance.
