Raleigh, North Carolina-based Orthus Health hires experienced healthcare industry leaders to expand its comprehensive, integrated wellness and disease management platform, with initial focus on health analytics.
Orthus Health is excited to welcome two healthcare technology veterans to its leadership team. Keith Richards joins as Vice President of Product Management, bringing a depth of healthcare technology experience with notable organizations like Greenway Health, ZirMed, and CoreLogic. Wes Galbo joins as Vice President of Operations, having previously held strategic marketing and operations leadership positions with McKesson, Allscripts, and Optum.
