Ravi Sharma is among the healthcare industry’s leading information technology experts.
As rising star at GE Healthcare early in his career, he was selected to lead the development of GE’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) initiative, which was called GE Cares. He was subsequently recruited by Toshiba America Medical Systems to head up its US Operations, where he developed Toshiba’s North American strategy and dramatically increased its market share in what was then a declining market. Thereafter, he was recruited back to GE Healthcare to serve as General Manager of its Northeast operation, where, in less than one year, he transitioned the zone from the worst to the best performer among GE Healthcare’s five regional divisions.
He was handpicked to be the first Global Director of GE’s Six Sigma business, where he established the strategy and managed its implementation worldwide. He left GE to serve as CEO for three early-stage healthcare technology companies, each of which he built into successful operations providing progressive solutions in clinical integration to a wide range of cloud-based healthcare companies. Ravi has a deep understanding of healthcare IT, including transformational technologies across the healthcare spectrum that offer the potential to increase efficiency, improve quality, decrease costs, enhance decision making, and engage patients.
