Fort Worth, TX, February 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Sandlot Solutions, Inc. has announced the appointment of Joseph Casper as chief executive officer.
Prior to joining Sandlot, Casper had devoted more than 25 years to the healthcare Industry. He previously served as president of FCG Software Products in Long Beach, CA, and most recently served as vice president of business development for MedPlus, a Quest Diagnostics Company in Ohio. Casper also brings more than 10 years of health information exchange (HIE) experience.
Sandlot Solutions, Inc. is a joint venture that was created in November 2011 between Santa Rosa Consulting, Inc. and North Texas Specialty Physicians (NTSP). This new entity builds upon the success NTSP established when it created an HIE in 2006, connecting more than 600 physicians in North Texas and containing clinical information from more than 2 million patient records. Sandlot Solutions, Inc, was formed to bring their HIE model to the national marketplace.
"Joe’s appointment punctuates the commitment Santa Rosa and NTSP have made to improve healthcare," said Richard Helppie, chairman of Sandlot Solutions, Inc. "We’ve already demonstrated that we can build and deploy a sustainable physician-driven health information exchange. We believe Joe can help us enhance our solution and expand our footprint, improving healthcare nationally.”
“I have been around health information exchange solutions since the concept first arose in the 1990’s. I have personally experienced the challenges and the successes that have been seen with several HIE’s across the nation. Before Sandlot, I had not seen an HIE that offers so much value within the physician workflow. I was delighted when the Sandlot board asked me to lend my expertise to the company,” Casper said.
“It’s clear that Joe’s entrepreneurial background and past health information exchange experience will help others see what North Texas Specialty Physicians have come to rely on,” said Karen Van Wagner, executive director of NTSP. “Our Board welcomes Joe and looks forward to his leadership in shaping Sandlot Solutions.”
