Boston-based healthcare tech company Kyruus has a new board member: Ed Park, the COO of Athenahealth. Park was an early investor in Kyrruus, which has raised roughly $20 million from investors including Highland Capital Partners and Venrock since 2011.
Kyruus, a leading healthcare Big Data company, announced today that Ed Park, an original team member and current COO of athenahealth, has joined the company’s Board of Directors. Park had been an early investor in Kyruus along with athenahealth co-Founder and CEO, Jonathan Bush. In his expanded role with Kyruus, Park will bring his deep technical and market expertise to the company as it continues to expand its work with leading hospital systems.
“I am extremely excited that Ed is expanding his role with Kyruus, and looking forward to working with him on the Board of Directors,” said Graham Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Kyruus. “Ed’s deep understanding of the industry will be a tremendous asset to our team as we enter 2013.”
The intersection of Big Data and healthcare creates massive opportunities to deliver technology-based systems and services – a paradigm pioneered in the healthcare industry by companies like athenahealth. Park was the original technical architect of the athenahealth practice management platform, which has expanded to numerous product lines adopted by over 30,000 healthcare providers across the country. Park served as athenahealth’s CTO, before being appointed COO in 2010.
“Just as athenahealth successfully embraced a data-driven approach to operational efficiency for provider practices and hospitals, I am excited to help Kyruus deliver the same value to organizations focused on building and engaging their physician networks,” said Park.
