Central Logic announced that Scott Booher has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer (COO). In this position, he oversees several critical areas, including product, engineering, IT infrastructure and client success.
“Scott is a seasoned executive and trusted leader who consistently delivers results,” says Central Logic CEO Angie Franks. “He joins Central Logic as our solutions are rapidly being adopted by health systems as the cornerstone for their command centers. Drawing upon Scott’s deep healthcare expertise, we’ll bring together product, services and customer success, which will enable us to accelerate the execution of our strategy.”
Booher arrives at Central Logic with a 20-year history as a healthcare business and technology leader, serving companies in all phases of their existence, from inception through mature growth. Previously, he was the principal at HIT Reboot, an interim health IT consultancy with a focus on the business models and new entrants that are transforming healthcare. Booher has held several senior positions with organizations such as Ascension and UnitedHealth including SVP/Chief Information Officer at Medica Health Plans. While there, he built the team, technology infrastructure and strategic partnerships necessary to support the spinoff of a $2 billion managed care organization.
The COO position at Central Logic was very attractive to Booher, he says, in light of industry trends and the Central Logic value proposition. “Health systems are under tremendous cost pressure, and Central Logic offers a suite of solutions that provide a strong and immediate return on investment for their operations. I look forward to contributing to the growth and maturation of our team, products and operations to enhance client support and to strengthen Central Logic’s traction in the marketplace.”
Booher’s debut at Central Logic follows other executive-level additions at the company during the past year. This includes Timothy Brown being named Vice President in the summer of 2017 and Brian Lanier joining the company as Chief Financial Officer in early 2018.
