SOUTH KINGSTOWN — ChartWise Medical Systems Inc. appointed Steven Mason as president and COO of the Computer-Assisted Clinical Documentation Improvement software firm, the company announced Wednesday.
ChartWise founder Dr. Jon Elion will remain the company’s CEO and “visionary leader.”
Mason will focus on leveraging the company’s CACDI software technology to drive increased customer growth and user satisfaction.
Mason has decades of experience in starting, operating and growing leading technology and services companies in the health and human services market, and brings his expertise to his new position at ChartWise.
Mason joins ChartWise from MedeAnalytics Inc. where, as senior vice president and general manager of enterprise performance management solutions, he was responsible for integrating, managing and growing the Mede Performance Management business unit within the broader MedeAnalytics portfolio. Prior to MedeAnalytics, Mason was the co-founder and CEO of OnFocus Healthcare, which was acquired by MedeAnalytics in 2014.
“We’ve known and worked with Steven for several years and now is the perfect time to bring him into the fold,” said Elion. “Steven’s strategic expertise in facilitating accelerated growth with healthcare technology companies is an excellent fit with the proven track record that ChartWise has established in product innovation. He has worked closely with many of the nation’s leading health systems over his career, and we’re looking forward to turning him loose to work his magic with the ChartWise 2.0 solution.”
Mason lauded ChartWise’s CACDI software prowess.
“ChartWise is second to none in terms of their CACDI software technology,” Mason said. “The company is well-regarded within the industry and has been recognized as a KLAS CDI category winner three years in a row for continuously raising the bar and advancing the technology hospitals and medical centers rely on for accurate coding, documentation and reimbursement. I look forward to hitting the ground running as we take ChartWise to the next level of growth and product leadership,” Mason said.
The company recently debuted their Risk Adjustment Factor Calculator featuring outpatient care analysis in its comprehensive cost estimation tool at the Oct. 7 American Health Information Management Convention in Los Angeles.
