NOVEMBER 8, 2017 - Alameda, CA. Former Apple and Verifone senior executive, C. Lloyd Mahaffey, has teamed with Karen Scott and Scott Bateman, the co-founders of Healthcare Project Management Partners, a major EHR deployment service provider in the US, to launch Windancer Technologies to respond to the tectonic shift unfolding in healthcare as large and small healthcare systems struggle with the implementation of new technologies, software, and services to improve patient care, increase service line revenue, and meet regulatory requirements.
Windancer, based in Silicon Valley, has crafted the best of healthcare, technology, and marketing solutions into a range of unique offerings that accelerate the deployment of comprehensive digital health record systems while, at the same time, interdicting cybersecurity threats to patient data and legacy systems. Their goal is to help CIO’s and CISO’s maintain service line performance, meet their operating objectives, while still reducing costs.
“With an expanding three-dimensional cloud of data swirling around patients and the speed in which digital biometric and emerging technologies are going to impact healthcare, we felt the time was right to launch the company,” said Mahaffey, Windancer’s Executive Chairman.
The company has just landed its first customer, LCMC Health, a Louisiana-based, non-profit healthcare system serving the needs of the people of Louisiana, the Gulf South, and beyond. “The depth and variety of creative ideas we tap into through Windancer is very refreshing and unique in healthcare. They understand how to motivate patients, physicians, and staff to engage over the long term,” said Tanya Townsend, SVP & CIO, LCMC Health.
“In launching Windancer, we wanted to engage with one of the most innovative healthcare systems in the US. In LCMC Health, we have an extraordinary client and partner who is exploring the cutting edge of technologies and services to meet their patient care mission,” said Karen Scott, Windancer’s CEO.
