CareTech Solutions Appoints Brian Ferrell to Lead US Sales Organization

New vice president to manage the national sales efforts for healthcare information technology and health information management outsourcing company

Troy, Mich. – May 2, 2005 — CareTech Solutions, an information technology (IT) and health information management (HIM) outsourcing company for hospitals and health systems, strengthened its management team today, announcing the appointment of Brian Ferrell to head its US sales organization. Based in Troy, Mich., Ferrell will manage the overall national sales strategy and sales force.

“Brian has a strong industry background and a passion for developing strong customer relationships,” said Jim Giordano, president and CEO of CareTech Solutions. “He’s a valuable addition to the CareTech management team, and we are confident he will continue to grow and develop our sales channels.”

Ferrell will lead a US sales team charged with demonstrating the financial and clinical benefits inherent in the CareTech service offering to senior healthcare administrators. Similar to the economies realized through group purchasing organizations and outsourcing contracts for non core business operations, hospitals gain increased purchasing power, expanded expertise and flexible resources by contracting with CareTech to manage their infrastructure and clinical, financial and administrative information systems.

“CareTech has established a solid reputation in the industry for providing IT and HIM services, resources and expertise that hospitals may not be able to develop or purchase themselves,” stated Ferrell. “Growing CareTech’s business will be a challenge that I’m certain will prove to be rewarding both personally, as well as for the healthcare organizations that we’ll come to serve.”

Ferrell brings more than 20 years of sales experience to CareTech. He has held several key management positions including regional vice president at one of the world’s largest suppliers of diagnostic equipment and information technology solutions to the healthcare industry. Ferrell holds a B.S. degree from Purdue University.
