Dell has today named Dr. Andrew Litt chief medical officer of the firm. The former health system executive and head of Litt Healthcare Ventures will be responsible for providing strategic insight into Dell’s healthcare solutions. The company helps healthcare organizations, medical professionals and patients realize the benefits of information-enabled healthcare.
“Andy brings a wealth of provider experience to this role and will further enhance Dell’s deep expertise in healthcare,” said August Calhoun, Ph.D., vice president of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences Services.
“Currently, our team includes hundreds of clinicians along with business and technology professionals who specialize in clinical and IT implementation. Andy will help our team drive further performance efficiencies and healthcare transformation with our customers,” said Calhoun.
While serving as head of Litt Healthcare Ventures, Litt consulted with private equity firms and others who were interested in investing in healthcare. He also served as executive vice president, vice dean and chief of staff of New York University Langone Medical Center.
In that role, Litt oversaw the turnaround of the medical center’s finances, implemented a new strategic plan, coordinated the development of a new clinical tower, and implemented an electronic health record system and other major projects.
Dell is ranked number one for IT services in the worldwide healthcare provider market for the second consecutive year, according to a Gartner Marketshare report on IT released this spring.
