Miller to head up Mediware as New CEO

Healthcare and technology veteran will work to continue Mediware's strategy to expand its technology footprint into other related sectors.

Healthcare industry veteran Bill Miller has joined HME software company Mediware Information Systems Inc. as its CEO.

The move is part of Mediware’s agenda to expand its reach into new markets. After TPG Capital, the global private equity platform of alternative asset firm TPG, acquired Mediware in February, the software company recently acquired Kinnser Software, adding a home health and hospice portfolio to its existing offering of SaaS solutions for human and social services, blood management, and medication management.

Out of the gate, Miller and Mediware’s management will prioritize expanding its footprint in the alternate care and human and social services markets, according to the company.

Miller replaces outgoing Mediware leader Kelly Mann, who joined the company as a CEO in 2007.

“I want to thank the team at Mediware for their dedication, innovation, and hard work over the last several years. Mediware is a best-in-class company and it’s been a privilege to have played a leading role,” Mann said. “Bill is an accomplished industry executive with valuable operational skills and creative insights. With his leadership and the ongoing support of our partners at TPG, I am confident that Mediware is well positioned for its next chapter of growth.”

Miller comes to Mediware with more than 20 years’ experience in healthcare and technology. He most most recently served as CEO of OptumInsight at Optum, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, the largest health services company in the world. While at OptumInsight, he led significant company growth, with revenues expanding from $1.5 billion to over $5 billion. Miller has also served as the vice president of technologies at Cerner Corp., where he oversaw its technology businesses managed services, outsourcing, and advanced technology consulting practices.

“Having spent my entire career in the healthcare and technology industries, I have known Mediware as an industry leader with a deep understanding of the marketplace and an ongoing commitment to quality and client service,” Miller said. “I am excited about their strong position in the expanding markets they serve, and look forward to working with TPG and the Mediware team to build on the momentum that the company has achieved to-date.”
