Sleep and respiratory equipment maker ResMed has hired onetime Brightree Chief Operating Officer Bobby Ghoshal to serve as its first-ever Chief Technology Officer.
In his new role, CTO Ghoshal will lead ResMed’s global healthcare informatics and data analytics team to drive its cloud-based, digital health platforms, as well as invest in and develop emerging health technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Ghoshal more than 25 years’ experience in IT and high tech has most recently focused on the HME industry. Since 2016, he has served as the COO of post-acute software company Brightree, which ResMed acquired for $800 million in 2016, and prior to that, he served as ResMed’s vice president of IT from 2012 to 2016.
“Bobby has played several key roles in ResMed’s emergence as a world-leading connected health company this past decade, and we’re excited to appoint him as our new CTO,” said ResMed CEO Mick Farrell. “I have worked with Bobby for many years and he has incredible energy, integrity, intelligence and an always-learning attitude that will guide ResMed’s emerging competence in artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep neural networks and other data analytics technologies to change the lives of millions more patients.”
“I’m excited to lead ResMed’s extraordinary healthcare informatics team to help drive the value of connected health, leveraging the power of technology and data for the hundreds of millions of people who suffer from sleep apnea, COPD, and related chronic diseases worldwide,” Ghoshal said.
ResMed’s Healthcare Informatics team had been led by Raj Sodhi, current president of ResMed’s software-as-a-service businesses.
“I’m excited for Bobby’s return to the ResMed team,” Sodhi said. “With Bobby as CTO, I can be fully focused on expanding the capabilities of ResMed’s SaaS solutions for out-of-hospital care, while Bobby leads the next level of tech innovation, investments and partnerships that will take our digital health capabilities to new frontiers, for the ultimate benefit of patients, physicians, providers and payers.”
