Stephenson’s Experience and Relationships to Boost Growing Brand
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jan. 18 – 2013 — Tom Stephenson has been named president and chief operating officer of Amplion Clinical Communications.
Stephenson, a veteran health care technology executive, began his career more than two decades ago at Health Management Systems (HMC). He began as a programmer and ended his tenure there as CEO prior to joining Amplion.
Stephenson’s track record will help Amplion continue the early momentum the company has built since launching its new brand in November 2012, said chairman and CEO David Condra.
Amplion was formerly Dalcon, founded in 1979. Last year, launching under the Amplion name, company leaders refocused efforts on in-room patient-to-nurse communications with their Amplion Alert technology.
“Tom comes to Amplion at a great time,” Condra said. “We are moving quickly to advance patient safety and satisfaction at health care facilities across the country. Tom’s experience and relationships are a huge asset for us.”
Stephenson, a Vanderbilt University graduate, has also served on the boards of the Nashville Health Care Council and the Nashville Technology Council.
“I learned early on in my career that it’s critical to listen to your clients,” Stephenson said. “That’s what we’re doing at Amplion – listening to hospital administrators and nurse leaders. They tell us they want to be more organized and responsive and have better data they can use to improve patient care and safety. The technology we offer does that. I’m looking forward to working with someone of David’s integrity and vision and helping lead the Amplion team to pursue this tremendous opportunity to help hospitals and patients.
