Oneview Healthcare PLC (ASX:ONE) today announced the appointment of internationally recognized healthcare IT and innovation specialists Dr. Seth Bokser and Dr. Lyle Berkowitz to its Global Leadership Team to further grow and develop the company’s next generation technology for patient engagement.

Dr. Bokser, of the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), has been appointed Chief Medical Officer and Chairman of Oneview’s International Advisory Board; and Dr. Berkowitz, of Chicago’s Northwestern Medicine (NM), has been appointed as a non-executive director, a member of Oneview’s International Advisory Board, and a special advisor on innovation. Both appointments are effective immediately.

Oneview President and Founder Mark McCloskey said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Dr. Bokser and Dr. Berkowitz to our leadership ranks.  We are honored and humbled to be able to attract such globally recognized professionals to the company and believe these appointments will prove transformational for our growth and product development globally.”

Ireland-headquartered Oneview which listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in March, is a market-leading provider of innovative patient engagement and clinical workflow technology solutions to healthcare facilities in the U.S., Australia, and the Middle East.

Oneview has made significant inroads into the key U.S. healthcare market and in May, announced a U.S. headquarters in Chicago, IL, to service its rapidly growing U.S. client base.

“This dedicated innovation hub in Chicago will bring Dr. Bokser and Dr. Berkowitz’s product development efforts closer to our U.S. clients and will give them the tools and space to showcase their talent,” Mr. McCloskey added.

Dr. Bokser was UCSF’s Associate Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO), leading the University’s Benioff Children’s Hospital and Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital.  Dr. Bokser will continue to devote 20% of his time to clinical practice as a pediatrician at UCSF, where Oneview’s patient engagement system has been in use for two years.

Dr. Bokser said: “I have had the pleasure of getting to know the people and products at Oneview for the past three years.  I am inspired by Oneview’s vision and am excited about working with the team to grow Oneview’s open, flexible, and patient-centered platform.

“I am thrilled to join an exceptionally talented leadership team and build on its success.  We have the complementary expertise, passion, and technology to be the global leader in this crucial, rapidly-growing sector of healthcare.”

Dr. Berkowitz is the Director of Innovation at NM and has practiced internal medicine for more than 20 years in Chicago, helping lead NM’s IT and Innovation efforts for much of that time.

Dr. Berkowitz said: “Oneview’s success in the U.S. market in such a short space of time is testament to its product and leadership team, which I am very honored to be joining.  The nature of their early client wins clearly suggests they have a product that is redefining how we, as providers, think about patient facing technology.”
