PatientWise, the Kenosha-based software company specializing in health-care "information exchange," announced that it would acquire the assets of Onesto, LLP, doing business as Med Pad.
Med Pad produces "middleware" which facilitates the delivery of software applications.
Robert T. Onesto, the president of Med Pad, will become president and CEO of PatientWise. Bradley C. Engel, the chairman of PatientWise, who has served as Interim CEO during the company’s seed and early development stages, will remain as chairman and continue to work at the company.
Engel said, "We have spent many months looking for a leader of Bob’s caliber, who can take the company through the finishing stages of product development and launch. Bob’s experience in managing technological innovation, and his deep understanding of the needs of investors in new technology companies, makes this an ideal marriage for PatientWise."
PatientWise Corp. last spring came out with a Web-based service for the public (www.patientwise.net). The company went on to develop software that would facilitate the exchange of information between hospitals and physicians and between caregivers and managed-care organizations. PatientWise expects those new products to be available beginning this summer.
