Orion Health Taps Allscripts Alumnus Terry Macaleer to Lead U.S. Market
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – August 31, 2017 – Orion Health today announced the appointment of Terry Macaleer as president of Orion Health in the U.S. A health IT veteran, Macaleer helped build two successful health IT enterprise software companies from the ground up and achieved multi-million-dollar sales. He was a co-founder of Eclipsys, a publicly traded electronic health records company that later merged with Allscripts. After retiring from Eclipsys Macaleer went on to found Carefx, a software company that streamlines and simplifies clinical and business workflow and connects care providers to the information they need. From 2008 to 2014, Macaleer had a stellar career at Allscripts where, as SVP of sales, he spearheaded a new strategic initiative to sell the Ambulatory EHR system to hospitals, generating over $35 million in sales. He then spearheaded a new effort to revitalize the Acute Care EHR business and generated over $70 million is sales in just 24 months. Seeking a new challenge, he left Allscripts to join Anthelio Healthcare Solutions. As SVP of client engagement and sales, he helped turn the organization around and positioned it for a successful acquisition.
Macaleer will join Orion Health’s executive leadership team mid-September and will report to CEO Ian McCrae.
“Terry’s diverse technical and IT background makes him uniquely qualified at seeing the big picture and proactively resolving challenges,” said McCrae. “His outstanding leadership skills, management abilities and keen understanding of the complexity of the U.S. market—as evidenced by successfully building two health IT companies—make him a great choice to lead Orion Health’s U.S. team and serve our U.S. customers.”
“It is no secret the U.S. healthcare system is going through monumental changes, particularly the shift from fee-for-service care to value-based care,” said Macaleer. “Value-based care leads directly to population health management and to precision medicine with a huge requirement for data analytics. That is precisely the strategic direction of Orion Health, with many of the pieces already in place. Being a global company that can bring health systems insights from across the globe—where value-based care already exists—positions Orion Health extremely well in the U.S. market."
Macaleer takes over the reins from Wayne Oxenham, the current president of Orion Health U.S., who held the role for 18 months on a fixed-term basis. Oxenham will be relocating back to Orion Health’s corporate headquarters in Auckland.
