oversees the Health IT division, these staff positions were added to

expand MMIC’s reach in that market. “While many recognize MMIC as a

mobile and virtual access for clinicians. He was a founding executive of
cMore Medical Solutions, Inc., rebranded as ProVation Medical, Inc. in
2002, and acquired by Wolters Kluwer in 2006.
“My immediate goals at MMIC are twofold,” said Woodward. “First, to
build a world class consultative sales team; and second, to review and
build our software and services offerings to make sure we have the best
mix of products, tools and services that our physician clients need to
remain independent in their practice of medicine.”

time marketing, advertising and communications support to the Health IT
