Alcidion today announced the appointment of Steve Lutz as General Manager of Business Development for Australia and New Zealand. Based in the Sydney office, Steve will be responsible for driving business growth in the region, as well as managing and growing our existing sales team.
Steve brings a wealth of experience and expertise having worked for global health IT organisations in senior sales and management positions across Australia, Asia Pacific and Europe. Most recently, Steve was Managing Director at Oneview Healthcare, a patient experience software provider, where he was tasked with overseeing the company’s sales, services and market development functions in ANZ.
Prior to this role, Steve held several senior roles with Cerner Corporation, one of the leading Electronic Medical Record vendors. In his seventeen years with Cerner, Steve worked with eHealth NSW on forging notable programs of work including state-wide Community Health and Outpatient Care and Electronic Medications Management, focused on improving patient safety and outcome quality.
In this new role, Steve will work with the senior management team to develop and execute sales strategies in the ANZ region, as Alcidion continues to grow and expand its global offering. Steve will also work with customers as they invest in their digital transformation, partnering with clinicians to implement smart technology that will bring benefits to the patients and to the teams delivering care.
Kate Quirke, Managing Director at Alcidion, said, ‘We are thrilled to welcome Steve to the Alcidion management team in ANZ. Steve’s leadership and proven track record of customer success, combined with his depth of knowledge of healthcare software, will be instrumental in driving our sales strategy forward and will ensure we are supporting healthcare organisations to leverage new investments in healthcare IT to enhance clinical workflows and patient outcomes.’
Steve said, ‘I am excited to join Alcidion at such a significant time. The need for an efficient and safe healthcare delivery system has never been stronger and Alcidion brings the very best in technology and health sector knowledge to deliver solutions that make healthcare safer and better for everyone.’
‘The most successful healthcare organisations at truly transforming the way they do digital are the ones who know the changes they make need to have a perpetual, not a transactional, lifespan. I look forward to working with the Alcidion leadership and sales teams in the region to support organisations throughout their health IT journey, as well as building strong relationships with other champions in the sector who are passionate about transforming the delivery of care.’
