NASHVILLE, Tenn. – September 21, 2021 – Today, Relatient, Inc., the leading SaaS-based patient engagement platform, announces its board of directors has appointed Jeff Gartland as chief executive officer (CEO) effective immediately. Michele Perry, who served in the role since 2017, will step into the role of Vice-Chairman. Gartland brings more than 20 years of leadership experience in healthcare and technology to Relatient, which recently announced a $100M growth equity capital investment from Brighton Park Capital and its merger with Radix Health.

“Jeff is a trusted and well-respected pioneer in the healthcare information technology systems industry and brings decades of experience in growth strategies through innovation and go-to-market initiatives,” said Eric Spiegel, chairman of the board, Relatient. “We’re convinced Jeff’s experience positions him to serve a pivotal role in continuing the development of Relatient’s industry-leading patient engagement and access platform.”

Before joining Relatient, Gartland served as President of Anthem’s Advanced Analytics & Services division where he built a high-performing team leveraging technology to deliver scaled solutions to the healthcare ecosystem. Gartland had previously served as President at Ciox Health and held senior leadership roles at McKesson’s RelayHealth business building innovative solutions in the revenue cycle and clinical interoperability markets.

“I’ve dedicated my career to providing healthcare organizations with the technology needed to improve care, and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to continue this work through Relatient,” said Gartland. “Providing effective patient engagement and scheduling is of high importance for all healthcare organizations, and at Relatient, we’re going to continue to stay committed to providing a true industry-leading platform experience for providers and patients without shortcutting their complex and specific needs.”

Relatient recently merged with Radix Health, to provide the best all-in-one platform for patient engagement and scheduling.
