Allscripts, a Chicago-based electronic medical-records systems vendor, has named Donato Tramuto, a veteran of the pharmaceutical service industry, to head its Physician Interactive electronic drug-detailing and pharmaceutical marketing-research unit.
Tramuto "will lead the strategic expansion of the Physicians Interactive business model into new markets within the pharmaceutical and managed healthcare marketplace and accelerate the introduction of a number of new products and services scheduled to be released over the next six months," Allscripts said in a news release.
Tramuto is the former chief executive officer of i3, a pharmaceutical services company that is part of the Ingenix division of UnitedHealth Group. Before that, he was a founder of Protocare, a drug development services provider, and served as vice president of marketing at Caremark Rx, a pharmacy benefits management company.
"I am committed to the idea that advanced technology, when coupled with real-time data, provides a unique opportunity to create information products that help physicians, pharmaceutical organizations, and managed-care organizations," Tramuto said in the statement. "I believe that Allscripts is poised to deliver on this unique combination, and I look forward to helping the company build on that strong position."
Allscripts says it serves 46 pharmaceutical, biotech and medical-device companies, including nine of the top 10 major pharmaceutical firms though its Physician Interactive unit, which operates in nine countries and the United States. -- By Joseph Conn / HITS staff writer
