Partner Spotlight: Geoff Roten, Healthcare IT Strategy Advisor

New Pivot Point Consulting Partner Geoff Roten provides consulting expertise in a variety of areas related to healthcare IT planning, strategy and transformation. He brings 25 years of experience working in for-profit and not-for-profit health institutions, government agencies and technology companies to his new position.

Geoff’s work history includes leadership roles as chief information officer at MEDHOST, a senior healthcare consultant at IBM and IT director in multiple provider organizations. He most recently served as executive managing partner at NorthStar Technology Consulting. To date Geoff has successfully led HIT design and implementation projects in more than 70 hospitals.

Geoff sees healthcare IT strategy and roadmap development as vital components of success for U.S. healthcare facilities, particularly as the industry segues to value-based care. He counts the proper alignment of technology solutions with specific business objectives and the cultivation of specialized staffing and cross-functional teams as crucial elements in HIT planning.

“My goal in healthcare IT is to act as a change agent helping providers get from one point of IT maturity to another,” says Roten. “Transformational leadership is necessary to accomplish strategic and tactical change, which can often be more complicated than the actual technology itself. I hope to help address the needs I see in the market related to helping providers navigate the tech underpinnings, service delivery and data management aspects of a rapidly evolving industry.”
