Net Health has quadrupled its workforce and more than tripled its revenue during the past three years as medical practices increasingly go digital.
The Strip District-based software company, which employs more than 200 people, is growing quickly because outpatient specialty providers, such as urgent care centers, wound care centers and physical therapists, need electronic medical record systems tailored specifically for them and their practices, CEO Anthony Sanzo said.
It’s growth that Sanzo expects to continue as the company pursues larger clients, such as national for-profit health companies and nonprofit university-based health systems that are diversifying their operations beyond the traditional hospital by building or acquiring specialty outpatient facilities.
Sanzo, who’s been chief executive since November 2011, discussed the company’s future during a recent interview at its office. He’s preparing for an expansion of the office, which will add two more floors to the one the company currently occupies.
Trib: What is driving your growth?
Sanzo: I’ll start with the fact that we’ve broadened our scope of products. When we talked very early we talked about a company that was centered in the provision of principally an electronic medical record to the outpatient chronic wound business. That’s a marketplace that’s only so large. So we entered into the occupational medicine and urgent care space. We entered into the employee health space. We entered into what we call the therapy space — that is physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology.
Trib: Are you looking to expand into any other market segments?
Sanzo: Today, our focus is on expanding into the markets into which we currently sell. However, we believe as we do that, if we find another market that makes sense, we also will expand into that market.
