Riskonnect, the leader of enterprise-wide risk management technology, continues to expand its healthcare capabilities with the addition of Jay Lechtman to its healthcare team.

Lechtman left a leadership position at healthcare incident reporting system vendor Quantros to join Riskonnect as senior director, market strategy and development, where he will oversee market and product strategy for Riskonnect’s rapidly-growing healthcare business.

Riskonnect provides innovative technology to help healthcare providers manage claims; streamline and automate processes surrounding patient, visitor and employee safety and reporting; and perform root cause analysis in order to identify problems and develop solutions.

“Improving safety and reducing risk is challenging,” said Lechtman. “Riskonnect has shown me — and is showing the industry — that the systems used to manage those risks can make it easier. I’m excited to be able to assist in the growth of solutions that can help our healthcare risk management clients and their patients without the traditional limitations of HIT.”

“The addition of Jay to our healthcare team will further strengthen Riskonnect as a leader in the healthcare space. His expertise and background are an ideal match for propelling us toward meeting the goals we have set for expansion within this segment of the industry,” said Roger Dunkin, vice president of applications and platform for Riskonnect.

At Quantros, Lechtman was instrumental in developing patient safety and risk management solutions for ambulatory and retail pharmacy settings, adding Walmart and Target pharmacies and clinics as clients. He led strategic and partnership efforts in EHR integration, offering provider-reported, evidence-based safety data to drug and device manufacturers and developing and managing the company’s Patient Safety Organization and related technologies.

Prior to Quantros, Lechtman led product, market and partnership development and strategic planning for a number of healthcare information services firms, including Ingenix (now Optum), a division of UnitedHealth Group. He holds a Bachelor’s in writing from The Johns Hopkins University and a Master’s in Communications (Print Journalism) from Stanford University.
