ResMed has hired its first chief technology officer (CTO), Bobby Ghoshal.
As CTO, Ghoshal will lead ResMed’s global healthcare informatics and data analytics team to drive its cloud-based digital health platforms as well as investments in emerging health technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Ghoshal has more than 25 years’ experience in information technology, semiconductor innovation, digital strategy, information security, advanced analytics, operations, and customer care. Since 2016, Ghoshal has been chief operating officer at Brightree, a ResMed-owned provider of cloud-based software-as-a-service for out-of-hospital care. From 2012 to 2016, he was vice president of information technology at ResMed. Previously, Ghoshal worked in a number of management and technical roles in the semiconductor and financial industries.
“Bobby has played several key roles in ResMed’s emergence as a world-leading connected health company this past decade, and we’re excited to appoint him as our new CTO,” says ResMed CEO Mick Farrell, in a release. “I have worked with Bobby for many years and he has incredible energy, integrity, intelligence, and an always-learning attitude that will guide ResMed’s emerging competence in artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep neural networks, and other data analytics technologies to change the lives of millions more patients.”
Ghoshal says, “I’m excited to lead ResMed’s extraordinary healthcare informatics team to help drive the value of connected health, leveraging the power of technology and data for the hundreds of millions of people who suffer from sleep apnea, COPD, and related chronic diseases worldwide.”
ResMed’s Healthcare Informatics team had been led by Raj Sodhi, current president of ResMed’s software-as-a-service businesses, pioneering out-of-hospital software growth globally.
“I’m excited for Bobby’s return to the ResMed team,” Sodhi says. “With Bobby as CTO, I can be fully focused on expanding the capabilities of ResMed’s SaaS solutions for out-of-hospital care, while Bobby leads the next level of tech innovation, investments, and partnerships that will take our digital health capabilities to new frontiers, for the ultimate benefit of patients, physicians, providers, and payers.”
