Franklin, Tenn., November 28, 2017 – Relatient, a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) company focused on optimizing patient engagement, today announced that it has appointed Michele Perry as chief executive officer. With more than 25 years of experience in software and health technology, Perry has a proven track record for scaling growth stage companies quickly and successfully. Her appointment will accelerate the expansion of Relatient’s messaging-based solutions, enabling physician groups, hospitals and health systems to decrease no-show rates, increase overall operational efficiency, and deliver better patient experiences.

“I am honored to lead the Relatient team and continue to build on the success they have already achieved in the patient outreach and engagement market,” said Michele Perry. “Relatient’s strong customer base, innovative solutions and talented team provide a phenomenal foundation for us to achieve this next phase of growth and realize the company’s vision to bridge the communication gap between patients and providers with a patient-centered approach to engagement and outreach.” 

Perry joined Relatient’s board earlier this year, concurrently with an investment from Elsewhere Partners, where she serves as an Operating Advisor. She has held leadership and board positions with numerous software and health technology companies over the last two decades. Perry has participated in three initial public offerings (IPOs) including Sourcefire (FIRE), USinternetworking (USIX) and Unify (UNIFY), as well as multiple mergers and acquisitions, which have generated billions of dollars in enterprise value and investor returns. 

“Michele brings a unique ability to translate vision and strategy into tactical execution,” said Jim Sohr, chairman of the board. “In her previous leadership positions at market-leading SaaS companies such as Sourcefire and GetWellNetwork, Michele demonstrated that she understands our market, technology, and customers, and will drive the company to capitalize on opportunities that lie ahead.”

Perry has an undergraduate degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s of Business Administration from Harvard Business School.
