Recondo Strengthens and Expands with Healthcare IT Veterans
Recondo Technology (Recondo), the leading provider of cloud-based revenue cycle connectivity and applications, today announced the addition of three healthcare industry veterans to its leadership team as part of an aggressive go-to-market strategy.
- Alicia Hanson joins as Senior Vice President of Business Development, following her tenure as Senior Vice President of Revenue Cycle for MedAssets. Hanson is a seasoned healthcare professional who brings to her role more than 15 years of revenue cycle experience and a wealth of market knowledge and industry relationships.
- Jamie Oakes joins as Regional Vice President of Sales, from Adreima, where he served as Vice President of Business Development. Oakes is an accomplished healthcare information system (HIS) and sales leader with tenure at leading revenue cycle and HIS companies.
- Kevin Kenny joins as Vice President of Strategic Sales/East. Kenny is a tenured HIS and revenue cycle sales executive with extensive experience in the Northeast marketplace.
The announcement comes shortly after Recondo appointed veteran healthcare executive Jay Deady as its new Chief Executive Officer and Ralph Keiser as the new Chief Growth Officer. In addition, Recondo announced in January that the Recondo Reconbot™ solution has received full U.S. patent status. Recondo’s go-to-market growth strategy is in response to growing market demand for its solutions as more hospitals seek human-touchless patient access and claims processing technology to speed upfront cash flow, lower claims denial rates, and reduce costs.
“Alicia is well-known in the industry and enjoys an impressive track record of increasing sales effectiveness and forging positive client and business partner relationships for well-recognized vendors in our industry,” said Jay Deady, Chief Executive Officer, Recondo. “She will work closely with Ralph and the rest of the executive team as Recondo continues to create and launch innovative solutions to help our clients’ transition to new payment models and achieve immediate positive financial impact for their organizations. Similarly, Jamie and Kevin also have the experience, market knowledge and HIT expertise that are critical to understanding each client’s unique business needs and ensuring they receive the full benefit of their investment in Recondo’s solutions as they transition to value-based care. I am positive the talent, creativity, and experience each of these leaders brings to their roles will propel our company forward as we continue to leverage the strong market opportunity.” Alicia, Jaime, and Kevin will all report directly to Ralph Keiser, Recondo’s Chief Growth Officer.

Prior to this role at MedAssets, she served as their Assistant Vice President of Revenue Cycle, overseeing sales teams, defining new processes and tools, and identifying target accounts.
