Net Health announced that it has appointed Josh Pickus Chief Executive Officer. Anthony Sanzo, who served as Net Health’s CEO since 2012, becomes Executive Chairman as part of the planned transition and will lead Net Health through its next stage of growth. 

For the last 6 months, Pickus served as Net Health’s President and Chief Integration Officer following the acquisition of Optima Healthcare Solutions, where he served as CEO. Prior to Optima, Pickus was the CEO in Residence at Alpine Investors, a San Francisco-based private equity firm, and CEO of several Silicon Valley-based software companies, including Niku Corporation. He has also been a board member at numerous public and private software companies, including DemandTec and Conversica. 

“Over the months that passed since Net Health acquired Optima, Josh has again demonstrated the remarkable leadership qualities that were evident in his successful tenure as CEO of Optima,” Sanzo says in a media release.

“He is committed to meeting the needs of our customers as they deliver care to their patients in today’s challenging environment, and he brings the right balance of urgency and mission to our team. I enthusiastically welcome him to the board and applaud his promotion to CEO.”  

“I am excited to lead the next chapter in Net Health’s growth,” Pickus shares. “We have an extraordinary group of employees dedicated to serving providers doing some of the most important work in healthcare today.”

“Our commitment to those providers is to deliver solutions that enable them to provide exceptional patient experiences while navigating the ever-changing healthcare marketplace,” he adds. “We are dedicated to fulfilling our commitment to customers with even greater investment, innovation and urgency.”
