We are excited to welcome John Eads to the Incredible Health team as Vice President of Sales.
John is a healthcare veteran, with more than 25 years of experience building and managing successful sales teams. His experience includes 12 years at athenahealth, where his team’s exponential revenue growth led the company to IPO on NASDAQ.
We sat down with John to hear about his background and why he’s excited to join the Incredible Health team.
How did you get your start in sales?
I started my career selling physician practice management systems and Electronic Medical Records to physicians groups. I then became a partner at Salcris Systems that grew to become the largest Physician Revenue Cycle software technology company in the Southern U.S. Fast forward some 25 years later, and the majority of my career has been spent building and managing sales teams in healthcare technology.
What brought you to Incredible Health?
I have taken multiple startups public, most notably athenahealth, and was looking for the next healthcare technology company that I could help grow into a global brand. Incredible Health was an obvious choice for me. We are fundamentally changing how experienced nurses and hospital systems come together to provide excellent patient care. I was very impressed with Incredible Health’s leadership, the marketplace technology, and how much nurses and health systems love the platform.
What industry trends are you watching most closely?
I am watching the heroic effort frontline healthcare workers are making during the pandemic, and the effect it has on nurse retention rates and employment trends. I am also watching the surge in digital health, from healthcare marketplaces, to telehealth, which is driving even more need for registered nurses and nurse practitioners.
What are your team’s priorities this year?
We are focused on growth. Incredible Health has built a solid foundation of delighted nurses and hospital system clients. Both groups give us 5-star ratings for drastically reducing the time and effort it takes to find a job and hire experienced, permanent nurses. We are building on that foundation and strategically growing our customer base across the country.
Have you had an experience with a nurse that made a positive impact on you?
I have been in healthcare for many years and have seen firsthand that nurses are the face of compassionate care, and they’re the backbone of every health system. The evolving roles of nurses are essential to the digital healthcare future.
