Waycross, GA (PRWEB)February 02, 2016
Global Partnership for TeleHealth (GPT), a charitable non-profit agency that promotes the establishment of telemedicine programs in underserved communities, announces that Rena Brewer succeeds Paula Guy as the organization’s Chief Executive Officer. Brewer will oversee the continued growth of GPT, as well as its affiliate organizations, including Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth, Alabama Partnership for TeleHealth and Florida Partnership for TeleHealth.
Former CEO, Paula Guy, has transitioned to the position of CEO for Salus Telehealth, Inc., a separate for-profit company that was formed based on GPT’s rich history of innovation and success within the telemedicine industry.
Rena Brewer has over 10 years of experience in building telemedicine networks across the Southeast United States. Prior to serving as the CEO of GPT, she served as the Director of the Southeastern TeleHealth Resource Center (SETRC), which is one of 14 federally funded (HRSA/OAT) regional and national resource centers with the mission of providing support/guidance to those wishing to implement telehealth services. Brewer also serves as the Director of the National School of Applied Telehealth, the online educational arm of SETRC that has provided telehealth training to over 700 national and international students to date. She is a Registered Nurse (RN) and holds a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Organizational Leadership from LaGrange College.
“It is an honor to succeed Paula Guy as the Chief Executive Officer for the Global Partnership for Telehealth. I wish Paula continued success in her new role as CEO of Salus Telehealth, Inc. GPT would not be what it is today without her tireless efforts and careful direction,” said Rena Brewer, CEO of Global Partnership for Telehealth. “2015 was an extraordinary year for our organization. Our past, current and future successes can be credited to our expert team members, our innovative partnering sites and providers, and the on-going, strong support from local, state, and federal officials. We are very optimistic that 2016 will be our best year yet.”
Under Brewer’s direction, GPT will continue to serve as the top not-for-profit telehealth network in the country and work to expand its existing school-based, skilled nursing facility, hospital and worksite telehealth programs. In 2016, GPT will also focus on promoting the benefits of telehealth within the consumer market and further supporting current GPT partners to expand their service lines where possible.
