Yardley, PA, January 19,2022 — Intraprise Health, a leader in healthcare cybersecurity, information risk management and compliance, today announced that George Pappas has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer. The company also announced a strategic growth investment from Health Enterprise Partners and Bluff Point Associates – two private equity firms that invest in healthcare companies.
Pappas, a healthcare technology veteran, most recently served as Chief Customer Officer and Chief Operating Officer at DrFirst, a medication management company. Prior to his time at DrFirst, Pappas served as Chief Operating Officer of Motionsoft, a fitness industry software company.
According to Pappas, “I’m thrilled to be joining Intraprise Health as it continues its upward growth in the healthcare risk management arena. The company’s deep roots in healthcare security services make their integrated risk management software compelling for organizations that struggle with the cost and effort needed to safeguard their operations from cyber attacks. I am excited about our wide-reaching security solutions portfolio and the investment from both HEP and Bluff Point which will help lay the foundation for continued growth and innovation.”
Healthcare organizations have increasingly become the target of malicious actors – resulting in threats to patient care, loss of revenue, massive business interruption and regulatory penalties. Cybersecurity is a top priority for the entire healthcare sector – from business associates to health plans to hospitals and provider practices.
Kevin Fahey Managing Director of Bluff Point Associates, said, “Intraprise Health has all the necessary ingredients to continue to lead the market in software-based security and privacy solutions; our investment supports that belief. Intraprise Health is uniquely positioned to become the leading provider of healthcare security solutions enabled by a team of experienced cybersecurity professionals. We are excited to support George as he leads Intraprise Health forward.”
Pappas is active in CHIME and is a member of their CFCHE program. He holds a patent in sales risk management and is a graduate of Boston University.
