Nancy Crotti at Medical Device + Diagnostic Industry featured ResMed's first Chief Technology Officer, newly hired Bobby Ghoshal. In her piece, Crotti emphasized how much ResMed has accomplished over the past few decades as a leader in sleep apnea devices – even without a CTO. Notably, the company was the first to introduce remote monitoring capabilities and data accessibility to its CPAP therapy devices, revolutionizing sleep apnea treatment for patients and providers.
"How did it do all this without a CTO?" Crotti asked. "Raj Sodhi, president of the company's software- as-a-service (SaaS) business and former head of healthcare informatics, had been serving as chief technology officer without the title, according to president and chief operating officer Rob Douglas. Sodhi has been ResMed's tech visionary and remains on the executive team, but the company wanted to strengthen its tech bench, Douglas explained. So, it brought back an old friend."
The company re-hired Ghoshal, who was ResMed's vice president of IT until 2016, to help lead the company forward into a new age of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other data technologies in order to provide the best possible outcomes for sleep and respiratory patients.
