Peter Goltra, Founder and President
Peter Goltra is the founder and President of Medicomp Systems. An electrical engineer with a passion for improving healthcare delivery, Goltra has been a visionary in the field of medical informatics for more than 30 years and a driving force in the convergence of medicine and technology.
Goltra’s vision has always been to improve medical care by giving doctors a comprehensive system that enables them to electronically review and update medical records without compromising time with patients. By collaborating with physicians from Cornell, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and the Department of Defense, Goltra continuously expands and refines the company’s technology-based offerings to match the evolving and real-world needs of clinicians.
Goltra is the original architect and engineer of Medicomp’s clinical knowledge engine that is embedded in leading EHR systems. By using this powerful knowledge engine, physicians worldwide can share and update patient files. A resource of this caliber has the power to speed delivery of care, decrease prescription errors, reduce redundant lab tests, and eliminate medical inaccuracies resulting from lack of access to patients’ records.
David Lareau, Chief Executive Officer
David Lareau is Chief Executive Officer of Medicomp. Lareau joined Medicomp in 1995 and has responsibility for operations and product management, including customer relations and marketing. Prior to joining Medicomp, Lareau founded a company that installed management communication networks in large enterprises such as The World Bank, DuPont and Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. The Sinai Hospital project, one of the first PC-based LAN systems using email and groupware, was widely acknowledged as one of the largest and most successful implementations of this technology.
Lareau’s work at Sinai led to the founding of a medical billing company that led, in turn, to his partnership with Medicomp. Realizing that the healthcare industry made less use of information technology than almost any other industry, particularly in the area of clinical care, Lareau immediately saw the potential for Medicomp’s powerful technologies and joined the company to help fulfill Peter Goltra’s vision.
