Computer Task Group has hired a George Washington University official and a healthcare technology executive as the new head of its healthcare and life sciences business, the Buffalo-based information technology company said Monday.
The hiring of Alfred Hamilton, which will take effect on July 22, fills a void created two months ago following the resignation in late May of Ted Reynolds, who previously headed the healthcare business.
CTG’s healthcare unit had been a fast-growing and highly profitable part of the company’s business, but it has sagged in the last couple of years as cash-strapped hospitals have cut back on programs to install costly electronic medical records systems.
Hamilton, 49, currently is the senior advisor for the associate provost for military and veterans affairs at George Washington. He also teaches various health information technology courses and has been president and CEO at his own consulting business, Technology Consulting Solutions, since 2010. He retired from the U.S. Army Medical Department in 2010 as a lieutenant colonel.
