iSoft’s former KPMG board member departs

Beleaguered healthcare software group
– the company providing software to the
NHS – has seen its chief technology officer,
Ravi Kumar, quit the company with immediate effect.

Kumar, who was also a board member and one of iSoft’s founding management
team members, resigned by mutual agreement, the company said in a statement.

He joined KPMG’s healthcare information systems business in 1992 and was part
of the original management team involved in the buy-out from KPMG in 1998, from
which iSOFT was formed.

As the company will be focused on product delivery for the next two to three
years, iSoft said his post would not be filled at the present time.
