Bethesda based IT consulting service provider, Digital Management Inc. has retained former National Institutes of Health executive Timothy Hays to lead its new Health-care IT practice. With only about 8% of the nation’s hospitals and 17% of physicians utilizing computerized record-keeping systems, the company hopes to position itself to find opportunities to provide services required by the $23 billion allocated to this sector in President Obama’s February stimulus package. “It’s ironic that while the U.S. is often at the forefront of advances in medical science and technology, our health-care IT systems lag behind, ” said Jay Sunny Bajaj, the CEO of Digital Management, adding that Hays will “play a vital role bringing our health-care IT systems into the 21st century.” During his time with NIH, Hays was project director for the NIH Research, Condition and Disease Categorization (RCDC) Project.
