As Cerner co-founder in 1979, Paul Gorup was instrumental in shaping the company and positioning it for rapid growth. He played a pivotal role in developing Cerner’s first widely available product offering. Later, as vice president of application data services, he launched Cerner’s data services business. Today, that business line supports the complete outsourcing of client IT departments and operations. Beginning in 2004 as chief of innovation, Gorup also launched and managed many of Cerner’s new business segments that have successfully supported clients in achieving the top quartile for high performance hospitals and healthcare systems in all categories.
An inveterate entrepreneur, Mr. Gorup left Cerner from 1987 to 1999 to co-found Broadcast Data Systems, which he helped to grow into one of the largest commercial electronic broadcast monitoring systems in the world. The company was later acquired by Nielsen in 1998.
Mr. Gorup was named to the Entrepreneur Hall of Fame and as a Henry W. Bloch International Entrepreneur of the Year by the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Currently he is an independent consultant.
“Throughout my healthcare career, which I launched at Cerner, Paul Gorup has inspired me to develop and innovate. As a co-founder of Cerner, Paul has immense experience in revolutionizing the healthcare IT space, particularly in his role as chief of innovation at Cerner. Mr. Gorup will be able to provide unparalleled guidance to CAREier as we work together to standardize medical device tracking, revolutionize healthcare, and streamline processes for providers, manufacturers, and patients alike. I welcome him to the CAREier team.”Ryan Bass – CAREier CEO
