“Leading CORL and Meditology has been truly rewarding, and I am excited to shift my sole focus to enhancing the value we deliver to our diverse customer base while supporting Mikael as he guides the company into its next chapter,” Baker said.

“Cybersecurity is a top-of-mind issue across the healthcare ecosystem, one that offers tremendous opportunity for CORL and Meditology to bring real value to our clients. By reinventing key elements of cybersecurity management, our innovative services and solutions empower healthcare organizations to mitigate the overwhelming security threats they face on a daily basis,” said Öhman. “I’m excited for this opportunity to continue to build on what is already a strong business and further help healthcare providers, payers, vendors, and patients remain safe from cyber attacks.”
