Microsoft Veteran Shannon Murphy Joins GlobalMed as Chief Technology Officer

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – April 10, 2019—GlobalMed, an international provider of virtual care solutions, today announced that Shannon Murphy has joined as Chief Technology Officer.

Murphy most recently served as Microsoft Corp.’s Director of Federal Health Solutions. During her 20+ years with Microsoft, she held multiple technology and clinical informatics leadership roles, including serving as the company’s Federal Health Architect as well as Chief Technology Officer for Microsoft’s Federal Health and Benefits Team. In addition to serving as the voice of health IT for Microsoft at the federal government level, Murphy was responsible for the technical leadership, solution architecture, and development of sustainable and repeatable business success across many different Federal customers.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Shannon aboard as our new CTO,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, founder and CEO of GlobalMed, noting that the company’s virtual care platform recently became available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. “She has handled some of the largest and most difficult integration projects including those involving tactical systems, manned vehicle networks, and shipboard systems. She has put Active Directory everywhere from rural development offices for the USDA to the back of Humvees for the US Army, and even the bottom of the sea with MBARI.”

Barthelemy added that Murphy’s strong working relationships across Microsoft Corp. are an important value-add for GlobalMed, a Microsoft Gold Partner and one of the first Federal Independent Software Vendors (ISV) for Microsoft.

“She understands all sides of the equation,” he said. “Azure, the larger Microsoft world, as well as payers, government entities, vendors, and the communities and providers who rely on Microsoft’s technology to help deliver needed care and improve patients’ lives.”

Prior to her most recent positions, Murphy held multiple engineering and management roles during her 20+ years with Microsoft, is the recipient of over 25 different formal Microsoft awards and is a Navy Veteran.

“I had an unparalleled opportunity to change the world during my 23 years with Microsoft—and as CTO of GlobalMed, the opportunity to affect change is even more significant. Virtual care is the future of medicine, something that will touch and improve the lives of all patients, and I am delighted to be joining the GlobalMed team,” Murphy said.
