    An industry leader, spokesman and lobbyist, Roger L. (Vern) Davenport has three decades of senior executive experience in building and transforming healthcare IT businesses in the United States and globally. Most recently he was CEO of Misys Healthcare and led the strategic merger of Misys Healthcare Solutions and Allscripts, creating the U.S. market leader in acute and ambulatory clinical information systems. With a successful organizational leadership track record in taking difficult situations and executing rapid performance turnarounds, Davenport was a key figure in executing the successful Allscripts merger with Misys Healthcare Solutions. When Davenport joined Misys in 2007, the company had flat margins, declining bookings and eroding customer satisfaction and revenue. Davenport led a strategy to stabilize the company by selling off various business lines and implemented and executed a world-class management system. After the merger's completion, Davenport handled the establishment of a Public and Payer Sector, which focused on payer provider integration and State Medicaid transformations. Davenport has a broad range of experience across the entire healthcare IT spectrum including radiology, modalities and software technology. He has worked for IBM, Shared Medical Systems, Kodak and Siemens Medical Solutions, where he performed a major merger similar to that he managed for Allscripts and Misys. Davenport has been named one of the "50 Most Powerful People in N.C. Business." He earned a bachelor's degree and an MBA from East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C.
