It is a natural step for me to build on the work I’ve done connecting siloed pockets of healthcare providers and enabling more effective distribution of life sciences support.”

He has established partnerships with more than 245 EHR platforms, 100 specialty pharma partners and five communications partners to bring life sciences resources to more places at the point-of-care.
Campano received a bachelor’s degree in bioinformatics from Rutgers University. He was inducted into the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame in 2014 as a Future Hall of Famer, and was the recipient of the PM360’s ELITE Innovator Award in 2017.
