By August 14, 2019 New Employee

We are excited to have four new experienced technical resources join our family!

Chris Koutras joins SMC as a Technical Consultant with 5 years of experience developing software and consulting for government revenue agencies. He graduated from Gonzaga University with degrees in Mathematics and Economics. Since graduating, he has worked with federal, state, and local agencies in Mississippi, Arkansas, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, and Kentucky. Chris is an avid skier and is looking forward to snow and cold temperatures come winter.

John Brigham joins us as a Technical Consultant after working as a technology teacher for a private school for wayward young men.  Prior to teaching, John worked on interfacing diagnostic laboratory equipment for a lab middleware company.  He also worked for Partners Healthcare for over 10 years.  While at Partners, John was involved with several large scale interfacing projects in an effort to convert the lab system at Brigham and Women’s, (yes, he _is_ related), to Sunquest/EPIC system.  John also supported the offsite test ordering system, the Radiology Department, and the billing system that linked with the lab system on several levels.  John has also worked as a development programmer and as a consultant for IDX (now GE) healthcare systems.  John enjoys golf but isn’t very good at it, apparently fresh air and sunshine is the draw.  John was born in Newport, VT and has been skiing since he was 5.  (That works out to 7 years.  7 dog years.)  John is very excited about joining the SMC Partners team.

Mathew Josey joins SMC as a Senior Technical Analyst.  He has 4 years of work experience as a software developer.  Mathew worked as a .Net Developer for Traverze Ltd, India, in designing custom software solutions.  He recently moved to Hartford and is an automobile enthusiast.  Mathew loves sports, particularly track events. Back in his school days, Mathew was a state record holder for the 400m and also won gold for 4×400 relay at the National level.

Ravindra Duddu joins SMC Partners as a Technical Solution Architect.  He has 20 years of healthcare system integrations and interfaces experience working for hospitals, laboratories, RHIO & HIE.  Ravi has a B.Tech in Electronics and Communications Engineering from India and an MS in Computer Science from the US.  He most recently worked as an HL7 & IHE Specifications Consultant for Deloitte.  In his spare time, Ravi enjoys family time, reading and watching comedy sitcoms.
