“Empiric is committed to improving outcomes and the affordability of surgery,” said Rick Adam, CEO of Empiric Health. “Spiro Papadopoulos’ career in healthcare at Stanson Health (now Premier Inc.), Zynx Health, Siemens and GE Healthcare has ideally positioned him to accelerate our efforts in approaching health systems with our proven solution.”
