A med-tech leader of note is taking skills refined at Amazon, the FDA and the CDC to GE HealthCare, where he will serve as the newly independent company’s first CTO, the company announced Jan. 5.

Taha Kass-Hout, MD, MS, a cardiologist, bio-statistician and informaticist, arrives at GE HealthCare from Amazon and AWS, where his titles included chief medical officer and vice president of machine learning.

As chief technology officer, Kass-Hout will report to GE HealthCare president and CEO Peter Arduini, focusing on heading and building the company’s new “D3” strategy.

This the healthcare giant defines as a “framework and digital products that emphasize the company’s smart devices, aligned to disease states and enabled by digital” to facilitate precision care.
