Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of operational intelligence for healthcare, today announced the appointment of Shane Waslaski as President and Chief Executive Officer. Waslaski will also join the Board of Directors of Intelligent InSites.
Waslaski brings a proven leadership background in complex operations across the healthcare, manufacturing, infrastructure, and transportation industries, and he has served in various executive roles throughout his career, including President, CEO, COO, and Senior Vice President.
Most recently, Waslaski was President of Varistar, where he led a manufacturing and infrastructure business portfolio with 1,600 employees and revenues of more than $500M.

Prior to these roles, Waslaski held operational leadership positions in healthcare delivery organizations and consulted for a wide range of healthcare customers, including hospitals, clinics, and insurers.
“In our search for the next leader of Intelligent InSites, we sought a seasoned and dynamic executive with an exceptional understanding of healthcare operations,” said Doug Burgum, Executive Chairman of the Board and Interim President and CEO of Intelligent InSites. “Shane brings the ideal blend of proven leadership, customer focus, and operational intelligence, along with a breadth of expertise in lean principles and efficient healthcare delivery models.”

It will be a distinct honor to work with this talented team and our dedicated partners as we continue bringing our proven solution to this rapidly transforming industry.”
Waslaski’s appointment follows Intelligent InSites’ recent funding announcement from Health Insight Capital, a subsidiary of HCA, the world’s largest for-profit operator of healthcare facilities. Intelligent InSites’ customers also include the Veterans Health Administration, the nation’s largest integrated healthcare system, which is implementing the Intelligent InSites operational intelligence solution across 152 VA Medical Centers and seven Consolidated Medical Outpatient Pharmacy facilities, and Sanford Health, the nation’s largest not-for-profit rural healthcare system. Intelligent InSites is also expanding internationally, with customers such as Bumrungrad International Hospital, the first Asian hospital accredited by Joint Commission International.
