Thank you Tarmac for underwriting our Meet a Minnesota Tech CTO series, where we get up close and personal with Minnesota’s chief techies!

John Orosco is the CTO of Minneapolis-based Sansoro Health, makers of the Emissary platform for exchanging real-time health care data between digital health applications and electronic medical records.

How long have you been working in tech for and what is your technical background?

When I started my college career, I wanted to be an accountant until I started taking accounting classes and quickly realized that was not the path for me. I then turned my attention to business management and computer science.

I enjoyed the programming classes a great deal and completed my degree in Management Information Systems at Iowa State in 1998. I joined Cerner Corporation as a software engineer after graduation which is where my professional career began. I have been in healthcare information technology ever since.

What are you focused on right now?
