Michael LaRocca

Founder & CEO

Michael leads the effort at Ready Computing, a passionate group of technologists exclusively focused on the creation, implementation, and operation of innovative IT solutions. Michael’s expertise includes a thorough understanding of the healthcare IT standards, protocols, technologies, and architectures prescribed by the Office of the National Coordinator (“ONC”) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (“CMS”), Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (”IHE”), the Health Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), Health Level 7 (”HL7”), the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (”NCPDP”), and the Accredited Standards Committee (”ASC”).

Prior to launching Ready Computing in July 2011, Michael worked at InterSystems Corporation for nearly 16 years. As Senior Product Manager, Michael was not only responsible for the strategic direction, functional role, technical design, and overall adoption of HealthShare worldwide but also served as a senior developer who created core HealthShare components such as the IHE and CDA adapters. Michael was the Health Information Exchange “domain expert” within InterSystems and represented the company in key sales calls, marketing events, press interviews, technical workgroups, and other public activities. Michael also designed and executed the internal sales and technical training on HIE and HealthShare.

In addition to his focus on healthcare IT, Michael also leads several other initiatives. As a “car guy” through and through, Michael is the owner of Ready Motorsports Corporation and is also a proud member of the National Corvette Museum board of directors, where he currently serves as the Chair Elect as well as the Chair for the operations and nominating committees. Additionally, Michael leads Ready Cares, a foundation focused on elevating underserved communities as well as the organizations and individuals that serve them.

Michael is a strong believer that all relationships are built on trust. This is a core value of Ready Computing that extends from Michael to all corners of the Ready family.
