“Netsmart is a unique combination of an established company with decades of healthcare IT experience, and a forward-thinking company with innovative solutions for coordinated, integrated care,” said Byers. “I’m pleased to join the board and help Netsmart scale to meet the needs of its clients as they provide services to some our country’s most vulnerable populations.”
