Ron Roma is always a step ahead of the rest in his industry, especially when it comes to finding ways to better serve the interests of his customers and employees.
Even from his early days as a student in the pharmacy field, Roma saw the benefit of being able to make pharmacy benefit management processes more efficient, from creating and streamlining computer systems to cutting costs or translating paper transactions into electronic services. So after selling his first company, which created processing systems for pharmacy chains and the PBM industry, and taking off several years to travel the world, Roma never lost his passion for being an entrepreneur. When he was approached by one of the largest payers of workers’ compensation in the U.S., Roma soon was on his way to launching Healthesystems LLC as the first fully integrated workers’ compensation prescription solution. He knew he had more to do.
As a breakthrough pharmacy management program for the workers’ compensation industry, Healthesystems uses advanced technology to provide customized solutions for customers. It is also an industry innovator as the first PBM company designed specifically for the worker’s compensation industry. Under Roma’s leadership, Healthesystems has grown to provide pharmacy services to more than 1.5 million injured workers.
When the economy had many health care companies downsizing, Roma knew that his people were the key to his company’s continued success. During this time, he’s actually doubled Healthesystems’ payroll, hiring 80 employees in 2009. Starting out with seven employees in 2002, the company now employs 300 people. With these additional employees he’s ensured that Healthesystems has the flexibility to take on the challenges ahead and keep providing top service to customers. With the goal of meeting both the needs of his customers and the career objectives of his employees, Roma continues to improve his company and industry from the inside and out.
