Belmont alumna Carla Wood was recently appointed to president of Altos Solutions, a web-based software company specializing in community-based oncology practices.
“Carla Wood brings to our company an impressive experience in both the oncology industry in general and in Altos Solutions specifically, “ said co-founder and CEO of Altos Solutions, John Willey II. “Her thorough knowledge of customer needs and the oncology industry are a perfect fit for leading Altos to greater product development and market share.”
Wood has had her share of contributions during her time at Altos. She assisted in establishing both the customer support and training departments, while working closely with the product development team. She pioneered the use of electronic medical record (EMR)-based alerts to provide on-label clinical information directly to the physician, as well as defined and managed the first certification of an oncology EMR.
“Throughout my tenure at Altos, I’ve seen the leading edge thinking and product development to which the company is committed,” Woods said. “I am looking forward to leading Altos Solutions in the ongoing enhancement of cancer care in the U.S.”
Wood received her first degree at Belmont in 1985, then continued on to the University of Memphis for her B.S. and M.S. in psychology. Although Wood stayed in Memphis and worked in oncology for 13 years she says she still considers Belmont her college home.
