Michael LaRocca

Founder & CEO

Michael leads the effort at Ready Computing, a passionate group of technologists exclusively focused on the creation, implementation, and management 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 starting 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 that 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 is also a “car guy” through and through. In addition to owning Ready Computing, Michael is the owner of Ready Motorsports Corporation and is also a proud member of the National Corvette Museum board of directors, where he serves as both the secretary and the chair of the business integration and technology committee.

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.
