Chart Solutions is committed to the focused application of its knowledge and experience to identify client issues and solve them.

The company was founded in 1999 to fill a business void. Too often companies fail to create a viable business strategy and infrastructure to support their vision. Or on the flipside they don’t have a vision beyond their next customer. Chart Solutions has the ability to see the vision, develop or refine a strategy and assist in the execution. We also help define a vision and strategy to support an existing company in transition.

Chart Solutions was founded by John Tortorici who has over thirty years of experience in IT and executive management. Most recently John was (interim) Executive Director of the Oregon Bioscience Association and prior to that he served as (interim) President of the Software Association of Oregon.  For three years before its acquisition by WebMD, he had been a Vice President at WellMed Inc, with roles including Operations, Marketing and Strategic Business Affairs. 

Prior to joining WellMed John was Vice President and General Manager of the Blood Bank Division of Mediware Information Systems Inc. (NASDAQ MEDW) a health information systems company which had acquired John’s company in 1998. 

Since its inception in 1980 John had been founder Chairman and CEO of Informedics, Inc, (formerly known as Western Star, Inc.).  Informedics provided medical laboratory software to healthcare customers in six countries.  The Company completed an IPO in 1983 and made three strategic acquisitions before merging with Mediware.
John’s career in information systems dates back to Burroughs Corporation where, as an Account Manager in San Francisco he headed a team of professionals who sold and serviced mainframe computers.  He then moved to Raytheon Data Systems as the Western Regional Manager and, prior to founding Western Star, John was the Bay Area Manager for Durango Systems, Inc. a manufacturer and distributor of business computers.
