Three notes:

1. Ms. Murphy most recently served as Microsoft's director of federal health solutions.

2. With more than 20 years of experience at Microsoft, Ms. Murphy held various technology and clinical informatics leadership roles, including CTO for Microsoft's federal health and benefits team.

3. In February, GlobalMed's virtual care platform became available on Microsoft's cloud platform Azure.

"We're thrilled to welcome [Ms. Murphy] aboard as our new CTO," GlobalMed Founder and CEO Joel Barthelemy, said in a news release. "…She understands all sides of the equation.
