eHealth Records International of Sebastopol, California, the makers of HarmoniMD, has hired Israel Escudero Galeana to head up worldwide sales with a focus on Latin America. A long-time resident of Petaluma, Mr. Escudero has many years of experience in technology sales to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Sebastopol, CA September 1, 2016:  eHealth Records International (EHRI) engages in the delivery of low-cost hospital information systems in the developing world with recent implementations in hospitals in Tanzania and Kenya, and is currently exploring opportunities in other African countries.

“Working in Central and South America is a logical step in our evolution,” says Nick Smith, CEO and founder of EHRI. “For the past five years we have been very focused on product development and are now more involved in getting HarmoniMD into the worldwide market for hospital information systems. Israel is a great addition to our team because of his background in introducing new products to the market.”

Besides his successful business career, Escudero has been recognized for his community involvement in Petaluma, especially for his organization of the annual El Día de los Muertos and the Petaluma Museum. An avid cook, Israel has consistently won awards with his traditional mole, a dish made with chiles and chocolate which is often served on festive occasions. Like the founders of EHRI, Escudero is very engaged in giving back to the community that helped him develop a home in the U.S. Having arrived from his native Mexico City at the age of 17, Escudero graduated from Petaluma High and started his career as a graphic designer there.

“When I first came to the U.S., the culture shock was overwhelming but I got a lot of help from people around me and now have the opportunity to give back, so being involved with the community seems very natural,” Escudero said.

eHealth Records International was founded by Nick Smith, Dan Smith (no relation) and Dr. James Gude, a pioneer in telemedicine and founder of OffSiteCare Resources, a Sebastopol-based telemedicine company. Gude is also a founder of Global OffSiteCare, a Rotary program aimed at providing physician consultations and education to developing-world hospitals. Dan Smith is the founder of The Master Builder, a construction management software system sold to Intuit in 2001.
