AUSTIN, Texas, May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Technology and consulting firm Headspring announces the launch of a new Healthcare division, with industry veteran Walt Hauck at the helm. Prior to joining Headspring, Walt served as VP of Worldwide Product Development for Haemonetics and Vice President, Global Technology for Pfizer.
Headspring’s CEO, Dustin Wells, explains the origin of the new business unit: “In our 20 years of building great software, we’ve worked with some of the best healthcare companies on projects that create real impact.

On past medical device projects, Headspring has partnered with Regulatory and Compliance leader, Validant.

Headspring’s culture of quality and really paying attention to the customer is a critical part of making safe, effective products.”
