Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has named Vishal Agrawal, M.D., president of the company’s Healthcare Solutions business. He reports to James Morris, group president of Harris Integrated Network Solutions.

Agrawal, 38, is responsible for leading Harris Healthcare Solutions, a nationally recognized leader in clinical integration solutions. The business offers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, health information exchange, and imaging. Harris solutions improve healthcare quality, efficiency and outcomes by ensuring that the right information travels, with security and privacy, to the right person, at the right time, on the right device, at the point of care.

Agrawal brings to Harris more than 15 years experience developing strategies for and advising leading government and commercial healthcare organizations in North America. He joins Harris from McKinsey and Company, where he was a partner and leader in the firm’s North American Healthcare Systems and Services practice. While at McKinsey he significantly expanded the practice’s impact across public-sector and military healthcare, including successfully developing strategies to drive health system performance improvements.

Prior to his business career he served as a research fellow at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University.

He received a bachelor of science degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry and a master’s degree in molecular biophysics from Yale University, and a medical doctorate degree from Yale University School of Medicine. He is widely published and an active speaker on various healthcare, informatics, health insurance, and healthcare delivery system issues.

"Vishal’s medical expertise and in-depth knowledge of the government and commercial healthcare industry will be a tremendous asset to our Healthcare Solution’s business,” said William M. Brown, president and chief executive officer of Harris. “Our customers and shareholders will benefit from his extensive experience developing strategies to profitably drive healthcare performance improvements at all levels of the organization.”
