Chief Technology Officer

As Chief Technology Officer, Ted is responsible for Paradigm’s Information Technology footprint.  He has taken Paradigm Oral Health from a small group of individual, siloed practices to a stable, scalable, and secure enterprise system. Ted works closely with the clinical experts to ensure the team has access to the latest and best clinical technology, and to determine how best to support their work-flow and contribute to successful patient care. Leveraging a mix of internal resources and strategic outsourcing, he designs, manages, and supports all aspects of Paradigm technology: enterprise design, infrastructure, software platforms, security, communications, business continuity, support, procurement, integrations, education and training, polices and best practices, and vendor management. Paradigm IT also supports certain aspects of the clinical infrastructure, including practice admin/EHR systems, patient and referral communication, imaging, and inventory management technology. 

With 20+ years of experience in Information Technology, Ted Timmerman brings a wealth of expertise to the Paradigm team. Ted has contributed to the success of companies at every stage of business development, from start-ups to Fortune 500 enterprises. In 2010 he founded Vero IT, a successful IT service provider based out of Chicago, IL. As CEO he oversaw technology implementations across a wide array of industries, including health care, legal, manufacturing, logistics, and professional services. He brings this depth of experience and vision to his role as Chief Technology Officer for Paradigm Oral Health. 

In his spare time, Ted enjoys travel, exercise, cooking, and spending time with his family. An avid Cubs fan resulting from a military childhood spent watching WGN, Ted still plays baseball and coaches his son’s youth team. His philanthropic activities center around cancer research and mental health.
