The University of Missouri Healthcare Management and Informatics Alumni Board is happy to announce our first Virtual Fall Institute. Fall Institute is our yearly event where we bring alumni back to connect with students while offering further education and great presentations by some of our most accomplished alumni.

Gail Peace is a health care executive and entrepreneur with more than 25 years of industry experience. Ludi’s signature software DocTime Log® is Gail’s brainchild, having developed the platform in response to a significant yet unmet need she identified during her years as a health system executive. Gail initially bootstrapped the company and then raised money herself at a time when female entrepreneurs received very little funding in health care. In less than 10 years, Gail has taken Ludi from two employees to more than 20, and from one client to now over 250 hospital clients nationwide, including some of the largest health systems in America. Prior to founding Ludi in 2012 she served as Vice President for Business Development at Vanguard Health Chicago (acquired by Tenet in 2013). Gail has also served in leadership roles at WebMD, Chicago-based Subimo (acquired by WebMD in 2006), MacNeal Hospital and Sachs Group (now Truven Health).
