Sheryl J. Cherico is CEO/COO, and Owner of Tier3MD. Sheryl’s career began in 1979 and is considered one of the top healthcare IT consultants in the country. In Western New York, she started out in medical billing, AR collections, and practice workflow for a Thoracic surgery group, and moved into software support for Medical Manager. From there she moved to Georgia in 1998 and was involved in the Y2K upgrades for the network division of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia. For those efforts, she was one of the recipients of the President’s Award at BCBS of GA. In 2000 Sheryl travelled the country installing digital cardiac cath lab systems, at places like DePaul in St. Louis, Baylor University in Texas, as well as hospitals in Chicago, Nebraska, New York, Texas, California and Georgia. This groundbreaking technology allowed patients to take their cardiac catheterization diagnostic test on a CD to bring to specialists to help reduce heart attacks, unblock arteries, and perform coronary artery bypass surgery with more knowledge than just the diagnostic reporting.
In 2001 she became the IT Director for the Atlanta Cardiology Group, one of the largest cardiology groups in the Southeast. In 2005, Sheryl and Steve Platnick decided to form their own IT company, and began with Atlanta Cardiology as their cornerstone client.
