Thomas J. Cooney


Tom Cooney joined MedPoint Digital in 1993 and started the company’s digital communications business. During his tenure as CIO of MedPoint, Tom has helped establish the company as a true innovator of digital media for medical communications.

These include eMedia applications such as computer-based training, branded websites, healthcare outcome analyzers, eClinical and eMarketing portals, interactive on-line media and webconferencing. Tom has an M.B.A. from Miami University and a B.A. from Northwestern University. He is married and lives in Chicago.
