SALT LAKE CITY – May 31, 2017 – Central Logic, a leading provider of transfer center and on-call scheduling solutions, today, announced that board of directors’ member Angie Franks is elevated to Board Chair.

Central Logic’s Board of Directors, for the first time in the company’s history, elects an independent Director to Chair the Board. Central Logic continues to expand their innovative healthcare software solutions to provide real-time visibility throughout a patient’s care continuum journey.
The company recently released a suite of enterprise solutions that connects, captures, and reports on critical patient care issues.
