Raised in Story City in Iowa, Drew Madden is a leading healthcare IT professional. With a professional career spanning over a decade, Madden has worked at the top level in some of the best Healthcare IT enterprises in the US. He attended Roland-Story High School in Iowa County. Upon completion, he joined the prestigious University of Iowa, where he acquired a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE), in Industrial Engineering. While at the University, Madden also acted in the capacity of Student Advisor for four years, until his graduation in 2002. Shortly after his graduation, Madden received a job opportunity from Cerner Corporation. During his four-year stay at the company, he worked as an Integration Consultant, charged with implementing Inpatient Clinical applications in several major Chicago hospital systems.

In January 2006, Madden was hired by Ingenix Consulting where he worked as a Senior Epic consultant. He was responsible for implementing Epic Inpatient applications in multiple hospital systems in the Midwestern region.

Under his stewardship as President, Nordic Consulting was able to grow from 10 to 725 employees, 3 to over 150 client partners and increase from annual revenues of $1 million to $ 130 million in six years.
