Dear Glassdoor Community, 

My name is Bharti Shah, the Deputy CEO and Chief Empowerment Officer at CTIS, Inc. I am writing this note as Raj Shah’s wife, as a long-term employee and as a majority shareholder of the company.

Raj Shah is the founder and CEO of CTIS. For thirty (30) years, he has led CTIS in support of his desire to help clinical providers in the direct treatment of their patients by using informatics and technology. Raj is a creative, strategic, focused, goal-oriented and performance driven leader. Because of these leadership qualities, he has sometimes been perceived as autocratic, and occasionally passionately argumentative.

This long-term devotion to a specific cause drives his dedication. Raj has been a chronic disease patient for the last ten (10) years relating to heart, lung, kidney, diabetes, and tinnitus. In addition, Raj endured a heart transplant in 2012 and many describe his recovery as being miraculous. Raj believes living through his chronic illness experience is another way for him to help the larger patient population by sharing with the clinical providers the tools and information needed to provide overall benefit. As a result, Raj has personally learned what is necessary in developing the products and services needed to improve the direct care and treatment of the patient population.

Raj and I understand that both his clinical state may make him reactive and occasionally mercurial in his tone and demeanor. If any of his written or verbal communication(s) have been considered as being negative by a former or present employee, please be assured that was not his intention and he is working very hard to change.

Our leadership has been restructured to allow Raj to direct his attention to community, business development, client and patient care leveraging his vision and creativity. During this time, we will watch for your feedback and will continue to use this information to foster a transparent workplace and community.

Thanks and stay tuned……. Bharti Shah.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CTIS, Inc. (Rockville, MD) in April 2017.


    The ladies I met with were professional and polite, and were engaging. They asked several leading questions and were also extremely candid about the role, the company, and the environment.
