“Outcomes Health has always been known for their ability to aggregate and
analyze large amounts of data for payers, and provide them with the
information necessary to support payment integrity and quality outcomes
initiatives,” said Keim. “Now that the industry is openly embracing shared
accountability to achieve financial and health outcomes goals, it is
imperative that providers, Accountable Care Organizations, Health Information
Organizations, and Health Insurance Exchanges have access to meaningful data
with powerful analytics to inform population and cohort segmentation, program
pricing, financial projections, and overall strategy. I am looking forward to
being back with the Outcomes Health family and driving the growth and
innovation agenda at both Outcomes Health and Senior Care, our sister company
for prospective and care management services.”

“Joell and I have a longstanding history working together and I have immense
respect for her abilities,” said Wanda Kochhar, founder and CEO. “The strategy
chief is the one person at the table who is in the best position to deal with
the elephant in the room. The CSO must also ensure that the top ranks maintain
the right focus so that strategic initiatives don't stall and business
opportunities get lost. Joell’s unique perspective will be invaluable as we
leverage the Outcomes Health and Senior Care platforms to provide new
solutions to stakeholders in the world of shared accountability.”
