Ellie Stang, MD, ProgenyHealth’s Founder and CEO, states that, “The demand for our services is growing because ProgenyHealth is providing real solutions that work for managing a complex, costly population. Whether it’s our deep expertise in managed Medicaid that is improving health outcomes and reducing dollars spent, or the impact we are having with our commercial health plan partners in providing strong value for them and their employer groups, ProgenyHealth remains front and center as the national leader in care management for premature and medically complex newborns. This is a challenging mission that requires highly specialized teams working closely at a local level with their hospital-based peers and a data-driven approach to measuring financial and clinical outcomes. Brian is an accomplished executive with deep expertise working collaboratively with internal teams to streamline business operations that drive growth and increase efficiency and profitability.
