Former U.S. Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra has taken on new responsibilities at Outcome Health. The company provides a health information platform for nearly 20 percent of doctors’ offices in the United States.
“Vivek is an exceptional growth leader with a unique skill set to drive large-scale technology transformation and revenue growth for the business,” said CEO Rishi Shah. “As we scale to 70 percent of all physician practices with our platform, Vivek’s leadership will deepen our commitment to customers at the core of our strategy and align operational investments during this period of rapid growth.”
Kundra was hired at Outcome Health in January as executive vice president for provider solutions. In that capacity, he played a leading role in delivering growth and innovation to the company’s 41,000 member practices, hospitals and health systems. His new role as chief operating officer means he will also provide leadership over revenue, product and operations.
“I joined Outcome Health for the mission to improve health outcomes for people in critical moments of care,” Kundra said. “This new role allows our organization to listen more deeply to our customers, innovate more rapidly, and transform the healthcare industry in partnership with all stakeholders.”
Before coming to Outcome Health, Kundra was executive vice president at Salesforce and previously served under President Barack Obama as the first federal CIO.
