LENEXA, Kan., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Captify Health announced that effective as of today, Dr. Andrew W. Litt, former Dell Chief Medical Officer, and co-founder of CareCore National, will join the company's Board of Directors. Dr. Litt is an expert in the changing landscape of healthcare, especially the importance of the physician relationship as the foundation of delivering cost-effective and quality care. He brings to Captify tremendous experience and established relationships that will support an expanding business model that enables physicians to deliver better outcomes within evolving payment models.
Captify was originally founded in 2010 as a patient engagement and colon prep fulfillment company. With a focus on driving practice efficiency, reduction of no-shows and patient education, the company has seen impressive growth and now serves nearly one million patients annually through a customer base of over 500 gastroenterology physicians. As healthcare models continue to change from Fee-For-Service to Value-Based, Captify recently announced expansion plans to ensure that their physician customers have access to the specific services and solutions that enable a seamless shift in the delivery of quality and cost-effective care. As a leader in healthcare IT, a previous executive leader of a major academic medical center, a healthcare investor, entrepreneur and consultant, and a neuroradiologist, Dr. Litt contributes a wealth of knowledge to the future visions of this rapidly growing company.
"Andy brings a broad base of business, medical and healthcare entrepreneurism to the Captify Board of Directors as we move into a phase of expansion and new realms of business," said Nicole Bradberry, CEO of Captify Health. "His previous experience building a billion dollar company in the utilization and quality management areas is extremely relevant to Captify's plans to grow and transform into the leader of managed care and bundled payment management within the digestive health space."
Dr. Litt founded Cornice Health Ventures, a firm created to invest in, help others acquire, and collaborate with companies seeking to create meaningful healthcare change. He most recently served as Chief Medical Officer of Dell Inc. where he provided strategic insight allowing healthcare organizations, medical professionals, and patients realize the benefits of information-driven healthcare. Dr. Litt was also a founding member of CareCore National – which recently purchased MedSolutions and rebranded as EviCore – a company providing utilization and quality management programs for health plans.
Dr. Litt commented on his appointment by saying, "I am honored to be a part of the Captify Health board, where innovative ideas are shaping the programs and services that will emphasize high-quality digestive care in the setting of new payments models. I believe in their patient-focused model and am committed to preserving the valuable perspective of the physician."
