"Corporate responsibility and citizenship is a key priority within Inovalon," said Dr. Dunleavy. "We take our obligations to strong corporate citizenship seriously, and are grateful for the opportunity to support a number of organizations that provide for our communities and enrich the lives of their members."
"Inovalon believes that it has a responsibility to a number of constituencies including not only our customers, employees, and the greater healthcare community, but also our local communities," said Kyle Bray, Vice President and a foundational member of the Inovalon Charitable Committee.
