LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kai Tsai, a nationally renowned healthcare executive in former leadership roles at Valence Health, OptumInsight, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers has joined RowdMap, Inc. and will take on a key market and business development role to drive RowdMap, Inc.'s continued growth transforming relationships between provider organizations and payers.

An Ernst and Young EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® winner, RowdMap's Risk-Readiness® benchmarks help health plans, physician groups, and hospital systems identify, quantify, and reduce no-value care that physicians deliver- a central tenet of successful pay-for-value programs.
Through practice patterns and referral analysis, RowdMap's benchmarks identify the health care entities that manage unwarranted and unexpected variation in care. This variation leads to more than $850 Billion in no-value care annually. Payers and physicians use RowdMap's physician and population health benchmarks to create strategies that put these highest performing physicians at the center of networks and then design products, organize clinical programs, and coordinate sales and marketing around them.
RowdMap's platform comes preloaded with benchmarks for every physician, hospital, and zip code in the United States- no IT integration required. RowdMap's Risk-Readiness® Platform works across all market segments and has significantly larger returns than traditional medical economics approaches.
