NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Enterprise Partners ("HEP"), a healthcare private equity fund, is pleased to announce the addition of Mike Taylor as Venture Partner. "As a proven entrepreneur and physician, Mike brings a unique set of attributes to HEP that will benefit our investors and portfolio companies," said Dave Tamburri, Managing Partner of HEP. "After more than 10 years of friendship, we are fortunate to welcome him to the team."
Prior to joining HEP in January, Mike served as President of MultiPlan's Payment Integrity division, a position he held since MultiPlan's acquisition of Medical Audit & Review Solutions ("MARS") in 2014. Mike founded MARS as a technology-enabled provider of healthcare payment integrity services for payers and third-party administrators. He served as President and CEO since the company's inception in 2011.
He was previously Vice President of Operations at Executive Health Resources, a company that provided physician advisory and consulting services to over 2500 hospitals across the nation and was acquired by Optum in 2010. Prior to that, Mike held positions in medical administration and direct patient care, as medical director for Aetna / Schaller Anderson, as well as Co-Founder and President of a rural family medicine practice.
Commenting on Mike's tenure with MultiPlan, Mark Tabak, Chairman and CEO of MultiPlan, stated, "It takes a certain type of person to create a company and make it a success. It's even more special when that entrepreneur can drive assimilation of his venture into a more established organization like MultiPlan. Mike has been instrumental to that process."
Mike holds an MD from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and an AB from Harvard College.
