ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Outcomes Health Information Solutions, LLC (Outcomes Health), a leading healthcare analytics and services provider, today announced that Joell Keim, RN, BA, CPC returns to the company as chief strategy officer (CSO). As CSO, Keim will be working with, and across, all business units to establish strategies that drive the growth and innovation agenda of Outcomes Health and Silent Seniors Community Care, LLC (Senior Care) where Keim serves as a member of the board of directors. Outcomes Health delivers its in-office/in-home prospective and care management solutions through its sister company, Senior Care.
Keim was a member of the Outcomes Health leadership team from 2002-2010, serving in numerous rolls including chief operating officer, chief marketing officer and division manager. She most recently served as vice president, client services and clinical affairs at NaviHealth, Inc. where she was responsible for collaborating with Medicare Advantage plans and integrated delivery systems with developing post-acute solutions. She also worked as a consultant and chief clinical advisor at Welsh, Carson, Anderson and Stowe, a private equity investment firm, advising the firm on vendor portfolios. Keim held leadership positions at WellCare Health Plans, Johnson & Johnson’s Jassen Pharmaceutica, and Home Health Corporation of America. Keim earned her RN from the University of the State of New York, and holds a CPC certification from AAPC.
“Outcomes Health has always been known for their ability to aggregate and analyze large amounts of data for payers, and provide them with the information necessary to support payment integrity and quality outcomes initiatives,” said Keim. “Now that the industry is openly embracing shared accountability to achieve financial and health outcomes goals, it is imperative that providers, Accountable Care Organizations, Health Information Organizations, and Health Insurance Exchanges have access to meaningful data with powerful analytics to inform population and cohort segmentation, program pricing, financial projections, and overall strategy. I am looking forward to being back with the Outcomes Health family and driving the growth and innovation agenda at both Outcomes Health and Senior Care, our sister company for prospective and care management services.”
“Joell and I have a longstanding history working together and I have immense respect for her abilities,” said Wanda Kochhar, founder and CEO. “The strategy chief is the one person at the table who is in the best position to deal with the elephant in the room. The CSO must also ensure that the top ranks maintain the right focus so that strategic initiatives don't stall and business opportunities get lost. Joell’s unique perspective will be invaluable as we leverage the Outcomes Health and Senior Care platforms to provide new solutions to stakeholders in the world of shared accountability.”
