And his out-of-the-box thinking will accelerate Innovaccer’s vision of helping healthcare work as one using a connected cloud-based Data Activation Platform to streamline care delivery with unified patient records across the care continuum. 

“Our vision is to help healthcare work as one and ensure a more seamless experience for everyone in the continuum of care.
