Accolade - Chief Medical Officer, Seattle, WA
We are pleased to announce the placement of Dr. Shantanu Nundy, M.D., MBA as Chief Medical Officer at Accolade, a personalized health and benefits solution for employers, health plans and their members. Dr. Nundy will eventually relocate from Washington DC to Seattle, WA. Dr. Nundy is a practicing physician and technologist with expertise blending medicine and innovation, along with deep knowledge of the healthcare industry, and global health policy and care that complement Accolade’s people-centered mission. Dr. Nundy will oversee the company’s clinical strategy and solutions that further support health outcomes for individuals and their families, and the experience and relationships they have with their providers.
Dr. Nundy joins Accolade from the World Bank Group’s $15 billion Health, Nutrition and Population Global Practice, where he accelerated the adoption of digital health and innovative care models globally. Previously, he was Director of the Human Diagnosis Project, a healthcare Artificial Intelligence (AI) startup that engaged physicians in more than 80 countries. Prior to that, Dr. Nundy was Managing Director for Clinical Innovation at Evolent Health (NYSE: EVH), a population health and predictive analytics company, where he improved hospital and chronic disease outcomes for more than one million Americans. He also co-invented CareSmarts, an automated text messaging software for individuals with chronic illness and one of the first mobile health interventions to demonstrate improved health and lower costs. Dr. Nundy has advised the American Medical Association, Food and Drug Administration, and federal and state medical boards on payment and regulatory issues in digital health and AI.
“It’s not every day you find a doctor who is also a technologist, a researcher who is also an inventor, or an idealist who is also a pragmatist, but that is what we found in Shantanu, and we’re thrilled to bring him in,” said Rajeev Singh, CEO of Accolade. “We have an exciting clinical innovation roadmap that will expand our solutions to help people find exactly the right doctors at the right time, and significantly impact the patient-provider relationship. Shantanu has an impressive global view and knows how to think big. He will be a terrific partner as we expand our clinical innovations that change the healthcare supply chain for the benefit of every person and every family in the U.S.”
Dr. Nundy practices primary care in a clinic for uninsured and low-income patients and plans to continue to see patients while leading Accolade’s clinical innovation. He holds a bachelor’s degree from MIT, an MBA from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and an M.D. from Johns Hopkins.
