Health and care experience company Transcarent has appointed Dr Randy Hawkins as Chief Medical Officer (CMO).
Dr Hawkins will oversee the organisation’s clinical quality initiatives and support its health analytics strategy.
Dr Hawkins has more than 30 years of experience in the healthcare industry including patient care delivery and military medicine in addition to healthcare consulting and management.
Dr Hawkins joins Transcarent from Carrum where he was the CMO.
Previously, Dr Hawkins served as Chief Medical Officer and EVP, Health Analytics at ConsumerMedical.
He has also served in other senior clinical roles throughout his career at Connance, Glytec, and PatientKeeper, where he focused on patient safety and interoperability as their Chief Medical Information Officer.
Transcarent CEO, Glen Tullman, said:
“Dr Hawkins understands that in order to deliver high-quality, affordable care at scale, we need to use a blend of technology and analytics to create a new kind of health and care experience for our Members and the physicians who serve them.
“His expertise is a perfect fit to serve as Transcarent’s most senior clinical leader.”
Dr Hawkins served as a Medical Officer in the US Navy and is a decorated combat veteran of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
He was also an anaesthesiologist in private practice for more than 12 years.
“We have made remarkable progress in enhancing care at the bedside by giving clinicians cutting-edge technologies and integrating innovation into the provision of care, but the industry has yet to empower patients in a meaningful way so they can make their own healthcare decisions with confidence.
“All health consumers deserve access to the information and support they need, access to providers, and an unwavering commitment to quality throughout their health and care journey.
“Transcarent is bringing a solution to health consumers and clinicians that is different from anything I’ve seen in unique and important ways.”
