For Michigan Payer’s New President, Technology Is a ‘Priority’
Health insurers face dozens of technological challenges in coming years, as federal regulations mandating electronic health record interoperability and price transparency mean that every health insurer has had to start developing new information technology and data capabilities.
Praveen Thadani, the new president of Priority Health, has the background to do just that. Priority is a nonprofit payer with nearly 900,000 members, according to AIS Health’s Directory of Health Plans, making it the carrier with the second-highest membership in the state of Michigan. Thadani says he was drawn to Priority’s “amazing heritage of innovation” in accepting the role.
