My vision is to continue FH’s incredible phase of growth by shaping, expanding, and amplifying the company’s data, analytics, and technology offerings. In today’s healthcare ecosystem, data and technology play such a profound role in our clients’ success. Therefore, we will be relentlessly focusing to deliver technology solutions that enable our clients to ultimately improve health outcomes.”
