Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB)June 26, 2015
MedLion Management, Inc., a Direct Primary Care benefits company with physicians contracted in 26 states, today announced that Praveen Mooganur has joined the company’s leadership as its President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Mooganur will work directly with Dr. Samir Qamar, the company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, and will lead MedLion’s overall business including national distribution, product, finance, provider network development, and consumer experience. Mr. Mooganur will also join MedLion’s Board of Directors.
Mr. Mooganur joins MedLion following a successful career in business spanning 18 years. Prior to joining MedLion, Mr. Mooganur was chief operating officer and co-founder of Wiser Together, a healthcare IT company that provides personalized treatment comparison software to employers, health plans, and consumers. In addition, Mr. Mooganur held various roles at the Corporate Executive Board and Tata Motors across his career. Mr. Mooganur holds an MBA from The George Washington University, and an M.Sc. in Nuclear Physics from The Bangalore University.
“I have found an exceptional entrepreneurial partner in Praveen. I believe Praveen’s addition to our team will allow MedLion’s growth to flourish faster, more effectively, and more efficiently,” stated Dr. Qamar, MedLion’s CEO. “He is a master business strategist on both the macro and micro levels. Under his commercial leadership, Wiser Together grew to millions of members in a few years. Praveen is a well-respected heavyweight in the healthcare benefits industry, and we expect his addition, along with MedLion’s proven growth strategies, to result in even stronger long-term growth for our company.”
“Samir’s vision for changing healthcare in America is compelling and refreshing. By removing insurance out of the primary care delivery process, MedLion’s model is able to deliver up to 50% overall cost reduction for employers, and up to 30% reduction in premiums and expenses to employees and consumers while delivering higher quality of care. This is unprecedented in an environment where healthcare costs have only been going up. I am very excited to join MedLion, and believe significant opportunities exist to build upon the groundbreaking work MedLion has already pioneered in Direct Primary Care. I look forward to partnering with Samir and the rest of the team to rapidly expand MedLion access to employers and consumers in thousands of cities and towns around the country,” stated Praveen Mooganur, MedLion’s President and COO.
