SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH —September 26, 2018—Collective Medical, delivering the nation’s largest and most effective network for care collaboration, today announced the appointment of Mandira Singh as head of product. Singh will lead Collective’s product creation group, enriching the value delivered to patients through Collective’s nationwide network and its real-time, risk-adjusted event notification and care collaboration platform which spans all points of care.
Singh joins Collective from athenahealth, where she most recently served as executive director of product management. Prior, Singh’s leadership was instrumental in the development, execution, and widely recognized success of athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program.
During her tenure as the director of the athenahealth Marketplace and MDP program, Singh grew the MDP program from MVP to a fully operational business unit serving more than 250 companies and the 100,000 healthcare providers that leverage athenahealth. Labeled athenahealth’s “disrupter-in-chief” by HIMSS Media and named on the LinkedIn Next Wave list of top healthcare professionals 35 and under, Singh was responsible for one of the first and most successful partner platforms in the health tech industry. She also developed and launched the company’s start-up accelerator, serving as board observer for multiple investments and driving M&A for those that were acquired by athenahealth.
“Mandira is a force of nature. She demonstrates a highly-effective approach to product development that is equal parts creative and disciplined—informed by her deep domain expertise and familiarity with some of the most innovative companies in digital health,” says Chris Klomp, CEO of Collective Medical. “Collective is succeeding toward a vision that has eluded the healthcare industry for so long—to connect providers and plans across the continuum, in real time, so they can collaborate at scale for the benefit of the patient. Achieving this vision requires a disruptive mindset, and we’re so pleased and grateful to have Mandira and her experience, keen intellect, and sheer horsepower driving toward this goal.
The Collective network is currently engaged with every national health plan in the country, hundreds of hospitals and health systems and tens of thousands of providers across emergent, inpatient, post-acute, mental and behavioral, and ambulatory settings.
“The MDP team saw well over 1,000 product demos a year, and what we noticed is that behavior change in healthcare is especially difficult,” says Singh. “But Collective has demonstrated an incredible ability to change provider behavior and consequently positively impact outcomes – we have a nationwide network of diverse care teams relying on us to coordinate patient care. I’m excited about this opportunity to work with the team at Collective to make healthcare work for everyone.”
Prior to her work with Collective and athenahealth, Singh worked in investing, focusing on the health technology space as an analyst with Essex Woodlands Health Ventures. She holds an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Collective Medical is endorsed as a best practice for emergency medicine by the American College of Emergency Physicians. The company has been recognized by Inc. Magazine and by the MountainWest Capital Network as one of Utah’s fastest growing companies.
