SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apixio Inc., a pioneer in applying Big Data analytics to healthcare, announced the recent appointment of Maya Capur as its Vice President of Customer Operations. Capur will join the company’s executive team and lead the development and expansion of Apixio’s customer success and operations activities.
“Our customer base has grown this year by almost four times last year’s total. Maya will be critical to our ability to meet the tremendous demand from large health plans and physician organizations for our patented risk adjustment solution,” said Darren Schulte, MD, chief executive of Apixio. “With her depth of experience and proven leadership, Maya will help ensure that we flawlessly execute and exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Capur brings twenty years of health information technology and analytics expertise to her role leading customer operations at Apixio. She has held senior-level positions in customer success and business development at Lattice Engines, Healthline and Google. During her Google tenure, she built and managed customer operations teams for multiple products, including Product Search and Google News; led content partnerships for Google Health and Google’s mobile products; and was a member of the Android launch team. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Mount Holyoke College and her MBA from Harvard University.
"I am incredibly excited to join such a talented team,” said Capur. “I share Apixio’s mission to analyze clinical data to uncover key insights that improve healthcare delivery and outcomes. Apixio’s technology now provides unprecedented accuracy and transparency for risk adjustment analytics applicable to millions of people across the U.S. As value-based payment models gain broader adoption, risk adjustment solutions are becoming the foundation for both how payment is determined and how patient outcomes are tracked – and Apixio is on the forefront of this shift. ”
Apixio’s flagship product uses data science and machine learning computer algorithms to sift through medical charts to accurately identify the documented chronic conditions for each patient. This information is then verified by outside expert chart auditors. Medicare ultimately uses these reported data to compute monthly payments to insurers for their covered Medicare Advantage plan members, a process known as risk adjustment.
In general, health care insurers are starting to shift payment contracts from paying for each service rendered to paying one fixed amount to cover all healthcare services predicted for a patient during a given time period. Accurate risk adjustment is critical to properly set these payments. Studies show that, with proper quality oversights, health care providers are more likely to offer optimal care when operating under a fixed annual individual fee. Apixio’s technology provides healthcare organizations with the accurate clinical data and analytics to make this possible.
