RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orb Health, the leader in Chronic Care Management (CCM) through its revolutionary Collaborative Virtual Care solution, announced today that it has added Michael Reilly to its Board of Directors. Mr. Reilly is a proven operations leader and innovator with a 25-year career in health care including health plans, health systems, physician practice management, and population health. His deep and diverse operational experience coupled with extensive pharmacological knowledge brings a unique viewpoint to Chronic Care Management.
Most recently he served as the Chief Operating Officer of an innovative kidney care company, Somatus. Prior to joining Somatus, he served as a Regional President at Landmark Health. Landmark is the nation’s leading medical provider group specialized in caring for complex, chronic patients. Their doctors and providers drive to patients where they live, bringing care through house calls. This home-based medical care is designed to help patients stay well and stay home.
Mr. Reilly earned a joint pharmacy (BS) and Master’s in Business administration (MBA) from The State University of New York at Buffalo. Over his 25-year career he still makes time to practice pharmacy at least once a month in a small community drug store in the community that he grew up in caring for his parents, aunts/uncles and neighbors.
“The number of chronically ill people in the United States is exploding and the cost associated with managing this population is increasing along with it,” said Michael Reilly. “I’m excited to join the Board at Orb to bring my operational experience and knowledge to help innovate the provision and delivery of Chronic Care Management. I believe strongly in Orb’s mission of empowering patients, enabling healthcare efficiency, and demonstrating healthcare outcomes including higher quality, patient satisfaction and lower costs through virtual care.”
Orb Health’s Collaborative Virtual Care™ enables the high-performance delivery of reimbursed Medicare services such as Chronic Care Management and more as a virtual extension of the practice, using integrated best practices, without requiring additional staff, applications, or office space. Its 2019 Orb Health Patient Outcomes study on the CCM program at Community Health Centers of Pinellas (CHCP) showed a 54% decrease in Emergency Department (ED) visits for Chronic Care patients with 6 or more chronic conditions within 9 months of implementation, resulting in $6.22 million of projected annual Medicare savings per 1,000 patients.
“Orb Health’s unique Virtual Care solution is continuously evolving to meet the ever-increasing needs of chronically ill patient populations,” said Bryan Krastins, CEO, Orb Health, “Mr. Reilly has been a key operator in several companies and has seen great success at driving meaningful scale that makes a difference in successfully serving patients. We’re incredibly excited to have his vision and experience to help guide us as we scale operations.”
Orb Health is pleased to also announce that several positions for nurses (LPNs, LVNs, CNAs, RNs, more) and other medical professions are available.
