NEW YORK and CHICAGO – April 5, 2017 – Outcome Health (formerly ContextMedia), the leading health decision support platform, announces that Blake Chandlee has joined as EVP of Industry Solutions and Emerging Businesses. In his role, Chandlee will lead Outcome Health’s industry expansion by collaborating with its partners in the life sciences, payer and healthcare services industries to bring actionable information and intelligence into critical moments of healthcare decision making. He will also lead the company’s growth efforts across emerging commercial opportunities in areas such as clinical trials, payers, pharmacies and international expansion.
Following the acquisition of AccentHealth and the expansion of Outcome Health’s platform to more than 55,000 outpatient facilities in the country, the addition of Chandlee to Outcome Health’s executive team will accelerate the company’s growth toward its goal of establishing a presence in 70% of all outpatient facilities in the U.S. by 2020 and global ubiquity. Ashik Desai, who previously served as Outcome Health’s EVP of Business Growth and Analytics, will now support efforts across the company’s industry and provider organizations as EVP of Business Operations, leading business systems, sales strategy & operations, business intelligence and product marketing.
“Blake is an extraordinary leader who will help us scale our partnerships with industry and contribute to building a global network that serves people across the world with actionable information and intelligence anytime they’re making a critical healthcare decision.” said Rishi Shah, CEO of Outcome Health. “He shares our conviction that Outcome Health is uniquely positioned at the nexus of a five-sided network across all stakeholders in the ecosystem – from patients and physicians to payers, products and services companies – and that we have the opportunity to transform care and drive better health outcomes together in a way that no stakeholder can alone.”
Previously, Chandlee served as Global Vice President of Facebook’s Global Partnerships and Solutions Engineering Team. In this role, he led strategy, partnerships and commercial relationships across all of Facebook’s strategic technology partners as well as its solutions engineering team. He started at Facebook in 2007 and spent four years building its International business out of London. Chandlee was responsible for launching offices across EMEA, APAC and LATAM before returning to the U.S. where he launched teams responsible for all of the Global Agency businesses and Global Accounts teams. Prior to Facebook, Chandlee spent 4 years at Yahoo! in a variety of domestic and international roles.
“Some of the most important decisions of a person’s life are made during a consultation with their physician, yet for many, this experience is full of uncertainty. Outcome Health has created an extraordinary platform that brings intelligence into healthcare decision making,” said Chandlee. “This platform has the potential to deliver better health outcomes to every person in the world, and I am eager to help realize this mission. After working with a mission-focused founder over the last 10 years, I have found a similar culture and opportunity for impact here at Outcome Health.”
