Allscripts’ Payer and Life Sciences Division (Veradigm) Vice President John Pigott has joined leading healthcare technology company Innovaccer Inc. Pigott, popularly known in the industry as JP, joins the company as the Managing Director of payer and life sciences sales team. During his stint at Allscripts, JP was instrumental in strategizing the company’s expansion to broaden its scope and scale. Innovaccer offers solutions for payers across Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial lines.
- JP played a key role in taking Payer and Life Sciences Division’s growth from $20 million in 2013 to $180 million in 2018. Under him, the company forged new relationships with leading health plans and pharmaceutical companies.
- In his new role at Innovaccer, he is expected to address the data challenges faced by payer organizations. His profile will include identifying and engaging payer prospects and handling their needs for the provider and member engagement, cost and utilization management, and compliance.
- According to JP, “value-based” care is the “future” of US healthcare. “Payers must seize the opportunity to play a critical role in enabling high-quality, affordable healthcare by fostering collaboration among stakeholders across the care continuum. By going beyond traditional payer-centered levers with an integrated approach that empowers both providers and members and addresses data challenges, payers can meet critical needs across the healthcare value chain,” he says.
- Innovaccer CEO Abhinav Shashank said, “Payers had to navigate through some significant changes in the past year. With the ongoing pandemic and the upcoming deadline for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ rule on Interoperability and Patient Access, health plans need to modify their strategies. At Innovaccer, we offer payer organizations a suite of solutions that meet their most important needs. JP’s experience and extensive knowledge of the healthcare payer market will enable us to help our payer customers achieve improved financial performance and, most importantly, drive better health outcomes for their members.”
