Medicom Health CEO
Will is a man who exemplifies the Midwestern work ethic. Earning his degree in Iowa, he returned to the Midwest after 17 years in the Pacific Northwest. Once back, he leapt into healthcare sales. He made his way to Medtronic, eventually answering the call to be his own boss. Most recently, Will took over the helm of at Medicom Health, finding the best of both worlds: a start-up vibe with the hum and history of a well-established firm.
Throughout his career, he’s cultivated opportunities for learning. “One thing I Iearned from corporate America was the importance of positive company culture. I am adamant that everyone must contribute in meaningful ways to our mission and goals. Life is too short to spend in a toxic environment.”
Will is our strongest cheerleader. “When I first started working here, I was shocked at the depth of knowledge and 20 years of expertise the Medicom Health team has in our space.”
He is also very proud of how our HRA tools save lives, improve health and create tremendous investment returns. “There is so much noise in the hospital marketing and patient engagement space today, that it can be very hard for a healthcare system to know what really works and can return value.” Will makes sure Medicom Health is dedicated to helping solve that problem.
“What really excites me about where we are as a company, is the emergence of some really interesting new use cases for our tools. CMS’s Chronic Care Management program is paving the way toward quality-oriented, outcome based reimbursement for providers.
Medicom tools can provide data-driven insights to health professionals, while educating patients and consumers about health improvement. The added benefit of billable CPT codes for the use of our tools is also very good for health providers!”
