Chief Executive Officer at CareCentrix, John Driscoll said, “COVID-19 exposed the fragility and fragmentation of our health care system and demonstrated once again the value of providing more care to the home. As the pandemic unfolded, we showed in hot-spots ranging from New York and Connecticut to Florida and Louisiana that the home can be a superior destination for care and healing.”
“Dr. Popiel’s experience delivering innovation and change at scale within large health plans and provider organizations will help us accelerate opportunities to bring care home,” added Driscoll.
Sharing his thoughts over the New appointment, Dr. Richard Popiel said, “The expansion of person-centered home care is one of the most effective ways to improve outcomes and reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions.”
“CareCentrix has demonstrated leadership in leading care homes, long before COVID-19 struck – the pandemic exacerbated already well-established challenges of a fragmented continuum of care once patients leave the hospital. I look forward to collaborating with the experts on the Strategic Advisory Board and exploring ways to continue to innovate and bring healthcare into people’s homes,” Dr. Richard Popiel further added.
