As an effort to grow its commercial health care business, management consulting provider Guidehouse has named Dr. Harry Greenspun its first chief medical officer.
A former practicing cardiac anesthesiologist, Greenspun brings both clinical and executive leadership experience to his new role working with government and industry clients to focus on health care transformation, the company said.
Prior to Guidehouse, Greenspun was the chief medical officer and managing director of Korn Ferry Health, and before that, he served as the managing director of the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions.
Greenspun also served as chief medical officer for Dell Inc., and Northrop Grumman Corp, respectively.
Greenspun is an author, speaker and a thought leader in the health care industry, Guidehouse said. He’s made recommendations to the executive branch and U.S. Congress on the pathway to transform health care through IT.
“We are honored and thrilled to welcome Dr. Greenspun to the Guidehouse team as we continue to expand our commercial health care offerings,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse. “His exceptional insight, innovative leadership coupled with technical and clinical expertise will help our clients address key industry challenges and drive growth.”
Greenspun has been named among the “50 Most Influential Physician Executives in Healthcare” by Modern Healthcare, and has served on the advisory boards for the World Economic Forum, Anthem, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, The Wireless-Life Sciences Alliances, and Georgetown, Tufts and George Mason universities.
Greenspun received his medical degree from the University of Maryland, and completed his residency and fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital, where he served as chief resident.
“I am delighted to join Guidehouse and work alongside such an exceptional team,” Greenspun said. “This is an exciting time in health care, and Guidehouse has the resources, knowledge and innovative expertise that will help our clients navigate complexities while improving quality of care.”
