Google to appoint Geisinger CEO as healthcare services head

Geisinger Media

But the job could be complicated by the number of powerful executives at the company who have a strong interest in health care, including Alphabet President and Google co-founder Sergey Brin, former CEO Eric Schmidt, and Verily boss Andy Conrad.

There will soon be a change in leadership at Geisinger.

Feinberg will take up the role at Alphabet (Google's parent company) in early 2019 and will have oversight over diverse business units in health, including its investments in AI and disease management.

According to CNBC, Feinberg would report to Google's artificial intelligence head, Jeff Dean, while working closely with CEO Sundar Pichai to develop a cohesive strategy for Google's various health and health-adjacent enterprises, including through home automation and wearables.

Google hired Geisinger Health CEO David Feinberg to lead its healthcare efforts.

Geisinger is well-known as an industry leader in the use of electronic health records to manage patients through advanced big data analytics and predictive modeling. "Together, we have improved patient and member experience, along with our quality of care, employee engagement and physician and nurse recruitment, and our legacy of innovation has blossomed".

According to Don Stanziano, Geisinger's chief marketing officer, the system's board of directors is still deciding on its next steps for hiring a permanent CEO.

Ryu, an emergency physician, previously held an executive position at Humana and has also worked in leadership roles at CMS and the Department of Veterans Affairs. "I look forward to following Geisinger's achievements in the years to come and will remain forever grateful to have had this tremendous opportunity". Here's your money quote: "If data is the oil of modern day, Geisinger-which serves 3 million patients in rural Pennsylvania-may just be health care's Saudi Arabia".

Google's forays into healthcare have included products such as Google Fit and Google Nest. He joined Geisinger in 2016.
