CHICAGO, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime workers’ compensation executive Ryan Kelly has joined managed care firm Rising Medical Solutions (Rising) as Vice President of Business Development. In this role, Ryan will direct client acquisition efforts with a focus on expanding Rising’s clinical services footprint, in addition to its flagship medical bill review product.

Kelly brings more than 20 years of industry leadership experience to his new position, most recently serving as York Risk Services’ Vice President of Managed Care Operations. Other prior employers include Healthcare Solutions, CareWorks, Stratacare, and Coventry.

“With so much industry consolidation of managed care firms, as well as venture capital infusion, it does not always bode well for payers in terms of service quality and flexibility,” says Kelly. “I joined Rising because it is one of the few substantial private players remaining, and their ability to be completely customer-focused versus investment return-focused really appealed to me.”

Responsible for both regional and national market growth, Kelly will work closely with Rising’s customer experience, program implementation, and service delivery teams.

“Ryan’s strong operations background gives him firsthand insight into the interventions needed across an injured employee’s health care lifecycle,” says Michael Wright, Rising’s National Vice President of Business Development. “With such industry knowledge, Ryan will provide a very consultative experience for new clients and I look forward to the ways he will help drive customer value and success.”
