Dr. Preet Goraya Joins Orb Health as Chief Operating Officer to Expand Rapidly Growing Virtual Chronic Care Management Services

December 3, 2019

RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--

Orb Health announced today that it has hired Preet Goraya, MD, MBA, to oversee Medical Operations that service the exploding demand for its virtual Chronic Care Management service. As COO, he leads the implementation and management of care delivery through Orb’s innovative services that expands the care capacity of FQHCs/CHCs, Health Systems, and ACOs through scalable virtual services for reimbursed Medicare codes such as Chronic Care Management and more resulting in significant improvements in chronically ill patient outcomes while increasing value-based care profitability.

Orb Health’s Collaborative Virtual Care™ enables the high-performance delivery of reimbursed Medicare services such as Chronic Care Management and more as a virtual extension of the practice, using integrated best practices, without requiring additional staff, applications, or office space. Its 2019 Orb Health Patient Outcomes study on the CCM program at Community Health Centers of Pinellas (CHCP) showed a 54% decrease in Emergency Department (ED) visits for Chronic Care patients with 6 or more chronic conditions within 9 months of implementation resulting in $6.22 million of projected annual Medicare savings per 1,000 patients.

“The demand for Orb Health’s unique and proven approach to virtual healthcare for chronically ill patients is skyrocketing and we are aggressively hiring highly respected talent to quickly scale and execute our services to meet this demand,” said Bryan Krastins CEO, Orb Health. “Dr. Preet Goraya is not only highly regarded and accomplished in building scalable care organizations, he’s also been a long time believer in Orb Health after successfully implementing our services as an Orb Health customer in his previous role at Southcoast Health. We’re incredibly fortunate to have Dr. Goraya as part of our growing team.”

Dr. Goraya’s 15+ years’ experience as a highly effective executive in healthcare and insurance operations and his background and education in medicine combine to drive unprecedented results in primary care, telehealth, and remote clinical care execution. His previous work at RSA Medical saw him build a remote care delivery center with over 500 providers (acquired by Xerox). At Southcoast Health, he oversaw $1.2 billion in charges as part of annual revenue cycle management. He holds a MD from Medical University of America, and an MBA from the Mendoza Business School at University of Notre Dame. Dr. Goraya currently resides outside of Dallas, TX.

“At Southcoast Health I saw first-hand the care capacity empowerment that Orb Health brought to the table for health systems that were struggling to take better care of the exploding chronically ill population and do so profitably, ” said Dr. Preet Goraya, COO, Orb Health. “I couldn’t be more excited to join the company at a time where the significant results I’ve experienced are being realized by many more of Orb’s customers and it’s driving unparalleled growth in our approach to 21 st century healthcare.”
