BOSTON – March 7, 2022 – Lumeon, a leader in care journey orchestration, today announced the appointment of John Glaser to the Lumeon Board of Directors. Glaser will serve as an independent non-executive director and support Lumeon’s continued growth in helping healthcare systems develop and scale new delivery models.
“We are delighted to welcome John to our board,” said Lumeon Founder and CEO Robbie Hughes. “From his vantage point as a former CIO, vendor, a thought leader, and visionary, John brings a unique perspective on the potential to transform care delivery with scalable, automated care solutions that build on existing EHR and analytics investments. There has never been a greater need to focus on productivity and process improvement to relieve the burden on today’s overwhelmed care teams.”
“COVID has hit providers hard with disruptions to their business model, but a lack of key clinical staffing has comprised recovery,” Hughes continued. “While many vendors are helping with revenue cycle or other administrative tasks, only Lumeon effectively augments the front-line clinical teams to make a real impact on care delivery. With John’s support, Lumeon is uniquely positioned to transform how providers think about the tools at their disposal to respond to the challenges they face today and tomorrow.”
Glaser served as Senior Vice President of Population Health at Cerner; Chief Executive Officer of Siemens Heath Services; and Chief Information Officer at Partners HealthCare. He is an Executive-in-Residence at the Harvard Medical School, a Lecturer at the Wharton School, and a Board Member for several digital health companies.
“The relentless move to value-based care places significant pressure on healthcare providers and payers to streamline their clinical, administrative, and financial processes. Processes such as case management, perioperative scheduling, and population health management form the backbone of care delivery and management in the post-pandemic era,” said Glaser. “Lumeon’s sophisticated process automation technology and services enable customers to deliver exceptional standardized and personalized care. I am delighted to join the Lumeon team.”
“I’ve known John for most of our careers, both as a customer, a leader, and a competitor, and am delighted to welcome him to the Lumeon Board,” said Tom Zajac, Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board. “John has been at the forefront of health transformation. As the industry model continues to evolve outside the four walls of the hospital – to community and consumer-focused value-based care – he will bring deep experience, insight, and commitment to help Lumeon deliver solutions that drive better care for all stakeholders.”
