Today, Lumeris, a pioneer in population health management solutions headquartered in St. Louis, announced that Art Glasgow joined the company as president and chief operating officer (COO). In this position, Glasgow will play a key role in setting Lumeris’ strategy for continued growth as the company accelerates innovation and blazes a trail for the healthcare industry’s transition from volume to value-based care.
“Art joins us at a pivotal time for our organization,” said Mike Long, chairman and CEO of Lumeris. “Using high-touch, data-driven population health methods, Lumeris has pioneered a new model for healthcare that yields higher quality, lower costs, happier consumers and more satisfied physicians. Lumeris is experiencing explosive growth as leading healthcare providers and payers from around the country are partnering with Lumeris to implement the model in their communities.” Long continued. “Art’s expansive knowledge and proven operating skills will provide the discipline and leadership to ensure Lumeris exceeds our partners’ expectations.”
Glasgow has more than 20 years of healthcare leadership experience in organizations ranging from start-up ventures to Fortune 15 companies; spanning the provider, payer and vendor areas. He has held senior executive roles at healthcare leaders such as Optum/UnitedHealth Group, Allscripts and the Duke University Health System.
“Lumeris is at the forefront of much needed change within our healthcare system and offers a proven track record of success in driving the transition to value-based care with quality,” said Glasgow. “I’ve been impressed by Lumeris’ versatility and growth within a complex, ever-changing industry and I look forward to being a part of its impressive team.”
