Experienced Healthcare Leaders Join the Aver Executive Team

     Columbus, OH February 9, 2021 – Aver      Inc,      the industry’s leading provider of comprehensive analytics, network services, and administrative capabilities, has added three new executives to its leadership team to support its      growth and industryleading solutions.  D. Scott Foster, Michael Johnson, and Dessa Williams join Aver, continuing the addition of extensive healthcare experience to the organization.

 

As Chief Financial Officer, Scott will drive financial oversight and provide critical insights into payer and provider networks and contracts. Scott brings over thirty years of healthcare experience working with leading insurance and healthcare organizations. Foster began his career at Ernst & Young and has served on the executive teams of Anthem, Centene, Piedmont-Wellstar, and WellCare. His extensive background in healthcare, from both payer and provider views, provides a true understanding of and clear perspective on solutions needed to make value-based healthcare a powerful and successful initiative in healthcare. Bill Nordmark, CEO of Aver, said, “Working with Scott in the past, I knew the enormous level of knowledge and passion he has for making healthcare more efficient and effective. When the opportunity arose, I knew I wanted Scott on our executive team.” Foster added, “I’ve seen first-hand      the need for a strong value-based solutions provider. I am excited about the opportunity to work with an organization like Aver that’s bringing new, groundbreaking solutions to healthcare.”

 

Michael Johnson, Chief Revenue Officer,      brings over twenty years of healthcare leadership experience and will lead expansion and revenue growth for Aver. Michael has a history of delivering double and triple-digit growth throughout his career. Having served as the development engine at Cerner, TriZetto, Casenet, and Rx30, Michael has the deep understanding needed to successfully bring new healthcare products and services to market and to seize the exponential growth opportunities in value-based healthcare. Nordmark emphasized Johnson’s capacity to build company revenue: “Michael is the epitome of corporate revenue leadership. When you combine Michael’s talent to guide company growth with his deep knowledge of healthcare and technology, you know he’s an enormous force.” Michael emphasized his vision for Aver growth in value-based healthcare services: “Working within different segments of healthcare, from EMR to claims processing, I have seen the enormous gaps that still exist in the delivery of healthcare. Aver’s solutions are truly industry-changing, and I knew I wanted to be part of the company that is evolving so many aspects of healthcare.”

As the
Senior Vice President of Operations, Dessa Williams brings over 28 years of
expansive IT
and payer operations experience. With a focus on
the continuous improvement and optimization of healthcare business processes,
Dessa spent over 20 years working for Centene Corporation,
     leading the way on client implementation, operations, and innovation. Whether Medicare, Medicaid, or
ACA insurance programs, Dessa was the driving force of process, integration,
and transformation.
Her
leadership was instrumental in the successful entry into and ongoing
operations of ACA programs for Centene.
Williams combines her operations and technology
expertise with a passion for making technology much more than a tool, saying:
“I view IT as an asset that should always bring added value to a business, and
in healthcare that value and efficiency are needed every day.” Dessa took a
sabbatical from her long career in
healthcare, only to be pulled back by Aver’s vision and
products. Bill Nordmark said, “As a technology partner of Centene, I worked
with Dessa and saw her deep expertise and strategy for healthcare IT. When we
searched for our operations leader, we knew we wanted Dessa to lead our team.”
Together with her staff of healthcare professionals, Dessa will drive all
operations efforts
from client implementation to the creation of
repeatable processes
, and    
 ensure a true win for payers,
providers, and members.

 

“Our
mission at Aver is to revolutionize healthcare and improve patient outcomes
through platform technologies used by payers and providers to empower
value-based care.
     The
addition of these healthcare industry experts allows us to continue the journey
to provide the industry’s best solutions for our customers
,    
 said Nordmark.
