Aneesh Chopra and Glen Tullman Join Box as Healthcare Advisors

Box today announced it has brought on Aneesh Chopra, the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States, and Glen Tullman, former CEO of Allscripts, to serve as special advisors for the company’s healthcare and life sciences practice. As advisors, Chopra and Tullman will help Box deepen its expertise in the healthcare industry and support the growing number of hospitals, health insurance firms, and medical and pharmaceutical companies on its platform. In the past year, sales in healthcare and life sciences has grown six-fold, with new customers like MD Anderson Cancer Center, St. Joseph Health, UnityPoint Health, Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) and Mount Sinai Health System.

"Healthcare is Box's fastest growing vertical, and it’s clear that there’s a remarkable opportunity to improve the way information is captured, managed and shared between doctors, researchers, patients, and institutions,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “We're excited to work with Aneesh and Glen, whose years of experience working at the intersection of technology, healthcare, and regulatory reform will be instrumental to our success in this space."

"We have made great progress digitizing healthcare, opening up new data sources and shifting the payment incentives in healthcare to reward value over volume," said Aneesh Chopra, co-founder, Hunch Analytics and former U.S. CTO under President Obama. "I see great possibilities for services like Box, which already have mass consumer and enterprise adoption, to usher in much-needed innovative and cost-effective approaches for data sharing between providers, payers and patients."

"I am excited to be working with Box as they continue to build out their healthcare and life sciences practice," said Glen Tullman, managing partner, 7Wire Ventures and former CEO of Allscripts. "Box is a great example of a highly successful cloud-based service that is used by large and small businesses alike for next generation collaboration. It's not enough to put existing healthcare IT solutions into the cloud, we need solutions that will help providers re-engineer their workflow processes and make data sharing in healthcare easier and more user intuitive."

New Healthcare Advisors

Chopra is a long-time healthcare industry veteran spending many years at The Advisory Board Company, a global and research consulting firm for hospitals, before moving into politics. He served as the first CTO of the United States, appointed by President Barack Obama, and brings policy knowledge on health IT and government sponsored interoperability initiatives. Chopra is currently the co-founder of Hunch Analytics, a data analytics startup.

Tullman is one of the early pioneers of the healthcare IT industry, building Allscripts, a leading global provider of electronic health records (EHRs). He took the company public in 1999 and grew the company from $30M in 1997 to $1.4B in 2012. Tullman is now managing partner of 7wire ventures and is focused on companies that promote his firm’s vision of the Intelligent Connected Health Consumer, providing consumers with information and tools to allow for more engagement and better health and healthcare decisions.

Healthcare Momentum

Since announcing its move into healthcare with initial platform partners and HIPAA compliance in April 2013, Box has experienced tremendous growth in the healthcare vertical. New healthcare customers include MD Anderson Cancer Center, St. Joseph Health, Mount Sinai Health System, BRI, Palomar Health, University of Mississippi Medical Center, UnityPoint Health, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, AMN Healthcare Service, Inc and ZirMed. These new customers join hundreds of other innovative organizations -- such as Johns Hopkins HealthCare Solutions and GlaxoSmithKline -- in using Box to manage and secure critical information, coordinate care, and streamline research and hospital protocols in the cloud.

Box also announced today that its integration with CareCloud, a cloud-based EHR with a companion personal health record (PHR), practice management and medical billing platform will be available on March 21, 2014 to CareCloud’s nearly seven million patients who are live in their system. With this new integration, physicians using the CareCloud PHR can easily transfer patient records to Box, where patients can securely download them or transfer them to other doctors. This gives patients with multiple providers the ability to download and aggregate all their records in one place rather than accessing their records on multiple portals attached to EHRs in different practices and hospitals.
