Applied Health Analytics names Coalesce VP of business development

Former GE director tapped for consulting division

Nashville-based Applied Health Analytics announced today it has hired David Carney as vice president of business development for Coalesce, the company's consulting division.

Formerly the regional director of performance solutions for General Electric, Carney has also held business development, marketing and health care roles.

"Health systems recognize that a well-developed and executed employer strategy is critical as the transition from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement continues," Carney said in a release. "Hospitals engage Coalesce to assess its current business-to-business initiatives before investments are made in personnel, technology and new program development."
