Darin LeGrange

Darin LeGrange

Darin’s 29-year career has been spent entirely in the U.S. healthcare industry, with depth and breadth across multiple segments within the market. He has successfully led national and global technology and business process organizations, spanning Fortune 500 healthcare divisions to second-stage growth organizations and start- up software companies. He has also worked closely with various private equity firms on healthcare technology investing as an operating partner and advisor.

Capitalizing on the ever-changing healthcare market over the last 20 years, Darin has passionately driven growth in each phase of his career by addressing the clinical and financial needs of hospitals and other provider organizations, national and regional health plans, and pharmaceutical/life science organizations. This has been done through services, products, and consulting capabilities that help clients reduce cost, increase access, improve outcomes, and engage consumers.

Darin’s most recent leadership role took him back to the global, Fortune 500 world, as the North America leader for healthcare at Atos. During his short tenure there, Darin successfully organized the unit around payer, provider and pharma/life sciences sub-markets, re-built the senior leadership team, revamped the client delivery model, established a true go-to-market sales and marketing function, and established strong client relationships helping drive growth. In the first year, the division exceeded growth targets and established a go-forward revenue projection with greater than 20% growth for 2018. During this time, Darin and Atos also completed three acquisitions simultaneously, adding significant capability in the consulting areas of EHR implementation, optimization and adoption, as well as population health and financial services.

Darin launched his career at Electronic Data Systems (EDS) in the late 1980s, focusing on the largest Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) plans across the country; this included managing large, multi-functional, complex projects, as well as full IT outsourcing contracts. The pinnacle of this period was the successful implementation of the largest IT outsourcing contract in the industry at that time, including a complete implementation of claims, membership and all ancillary applications in a nine-month period for BCBS Massachusetts.

Subsequent to EDS, Darin formed, built and managed the healthcare division at Affiliated Computer Systems (ACS). Taking over as the President of ACS Healthcare Solutions, and with a handful of clients, he successfully established a divisional infrastructure poised for growth in the payer, provider and pharma/life sciences industries. This included a new client services model, full sales and marketing capability, partnerships with multiple high-value companies to accelerate penetration in each sub-market, and the acquisition of multiple strategic assets, increasing market footprint and operational capability for the division.

Leaving the corporate world, Darin spent the next 14 years as the President and CEO of two private equity backed organizations, and one founder-owned entity, successfully growing each of these organizations exponentially. Each of these companies were ultimately sold to strategic buyers in their respective markets. The companies spanned most aspects of the healthcare ecosystem, including Xactimed, a commercial software solution focused on the revenue cycle needs of hospitals and other provider groups, Phoenix Health Systems, a full-scale IT outsourcing, consulting and EHR implementation company focused on hospitals and payers, and Aldera, a claims processing software solution focused on all lines of business for health plans and other risk-bearing entities.
