PHOENIX, Ariz. (January 8, 2020) — In keeping with an ongoing commitment to expand its services and client base, leaders at Vālenz™ are pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Shelley as Senior Client Services Executive. Shelley joined the team at Vālenz – a leading innovator for solutions that connect cost and quality data on a single, end-to-end analytics platform to reduce medical claim costs and promote quality healthcare – in late December.
“Greg brings a unique mix of strengths to this role, including his skills in relationship-building, client service, strategic execution and data analysis,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Revenue Officer. “Those attributes, combined with his consultative spirit and passion for helping clients solve challenges, have positioned him well to bring new solutions to Valenz clients. We are proud to have him on board.”
“It’s an honor to join the Valenz team because the promise of ‘smarter, better, faster healthcare’ is so compelling and, more important, so in demand,” said Shelley. “More than most, the people of Valenz understand how to reduce the total cost of care and have been making the smart, strategic moves necessary to bring results-driven solutions to our clients.”
As a candidate, Shelley was drawn to the firm’s innovative approach to data science. Now, as a member of the team, he says he’s wholly inspired by it and looks forward to finding new ways to foster ongoing growth. With a degree in Business Administration from West Texas A&M University, Shelley has held a variety of management and leadership roles, most recently at One Call, a provider of healthcare solutions for the workers’ compensation industry, where he served as vice president of business development.
Through a complete health administrative ecosystem, Valenz connects cost and quality data on a single-source, end-to-end analytics platform for smarter, better, faster healthcare. Serving self-insured employers, third-party claim administrators, brokers and benefit consultants, trust and labor organizations, stop-loss carriers, integrated healthcare delivery networks, and health/dental plan payers, Valenz solutions integrate data from comprehensive care management services (Valenz Care), high-value provider networks (Valenz Access), claim flow management (Valenz Claim) and solutions for payment integrity, revenue cycle management and eligibility compliance (Valenz Assurance) into the ecosystem. Valenz is backed by Great Point Partners.
