PHOENIX, Ariz. (February 17, 2020) — The Board of Directors at Vālenz™ has appointed Amy Gasbarro as Chief Operating Officer. Since 2018, Gasbarro has served as President of Vālenz Care, the firm’s care management solution.
“I commend the Board for their decision to appoint Amy to this role,” said Rob Gelb, the firm’s new Chief Executive Officer, adding that Gasbarro’s leadership background spans two decades at companies focused on population health and cost management solutions for self-funded employers. “Her expertise, combined with her shared vision for the future of Valenz, make her an excellent choice to oversee operations for the next high-growth phase of our company.”
In addition to her leadership role at Valenz, Gasbarro is actively involved in committees that advocate for self-insured employers, including the Government Relations Committee for the Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) and the SIIA Political Action Committee. Such involvement ensures she has a seat at the table as a voice for self-funded groups, helping to steer public policy in support of favorable outcomes – namely, lower-cost, higher-quality healthcare.
Those outcomes are at the heart of everything they do at Valenz, says Gasbarro, where delivering on the company’s promise involves taking every opportunity to engage early and often for smarter, better, faster healthcare. As COO, Gasbarro is committed to supporting the Valenz team as the enterprise grows, and as its flagship platform – the industry’s first complete, end-to-end health administrative ecosystem – expands.
“Through the analytic and predictive power of the Valenz ecosystem, we are continuously broadening our ability to influence better health outcomes and reduce total cost of care,” said Gasbarro. “This is a very exciting time for Valenz, and I look forward to my new role in shaping a more prosperous future for our company, and more importantly, for our clients.”
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. 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.
