Keith Dunleavy, MD, president, CEO, and chairman of the board for Inovalon, Inc, says that healthcare is enormously complex, and that it’s being driven across a broad range of audiences.  Because of this, data is particularly important for patient populations insured under Medicare or Medicaid managed care, Medicare Advantage, the health insurance exchange, and the accountable care organization marketplace.
