Caravan Health adds 25+ years of HCIT sales and marketing expertise as they rapidly expand their value-based payment-empowerment solutions. 

Austin, Texas – December 7, 2016 – Caravan Health, a pioneer of delivering turn-key solutions to empower both providers and patients to achieve better lives, has added Mr. Michael L. Sanderson, co-Founder of RemitDATA, Inc., to their executive team effective immediately.

“Michael brings a deep passion and expertise for driving growth in innovative solutions to the chaotic landscape of healthcare,” said Lynn Barr, CEO of Caravan Health.  “We are excited to add Michael to our incredible team of executives as we travel together with provider communities towards better care.”

Sanderson joins the team with over 25 years of experience in creating new solutions, expanding into new markets, and rapidly accelerating top-line growth.  Prior to joining Caravan Health, Sanderson served as Co-Founder, President of RemitDATA, a pioneer of comparative analytics technology focused on 360-degree data transparency, which exploded from a handful of passionate clients to a solution now supporting hundreds of thousands of providers across the U.S.

“After my amazing adventure at RemitDATA, I’m blessed to find another disruptive solution of which very people in the HCIT community are aware.  You may not have heard of Caravan Health, and the transformative way in which we are changing the lives of providers and patients across hundreds of communities, but you will soon!  I’m so excited that Lynn invited me to join her incredible team on what I feel will be one of the next big success stories in our industry.  Lynn is a visionary who can translate the massively complex regulatory ‘intent’ of CMS into real-world solutions that work.”

Prior to RemitDATA, Sanderson served as an executive of publicly-traded QuadraMed, a leading health-information management company.  At QuadraMed, Sanderson participated in numerous acquisitions and eventually a spin-out (private LBO by Warburg Pincus) of ChartONE, a web-based medical management firm which he joined as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.  Under Sanderson’s leadership, ChartONE doubled from $40M to $80M in revenue and then later sold to HealthPort, a top 25 Health IT company.  Sanderson also served on the board of MediConnect, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, which was later sold to Verisk Health.

Sanderson graduated with honors from Abilene Christian University and serves as an Elder at Preston Road Church and on the board of trustees for ChristianWorks for Children.  Michael resides in Dallas with his wife and 3 children.
