In keeping with our mission to disrupt healthcare and change it for the better, we are are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Clay Ackerly as our Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Ackerly has extensive experience working across the care continuum, and joins Privia to advance innovation within Privia’s value-based platform.
Dr. Ackerly brings over 20 years of healthcare experience in building successful population health programs, developing Medicare Advantage plans, and performing in risk-based arrangements. In his previous role, Dr. Ackerly served as Chief Clinical Officer for Tennessee-based healthcare company naviHealth, Inc. to improve the quality of care and experience for over 2 million post-acute patients. Considering his wealth of experience serving in various positions in academic and private institutions including Harvard College, London School of Economics, CMS & the White House, we are both delighted and fortunate to add his wealth of experience to our team.
“Privia has the right mission and vision, as well as proven track record of enabling physicians to successfully care for and deliver personalized care to their patients. In an era marked by uncertainty, change and administrative burden, the arrival of such a simple, patient-centered and physician-driven platform couldn’t be more timely,” said Dr. Ackerly. “I’ve worked in the population health space for more than 15 years, and I’m thrilled to help Privia build upon its current population health platform. Privia exists to help physicians provide high quality, affordable care to their patients, and to help physicians thrive in, not just survive through, a value-driven healthcare world, a mission I look forward to building upon.”
As CMO, Dr. Ackerly will collaborate closely with the physicians of Privia Medical Group, one of the fastest growing multispecialty medical groups in the country. Privia Medical Group doctors have a shared vision of improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of care delivered to their patients. This vision is made possible by using sophisticated technology, a team-based approach, and unique population health management programs.
