Hank Head

Optum

Hank Head has held top strategic product leadership and strategic planning positions at numerous clinical decision support / medical informatics companies. He has designed and delivered clinical decision support (CDS) and advanced electronic health records (EMR/EHR) systems for governments, NGO’s, diagnostic, insurance and other private sector companies such as Optum, McKesson, Medscape, LabTracker, Virco Diagnostics, and TherapyEdge.

His most recent projects involved creating highly structured guideline content for the national comprehensive cancer network (NCCN) which helps physicians and payers more effectively use guideline evidence at the point of care. He has also created systems that use genetic data to optimize treatment options and has authored four unique graph based decision authoring systems for the creation of high-quality portable clinical content.

Prior to joining Optum, Hank spent over 5 years as an IT Executive leading clinical reasoning, value based care solutions and team based care products at McKesson. The value based care treatment recommendation options moved clinicians from below 50% compliance with evidence to over 87% compliant saving 100’s of millions in the cost of chemotherapy across 400K decisions.

Hank graduated from the University of Southern California Veterbi School of Engineering and resides in Eflan, NC with his three children.
