Digitize.AI Announces New VP of Business Development
Healthcare industry veteran, John Leary, joins the revenue cycle–focused A.I. and automation firm

CHARLOTTE, NC: Digitize.AI, a leading A.I. and automation firm focused on solving complex challenges in the healthcare revenue cycle, announced today that John Leary has joined the company’s leadership team as Vice President of Business Development.

Touting a career that spans more than three decades working with health systems, health plans, preventive health, corporate health, and health-related technology, Leary brings a rich healthcare expertise and proven track record as he assumes oversight of Digitize.AI’s strategic partnerships and new client acquisition efforts.

Digitize.AI CEO, Justin Adams, on Leary’s appointment:

“John is joining our team at a pivotal moment in our growth, and we’re thrilled to have him on board. His passion for improving the health of others through innovative products, services, partnerships, and technology aligns perfectly with our mission and values, and his past startup and enterprise experience makes him uniquely qualified to steer our growth and help us prioritize opportunities as we pick up steam with healthcare providers.”

Leary on joining Digitize.AI:

"As a long-term student of the health industry, I have seen far too many administrative barriers in place for both patients and clinicians that prevented the right care being delivered by the right clinician at the right time. Digitize.AI offers unique intelligent automation technology to remove inefficiencies in the system that create these barriers to care, and I couldn't be more excited about being part of the team that is bringing this technology to the market."

Prior to joining Digitize.AI, Leary held leadership positions in business development, operations, and marketing with both innovative new companies and more established organizations. He has been a key contributor in growing organizations such as Virgin Pulse, McKesson Health Solutions, Harvard Community Health Plan (now Harvard Pilgrim HealthCare), Middlesex Memorial Hospital (CT), and CIGNA.
