HealthCore Evolution Drives Better Data Alignment for Customers
WILMINGTON, Del. — Feb. 2, 2021 — Mark Cziraky, former vice president of scientific affairs, chief growth officer, and co-founder of HealthCore, Inc. has become president of HealthCore while Marcus Wilson, former president and co-founder, now leads the Enterprise Analytics Hub, a new division of Anthem, Inc. that includes HealthCore.
HealthCore continues to use its clinical and research expertise, industry relationships, and real-world data to generate the evidence needed to improve decision making in healthcare. Anthem has long utilized insights that HealthCore, its independently operated research subsidiary, has generated through its research for health plans, as well as for life sciences companies, government, and academic collaborators.
Now, the Enterprise Analytics Hub, led by Wilson as chief analytics officer, with a refreshed, informed research and analytic strategy, can provide more useful data to HealthCore to generate evidence that is more actionable for its external partnerships and customers.
Wilson brings 25 years of experience leading a research and evidence generation organization into his new role of chief analytics officer at Anthem. In addition, he has been extensively involved in a broad array of industry-wide efforts to accelerate healthcare evidence development and facilitate clinical decision support.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to work with HealthCore to advance the analytic agenda we are setting forth in the Enterprise Analytics Hub,” said Wilson. “I have full confidence in Mark’s ability to lead the HealthCore organization and continue to form strategic partnerships across our industry.”
Cziraky and Wilson met as clinical pharmacists in the early 90s and later co-founded HealthCore together in 1996 after realizing a need for more relevant and actionable evidence in clinical decision making in healthcare.
Cziraky has extensive experience running all lines of business for HealthCore. He most recently led the Growth and Scientific Affairs team and global scientific and business development for HealthCore. He has also led the Health Economics and Outcomes Research teams, Safety and Epidemiology teams, and the site-based Clinical Research unit. Additionally, Cziraky has served as a key architect in creating open-source research collaborations within the healthcare industry that have allowed health plans to be involved in research design and execution with various collaborating organizations.
“By joining the Anthem Enterprise Analytics Hub, we can help drive strategy and utilize our industry partnerships and collaborations and collective expertise to enable our partners and Anthem to become greater insights-driven organizations and have an even greater impact on healthcare,” Cziraky said. “We’re not changing the way we work – we’re amplifying the effect of the evidence we generate.”
HealthCore is finding evidence and truth at the core of healthcare. We work with life sciences companies, government agencies, payors, and collaborators on a broad range of research services focused on informing key decision makers. As the wholly owned, independently operating subsidiary of Anthem, Inc., we utilize a powerful research ecosystem of expertise, relationships, and data to generate the evidence needed to improve healthcare.
