Flanagan joins the two-hospital Coordinated Health from Advancing Practitioners, a Tennessee-based health services company where he held the post of chief operating officer. A 20-year veteran of the healthcare industry, he was responsible for all executive management of AP's non-clinical functions. Flanagan received his bachelor's degree in economics from Duke University in 1986 and his master's degree in hospital administration from the university two years later. Since earning his master's, Flanagan has served in several healthcare provider organizations including a stint as CIO of APS Healthcare in New York and RegionalCare Hospital Partners in Tennessee.
"I'm passionate about Coordinated Health in large part because its employees understand that more streamlined healthcare is needed to best serve patients and employers," said Flanagan in a statement. "I look forward to furthering our healthcare delivery model via innovative IT solutions."
