HHS Chief Technology Officer Bruce Greenstein will leave his post in June and join LHC Group as chief innovation and technology officer.
Over the last year, Greenstein has encouraged the agency to open data for public use including through the Data Insights Initiative and HealthData.gov. He also promoted the Kidney Innovation Accelerator, a partnership with the American Society of Nephrology to speed up drugs, devices and digital health tools for preventing, diagnosing and treating renal failure.
Before becoming CTO at HHS, Greenstein led the western regional office of digital behavioral health company Quartet Health and was CEO of Blend Health Insights.
He also previously served as secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, a post he resigned from during investigations into a state Medicaid claims-processing contract with a company where Greenstein once worked.
At LHC Group, a provider of in-home healthcare, Greenstein will work to make the company's services more efficient and effective, according to a news release. This work will include a push into remote monitoring and telehealth.
Greenstein will also help develop value-based models and arrangements with managed-care partners.
In April, LHC Group and Almost Family merged, becoming the second-largest home health provider in the U.S., with revenue of $1.8 billion.
HHS representatives were not immediately available for comment.
