“Nancy’s extensive health care leadership experience, and in particular her experience working with providers on solutions for practices and health systems, will greatly benefit Medicity,” said Charles E. Saunders, MD, chief executive officer of Emerging Businesses for Aetna. “Our goal is to create a fully connected health care marketplace to enable better exchange and action on health care information. Nancy will help us leverage Medicity’s leadership position to drive better connections and integration in the provider marketplace.”

She has more than 20 years of experience in health care, including health care finance, population health management solutions, enterprise software and transaction processing.

We wish him the best in his new endeavors,” said Dr. Saunders.
