NASHVILLE, Tennesse—Medalogix, a machine learning company specializing in the advancement of patient care in home health, palliative, hospice and strategic payer initiatives in the home, announced the appointment of Scott Hampel as chief operating officer (COO). Hampel succeeds Andrew Bates, who will continue to lead the company's financial strategy, legal and corporate development functions as executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO).

Hampel brings along more than 25 years of health care and software-as-a-service (SaaS) experience to his role as COO at Medalogix. The company said his understanding of how to maximize client experiences along with his extensive health care domain knowledge, will help ensure Medalogix continues to delight customers in the widening health at home industry. Medalogix said his appointment reflects its commitment to solving these challenges through both focused execution and customer partnership.

Bates brings a history of financial management and strategic planning to the CFO role. Prior to joining Medalogix nearly three years ago, Bates worked extensively with boards and management teams across post-acute health care to drive growth and optimize financial outcomes, including a four-year tenure on the Medalogix board. 

Both appointments come at a crucial time, as Medalogix launched Pulse for home health agencies in 2022 to help providers manage home health more effectively, including optimizing utilization, preventing avoidable Low Utilization Payment Adjustments (LUPAs), identifying recertification appropriateness and preventing unnecessary hospitalizations.

"We are thrilled to welcome Scott as our new COO and Andrew as our CFO," said Elliott Wood, CEO at Medalogix. "Scott's experience working with both providers and payers, while growing and scaling SaaS health care companies paired with Andrew's deep industry and financial background will position Medalogix for continued success and enable us to rapidly deliver new capabilities for our customers. This is critical as Medalogix has seen increased demand to support our customers with today's industry challenges, especially related to staffing, regulatory compliance and reimbursement, all while ensuring optimal care to their patients."
