Medallion hires former Oscar Health exec to lead strategy

Mitta is a proven leader in the digital health space and previously served as a public health advocate, consulting for the U.S. Department of State and The Global Fund.

We’re excited to announce today that Vinod Mitta, M.D., will be joining Medallion as Vice President of Strategy. In this new role, Dr. Mitta will serve on Medallion’s leadership team and report to Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Derek Lo

“Vinod brings a unique combination of assets to Medallion: an intimate understanding of the complexity of the healthcare market, experience innovating business solutions from the ground up, and an innate appreciation of the power of data in storytelling. He’s exactly the kind of thinker, driver and leader we need at this juncture in our growth,” says Lo.

Dr. Mitta is a proven leader in the digital health space.  In his most recent position, Dr. Mitta played a pivotal role in optimizing the provider network at Oscar Health by digging deep into claims data and analytics to re-imagine the design of payer provider networks. Dr. Mitta was also the strategic innovator behind Oscar’s $3 Drug List, rethinking how payers use formularies and medication pricing to drive better prescribing and adherence.

Prior to Oscar Health , Dr. Mitta served as a public health advocate, consulting for the U.S. Department of State and The Global Fund. Mitta was formerly an operating partner and portfolio manager at Tenex LLC, an investment fund, overseeing diligence and operations for technology and healthcare investment. Dr. Mitta received an M.D. from the University of Southern California, M.P.H. from the Harvard School of Public Health.  He completed his clinical residency training in Preventive Medicine & Public Health at Mount Sinai Hospital and is an actively practicing physician.

“I’m thrilled to join the Medallion team. Medallion is tackling a quiet, seemingly boring, behind-the-scenes administrative process that desperately needs to be improved. Clinicians such as myself spend countless hours each year completing duplicative and unnecessary administrative paperwork just so we can see patients. I’m excited to help address this problem on behalf of clinicians everywhere. The progress Derek and the team have already made is remarkable. He’s a force of nature, moving with urgency, and I’d like to be part of that journey," says Dr. Mitta.

Since announcing our Series A fundraise of $20MM last month, that journey includes focusing on scaling our team, effectively doubling in size in 2021. Want to be a part of our growth, too? Learn more here.
