Innovative healthcare engagement company, PreparedHealth, announced today that Alan Weinstein, Founder of Premier, Inc, has been appointed as a Strategic Advisor to the Board. Weinstein brings with him a wealth of experience in building large healthcare networks to solve massive industry problems.

Alan’s experience building win-win business models will help us accelerate the growth of PreparedHealth.” said Ashish V. Shah, CEO of PreparedHealth.
PreparedHealth takes a data-driven approach to connecting patients, their families, healthcare providers and insurers inside the network. Weinstein will be a key advisor as the company continues to expand across the growing number of Hospital-led ACOs and post-acute provider markets, organizing at-home service providers like home health, personal care, home-based pharmacy, hospice, durable medical equipment, and other newly emerging home-based healthcare services.
“I’m honored to be working with PreparedHealth. They have a respectful and very entrepreneurial culture, are motivated to making a meaningful difference for patients and their families and have a significant amount of industry experience building innovative companies. All of these traits coupled with a hard work ethic is an excellent predictor of success when you are looking at a new company,” said Weinstein. “I believe they are on the leading edge of healthcare. Post-acute care is where a significant amount of healthcare industry innovation is going to take place, and their technology is paving new ground for payers, providers, patients, and families.”
During his 35-year career in healthcare, Weinstein focused on developing startup businesses providing services to hospitals through shared programs intended to achieve greater economies of scale. Premier, Inc, where Weinstein was Founder and President, is a much respected provider of clinical outcomes and resource consumption information for U.S. hospitals along with a very prominent Group Purchasing Organization (GPO). Premier’s patient safety website and supporting program is the definitive resource for the hospital industry. Weinstein has remained in the healthcare space over the last fifteen years in advisor and board member roles.
“Having Alan join us is a testament to the future of the company. Many have entrusted Alan throughout his career to solve some of the largest problems in the healthcare industry. We are excited to partner with him on shifting the market to better collaborate with home-based providers of healthcare services” said David Coyle, Co-Founder of PreparedHealth.
