Ben H. Park, MD
Physician, Computer Scientist, and Entrepreneur
Dr. Ben Park is a serial entrepreneur who founded three software companies and a medical group. He sold one of the software companies to Anthem. Dr. Park then went to work for Anthem as part of the 12 person senior management team.
Dr. Park’s primary responsibility at Anthem was to build American Health Network; an Indiana based company with over 80 medical practices throughout Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Dr. Park then led a group of physicians who purchased American Health and set it up as an independent physician organization. Under his leadership, American Health has pioneered the use of Information Technology to drive effective and efficient management of chronic diseases.
According to the Quality and Resource use reports released by CMS, patients cared for by American Health physicians experience better quality care and lower cost care. Dr. Park believes that the movement away from the current pay for activity system to the population based pay for results system will be good for patients, US global competitiveness, wage growth and physicians. Optum recognized the value of American Health Network and in 2017 purchased the practice. Dr. Park worked for Optum for the next four years before leaving and joining the Vocare team.
