The company works with both health plans and health systems to support value-based payment in care plans. It does so by leveraging data and using its network of 9,000 provider partners in the U.S.
“We are delighted to welcome Tracey and Lisa to Signify Health,” Signify Health CEO Kyle Armbrester said in a press release. “Their expertise and leadership will help us continue to build our value-based care platform that is transforming how care is delivered and paid for so that people can have more healthy, happy days at home.”
Scraba will oversee legal support for Signify’s home and community services segment. She previously served as the chief privacy officer for CVS Health (NYSE: CVS). In her new role, she will also have oversight of privacy function for Signify.
On Wagamon’s end, she is responsible for overall strategy for Signify Health’s network of more than 9,000 mobile doctors and nurses, 3,000 healthcare providers and facilities in value-based arrangements and hundreds of community-based organizations in the U.S.
“Central to our work is expanding and evolving our clinical and social care provider networks while upholding our commitment to maintaining data integrity and privacy within an ever-changing, rapidly evolving environment, and Tracey and Lisa will play key roles in advancing these efforts,” Armbrester said.
Complia Health adds to its leadership team
Complia Health, a home health and hospice technology solutions provider, has announced that Paul Minton will take over as senior VP of product management, while also naming Bryan Koehler CFO and COO.
Additionally, the Illinois-based company announced that Casey Schirk will take over as chief client officer.
The three additions “underscore the company’s commitment to delivering higher caregiver and consumer satisfaction to their clients,” according to a press release.

Complia Health aims to provide solutions for agencies that simplify clinical, financial and back-end operations.
