Carrum Health announced it has hired Brook West as chief commercial officer (CCO). West joins Carrum Health’s powerhouse executive team, bringing more than 20 years of experience and success in leading sales teams across a variety of industries.
Previously, West served as vice president of sales at 98point6, where she led the team and drove the digital healthcare company’s growth. At Carrum Health, she will help employers around the country adopt a COE program to provide employees access to the country’s best surgeons while significantly lowering costs.
“The healthcare industry is in the midst of a dramatic shift away from inefficient, outdated reimbursement models that pay providers for the number of patients they see rather than the quality of care they deliver,” said Sach Jain, CEO and founder. “Carrum Health is at an inflection point for growth and Brook’s addition will further accelerate adoption of our solution among employers.”
