The Amazon-J.P. Morgan-Berkshire Hathaway health care venture has reportedly named Jack Stoddard, a former general manager of digital health at Comcast, as its chief operations officer, Healthcare Dive reports.
Among other professional achievements, Stoddard helped create UnitedHealth’s Optum, a data analytics and claims processing platform. The engine generated 44 percent of its parent company’s profit last year.
Stoddard, according to the report, started as the new COO on Tuesday, Sept. 4.
The health care venture, announced earlier this year, aims to deliver “high-quality and transparent healthcare at a reasonable cost.”
“We will be using top management, big data, virtual technology, better customer engagement and the improved creation of customer choice,” J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon wrote in a letter to shareholders.
