Novant Health, one of the Southeast’s leading healthcare systems, today announced the formation of a new business division dedicated to developing and implementing scalable solutions to some of the industry’s most pressing issues. Novant Health Enterprises (NHE) will better enable partnerships with other health care organizations, develop diverse growth, and generate value for Novant Health’s core business as an independent corporate entity. Some Novant Health services will be transferred to this new division, and unique service offerings will be developed and acquired. Novant Health’s progress will be accelerated because of NHE’s investments and partnerships in clinical, operational, and technical developments.

According to PR Newswire, the health system’s new venture is envisioned as an incubator to speed the development of solutions that promise to unlock clinical, financial, and patient value at scale will bring innovative market solutions that empower all patients to live healthier lives – while allowing physicians to focus on providing the best possible care. Over the next five years, Novant Health Enterprises will focus on three core areas: developing transformational clinical capabilities, continued expansion into non-acute settings, and commercializing differentiating digital solutions, all of which will be built on the health system’s considerable scale and prominence, as well as the strength of its strategic partnerships.

“Novant Health has long been at the vanguard of healthcare innovation, developing solutions both internally and through unusual alliances to address the industry’s most pressing issues. This foresight has allowed us to rethink the patient experience, improve care quality and capabilities, and be named the region’s safest healthcare system,” Novant Health’s president and CEO, Carl S. Armato, stated. “I’m excited to see what a unique entity like Novant Health Enterprises will incubate, innovate, and accelerate as we use technological innovation to improve patient, provider, and community outcomes.”

Dean Swindle, executive vice president of Novant Health and president of this new subsidiary, will lead Novant Health Enterprises. Swindle has more than 30 years of experience as a financial and strategic executive in national and regional health systems, where he has established transformational growth initiatives and industry-leading capabilities.

In addition to her position as Novant Health executive vice president and chief transformation and digital officer, Angela Yochem will serve as a chief operating officer and general manager of Novant Health Enterprises. Yochem has over 25 years of expertise in starting and running new businesses, delivering world-class consumer experiences and unique technologies, and developing sophisticated solutions for global corporations at scale to gain a competitive advantage.

“Novant Health Enterprises brings together the industry’s most powerful alliances to execute our mission to make health care extraordinary for all of our patients in every way, every time,” Swindle added. “The events of the last two years have highlighted the value that technology and transformational capabilities can bring to patient care, as most of us have seen in the healthcare industry. Novant Health Enterprises has never been more optimistic about the potential for technological innovation to solve some of health care’s most critical issues, and we are eager to get started.”

“By becoming Novant Health Enterprises, we will be able to harness the potential of innovation and partnerships to achieve further our objective of making our communities healthy, one person at a time,” Yochem stated. “We’ll not only have our finger on the pulse of what’s needed to better care, but we’ll also be able to incubate, design, test, and implement those solutions at a breakneck speed. As we focus on Novant Health Enterprises’ initial key areas in the next months, I’m looking forward to unearthing new prospects.”

Over the coming year, Novant Health Enterprises will continue to refine its operating framework and strategic initiatives.
