Arthur Kapoor, President and CEO of HealthEC, is a creative and driven entrepreneur that has spent the last 35 years building financial, clinical and operational platforms to solve the most perplexing challenges across several industries.
Commissioner Kapoor holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and an MBA from Rutgers University. He pioneered technology that helped business executives visualize data in new and different ways, creating market leadership and differentiation for the clients he served. In 1986, Commissioner Kapoor partnered with fellow entrepreneurs to create Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs for the furniture industry, pioneering the concept of visualizing facilities management floor plans with office furniture, which was acquired by a leading furniture manufacturer.
In 1991, he entered the healthcare arena by founding Med-Link Technologies, which became the fastest growing healthcare claims clearinghouse in the US; Med-Link was subsequently acquired by Emdeon.
In 1997, Commissioner Kapoor founded Infotech Global, Inc. a software development company that uses agile methodologies to build applications for its clients, offering a wide range of services across the entire software application lifecycle. He returned his focus to healthcare in 2005, after noting the continued challenges faced by providers in accessing and using data to drive informed patient care. Commissioner Kapoor was an early pioneer in interoperability and health information exchange, providing the infrastructure for the New Jersey Health Information Network.
In 2012, HealthEC was formed to enable healthcare organizations to manage their population’s health by aggregating information from all sources and translating that knowledge into action. Building on its expertise in data exchange, analytics and workflow, HealthEC developed a full spectrum of solutions to help organizations deliver on the promise of value-based care – improving the quality of care for a population of patients through prevention, care coordination and chronic care management.
Commissioner Kapoor is also a passionate philanthropist. He founded Akluyva in 2010, and continues to ensure that almost 400 orphaned Indian children are provided with food, clothing, education and medical care. He is also a regular speaker and panelist on the lecture circuit of the World Economic Forum addressing Third World Technology challenges, and contributes his free time to counsel startup leaders. In 2011, he was knighted by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta for his charitable work around the world.
