MIAMI, June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Genuine Health Group, known for its forward-looking approach to value-based healthcare, announced today the appointment of Gamil Kharfan as the company's first chief growth officer. In this position, Mr. Kharfan will accelerate expansion of the company's physician network – primary care doctors who participate in Genuine Health's ACO and/or its Medicare Advantage programs. In addition, he will work closely with these physician practices to increase patient participation in the company's value-based healthcare models.
Immediately prior to joining Genuine Health, he served as CEO of Claro Insurance, a multi-state health insurance brokerage with licensed agents working in the Medicare, individual, and commercial insurance markets.
"Gamil's combination of unbridled energy and strategic focus paved the way for Claro's success and growth, quickly becoming one of the major producers for its insurance carriers," said Joe Caruncho, Genuine Health's CEO. "I anticipate he will apply that same energy to building his team here at Genuine and achieving greater scale for the company."
Genuine Health recently announced the purchase of Health Care Advisor Services (HCAS), a management service organization (MSO) that administers risk arrangements between physicians and Medicare Advantage health plans. Mr. Kharfan will work closely with HCAS doctors who joined the Genuine Health family to identify further opportunities for synergy, including aligning these doctors' traditional Medicare patients with Genuine Health ACO. In addition, he will apply a more focused, more strategic approach to the company's overall growth, particularly in attracting like-minded, high performing physicians.
"I have seen how doctors respond to Gamil's focus on making their practices successful," said Dr. Orlando Lopez-Fernandez, the company's chief medical officer and co-founder. "He understands physicians' circumstances, and they appreciate that insight and empathy."
In addition to its ACO and Medicare Advantage divisions, Genuine Health Group operates Genuine Health At Home, which delivers an array of medical, behavioral, and social services in a home environment. The diversified company has already achieved significant savings for Medicare and has awarded a share of the savings to its participating physicians.
