ATLANTA, April 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HSBlox named healthcare industry leader John Schwartz as its chief revenue officer, the company announced today.
HSBlox enables Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) risk-stratification, care coordination and permissioned data sharing through its digital health platform. HSBlox builds bridges among payers, providers and community care networks to address the challenges of health equity to empower patients to lead healthier lives.

"John brings an array of experience in the healthcare and technology sectors as we embark on our next stage of growth with healthcare stakeholders to power the digital communication needed to impact SDOH," said Rahul Sharma, CEO of HSBlox. "During his career, John has been asked to attack new markets, build growth strategies and retain clients. John has delivered on those challenges."
Roughly $4 trillion is spent on healthcare annually in the U.S. Despite this massive expenditure, roughly 80% of health outcomes are attributed to social, behavioral and environmental factors. HSBlox applies sophisticated technologies from its work in healthcare, financial services and supply chain management to streamline SDOH operational challenges of data exchange, patient consent management, and referral optimization.
"What drew me to Rahul and the HSBlox team is their laser focus on changing healthcare for the better," Schwartz said. "HSBlox and its executive team have a demonstrated track record of bringing technology to market, solving complex problems, and delivering value. And, for me, value is the key. If we focus our efforts on helping our clients differentiate themselves and win more in the market, then our growth will take care of itself. And, most importantly, the healthcare consumer wins."
The subject of changing healthcare for the better becomes personal for many people, including Schwartz.
"As healthcare consumers, we all have stories about frustrating experiences involving loved ones who needed an advocate for care coordination or faced a difficult financing issue that suddenly grips the entire family. Healthcare doesn't always work the way it should, or one would expect," he said.
