“It is a great honor to receive this award, and it validates the hard work and passion the entire Altruista Health team have dedicated to serving our clients and the health care industry,” said Ashish.

Altruista Health, Inc., an innovative provider of care management technology solutions for health plans and provider organizations, today announced that Ashish Kachru, the company’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Health category in the Mid-Atlantic region. Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Award recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

Ashish was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner in McLean, Virginia on June 15, 2017. As a Mid-Atlantic award winner, he is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 national program. Award winners in several national categories will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017.

In 2007, Ashish identified a growing gap in the health care industry where allied resources could collaborate to solve complex patient issues. He then founded Altruista Health to facilitate the management of patients to achieve better health outcomes, including avoiding hospitalizations and emergency room visits, as well as managing chronic illness and daily living challenges. In ten years, Altruista Health has grown to serve more than 15 million people in 34 states across the nation with the GuidingCare™ platform.

“It is a great honor to receive this award, and it validates the hard work and passion the entire Altruista Health team have dedicated to serving our clients and the health care industry,” said Ashish.

Since 1986, EY has honored entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation and discipline have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Now in its 31st year, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., and Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn.
