Julie Murchinson joins AVIA as an Executive-in-Residence


Chicago February 13, 2020 – AVIA, the leading partner for digital insights, strategic guidance, and consulting services, today announced that Julie Murchinson is joining its team as an Executive-in-Residence. 

With more than 20 years as a healthcare innovator, Julie was most recently the CEO of Health Evolution, which brings together the most influential leaders from across the industry to inspire forward-thinking strategies that drive health for everyone. During her five years as CEO, Health Evolution Summit, their highly successful and invitation-only gathering, deepened in significance and size as the leading event for CEOs, innovators, policymakers, and investors. 

“The case for digital to enable healthcare’s future has never been more clear,” says Julie. “Over the years I’ve watched AVIA become an incredibly valuable partner to some of the nation’s most prominent health systems, helping them develop and execute their digital strategies. I’m excited to spend time with this smart and talented team and explore how their expertise can have an even broader and deeper impact.”

AVIA works with 50+ healthcare organizations to accelerate their digital strategies. Members of the AVIA Innovator Network access unique insights, participate in collaborative strategic initiatives, and engage in consulting services to increase speed and assurance for their digital transformations.

“We take great pride in being the digital partner of choice for C-suite executives seeking to transform,” says Linda Finkel, President of AVIA. “We’re honored to have Julie bring her considerable vision and thought leadership to this important work. Systems and plans see little choice but to leverage digital to navigate the colliding forces of consumerism, industry disruption, growing care needs, and escalating cost. We want all the best minds and leaders working in service of our collective mission to improve care and health—I have no doubt that Julie’s impact and influence will be felt quickly on that journey.” 

Julie joins a robust roster of Advisors and Executives-in-Residence at AVIA, including Andy Slavitt, former Acting Administrator of CMS and General Partner at Town Hall Ventures, Dr. Molly Coye, former Commissioner of Health for the State of New Jersey and Director of the California Department of Health Services, and Steve Lieber, former President and CEO of HIMSS. 

Prior to Health Evolution, Julie was Managing Director at Manatt Health Solutions where she concurrently co-founded the Health 2.0 Accelerator, a not-for-profit association to advance consumer-centric health care.
