Industry Vet Gregory Tucci Joins Rising with Value-Based Care Focus

Chicago, IL – June 27, 2017 – Longtime industry sales executive Gregory Tucci has joined Rising Medical Solutions (Rising) as Regional Vice President of Business Development. In his new position, Greg will lead client acquisition and retention efforts in the Southeast region as Rising continues to grow its market share.

Most recently MedRisk’s Vice President of Business Development and Sales, Greg has held sales leadership roles at managed care organizations for nearly 30 years. Other prior employers include One Call Care Management, MedFocus, and PMSI.

“Some of America’s highest charging hospitals are concentrated in the South, and nearly half are located in Florida,” says Timothy Howlin, Rising’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “As payers look to reduce their financial burden without compromising quality, Greg will be instrumental in expanding Rising’s value-based Surgical Care Program, as well as our other care management solutions, throughout the Southeast.”

Responsible for developing new opportunities, Greg will work closely with Rising’s client services and program implementation departments.

“It’s exciting to see the workers’ compensation community start to embrace value-based care,” says Tucci. “I’m eager to be part of an organization that is pushing the industry forward and looks for new ways to drive customer success.”
