Health Catalyst taps Eric Topol, Brent James and Timothy Zoph as strategic advisers

Health Catalyst, a data, analytics and decision-support company, is adding three notable healthcare leaders to its team as strategic advisers.

Here are three things to know about the company's newest advisers, listed here in alphabetical order.

1. Brent James, MD, recently left his post as Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare's first chief quality officer. While a leader of the Intermountain Advanced Training Program, he helped train more than 5,000 senior physician, nursing and administrative executives in clinical quality improvement science and methodology.

2. Eric Topol, MD, currently serves as the executive vice president and professor of molecular medicine at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif. In 2016, he was awarded a $207 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to lead part of the agency's Precision Medicine Initiative.

3. Timothy Zoph works at Impact Advisors as its client executive and strategist. He previously served 21 years as the senior vice president of administration and CIO at Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine, where he was twice voted "CIO of the Year" — once by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society in 2003 and again by the Executives Club of Chicago in cooperation with The Association of Information Technology Professionals in 2008. 

"We believe the cumulative effect of the strategic advice of these three industry giants will have a significant, positive impact on the lives of the nearly 100 million patients that our clients serve across the U.S.," Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst, said.
