Most recently, Vinay took on the role of National Primary & Virtual Care Transformation Director of a prominent, well-funded, start-up company, Carbon Health. In his role, he was responsible for building a unique virtual primary care model for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts to care for MA-based employers with a national presence. He was instrumental in creating a standardized patient and PCP engagement model to facility quality gap closure and an eye towards reduced total cost of care. Utilizing Carbon’s patient centric EHR and integrated services (Virtual Diabetes, Collaborative Mental Health and Urgent Care Clinics) are key components to this approach. Vinay was responsible for creating a standardized process and system improvements to recruit and retain high quality PCPs. He was also responsible for maintaining high quality PC within 50 Carbon Health clinics. He was also involved in creating a more longitudinal patient record approach in the Carbon home-grown EHR and also in incorporating AI to streamline charting. As the owner of a prominent hospitalist company, Platinum Medical Group (PMG), in the Beverly Hills/Los Angeles marketplace, Vinay orchestrated its acquisition by a reputable, Optum owned hospitalist company, Sound Inpatient Physicians, for significant value.

His focus was on continuous quality improvement, optimal outcomes, strict compliance, and high ethical standards. Employing his data analytics and population health management skills, he strategically positioned the group to be part of the CMS’s Bundle Payment Care Improvement Advanced (BPCIA) program. By doing so, PMG became significantly valuable and was able to garner a much higher than average EBITDA multiple on acquisition. During his time as a practicing clinician, he was able to identify a gap in care coordination and launched a startup to offer secure mobile care coordination amongst all the providers on a care team for a particular patient that spanned all care settings, including the hospital, nursing homes, and homes of patients. Finally, Vinay has also created a top ranking and profitable medical spa in the Los Angeles area, one of the most competitive beauty markets in the world.
