“Welcoming Tom and Seth to the Elation leadership team supports our continued work to facilitate and elevate the delivery of primary care in any setting,” said Kyna Fong, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Elation Health. “When primary care clinicians are able to sustainably and effectively deliver care, patients benefit from stronger clinician relationships, the highest-quality personalized care, and better health outcomes. Tom and Seth are essential to our strategy to ensure that primary care clinicians are supported through Elation’s platform.”

He joins Elation as general counsel, where he is responsible for working alongside the executive team, providing advice on a variety of legal and business aspects, as well as supporting the team to maintain a culture that combines the highest standards of integrity with responsive, practical approaches.
