Former Optum Business Unit COO Kirk Schultz Joins Alivia Analytics as Chief Administrative Officer

Alivia Analytics, a leading healthcare payment accuracy solutions provider, has appointed Kirk Schultz as their new Chief Administrative Officer. Schultz will leverage his extensive background in healthcare, compliance, and financial operations in this newly created role, and he is committed to eliminating FWA while simultaneously enhancing the provider experience.

Schultz has a wealth of experience from his senior leadership roles over the past 15 years at Optum Physician Advisor Solutions (formerly Executive Health Resources). For the last 11 years, he served as their Chief Administrative Officer and then GM/Chief Operating Officer. Optum specializes in supporting providers in compliance efforts to capture appropriate reimbursement for medical necessity.

“Kirk’s financial, operations, and industry background in healthcare is a fantastic complement to our leadership team,” said Alex Kormushoff, Chief Operating Officer of Alivia Analytics. “His expertise and oversight support the rapid growth of our company and purpose-built solutions.”

In addition to his professional pursuits, Schultz and his wife are co-founders of Brandon’s Voice, a non-profit organization that raises funds for autism research and supports those affected by autism. They have been committed to giving back to the community since their son, Brandon, was born on the spectrum.

Schultz received his MBA in Finance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BS in Finance from St. Cloud State University.

“To keep health care costs under control, the industry must eliminate fraud, waste, and abuse in the most efficient manner possible without burdening providers with chasing false leads on legitimate care,” added Schultz. “The opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing company with a vast experience base, supportive board, and strong collaborative environment like Alivia’s resonated with me.”
