David “Fig” Figueredo has over 20 years of experience in the healthcare and information management spaces, having worked with a broad range of hospitals, providers, payers, and government agencies on transformational projects.
His extensive background in EDI created a passion for developing low/no touch process automation through the use of data and applied analytics. Before joining Wave, Fig led the Sales & Business Development group at Change Healthcare. He helped develop products in the audit, coverage discovery, and TPL spaces and savvy go-to-market strategies. At the time of his departure, he was their VP & Solution Architect developing integrated delivery solutions crossing the BPO and technology sectors.
Early in his career, Fig began to understand the root cause of much of the dysfunction and revenue loss for providers originated from fragmented and inaccurate patient data. He determined that those problems could effectively be solved through well-designed eligibility, data integration & validation, and efficient workflow processes.
Using a consultative approach, Fig has spent much of his career working with a broad range of providers to tackle systemic system and process issues. He has successfully created solutions and remediation plans using a comprehensive set of tools and technologies focused on early intervention and workflow automation. He shares his insights by authoring articles and white papers and speaking at industry events such as HFMA, EWC, and other professional organizations.
David received his Bachelor of Science degree from Middle Tennessee State University, where he studied Biology and Chemistry. He’s been married for 20 years to his wife, Jennifer, a passionate public education specialist, and they have two amazingly talented kids.
