Abhinav Shashank is the CEO and cofounder of Innovaccer, a leading San Francisco-based healthcare IT company dedicated to accelerating innovation in healthcare. Abhinav is a champion of accelerated healthcare innovation and transformation that improves clinical, financial, and operational outcomes for providers, payers, and life sciences organizations.

He cofounded Innovaccer to fulfill his vision to unlock the value of data through a common cloud framework (the Innovaccer platform), enabling healthcare stakeholders to unify patient data across systems and care settings—including 80+ EHR interfaces—and leverage unified patient records to drive integrated workflows, coordinated care, and analytic insights crucial to effective value-based care delivery.

This foundation led to Innovaccer’s success as a national leader for population health management technology and solutions, with more than 30 awards and 90 analyst recognitions from Gartner, KLAS, Forbes, Black Book, UCSF, Deloitte, and others. In 2022 and 2023, the Innovaccer platform was ranked healthcare’s #1 Data and Analytics platform by KLAS. In 2021, Innovaccer was recognized as Best in KLAS for Population Health Management. In 2023, Black Book ranked Innovaccer the #1 End-To-End Hospital System Population Health Technology Platform.

Abhinav’s leadership has enabled the company to win more than 60 healthcare organizations as customer partners, with Innovaccer’s solutions now deployed across more than 1,600 care settings in the U.S., enabling more than 96,000 providers to transform care delivery and work collaboratively with payers and life sciences companies. Innovaccer has helped its customers unify health records for more than 54 million people and generate over $1B in cumulative cost savings.

His work resulted in the latest round of Series E investment at a $3.2 billion valuation, driven by rapid customer adoption of the Innovaccer platform. The round was led by Mubadala Capital, with participation from existing investors B Capital Group, Microsoft’s M12 fund, OMERS Growth Equity, Dragoneer, Steadview Capital, Tiger Global Management, and new investors Whale Rock Capital Management, Avidity Partners, and Schonfeld Strategic Advisors. Innovaccer’s Series E round brings the total capital raised by the company to over $375 million.

The company now has seven locations worldwide, including offices in the U.S., India, the U.K., and the United Arab Emirates.

Abhinav is an influential thought leader and sought-after speaker, having published over 300 articles for international media outlets. He was named to Forbes “30 Under 30 Asia: Enterprise Tech,” and was recognized by Becker's Hospital Review as one of the “Top 60 rising leaders in U.S. healthcare under 40.”
