Michael Hunter leads COPE Health Solutions’ PMO Service Line as Chief Information Officer. He is currently engaged at Montefiore, leading the planning, design, and implementation of the internal PMOs at the Montefiore Hudson Valley Collaborative (MHVC) PPS and Montefiore’s Care Management Organization (CMO) to enhance coordination across MHVC, CMO, hospitals, medical group and contracted providers as they transform their care processes away from fee for service to managed care value based contracting.

Prior to engaging at Montefiore, Mr. Hunter led the team supporting the Community Care Collaborative in Texas, a joint venture between Ascension’s largest subsidiary health system Seton Family and the county’s public health district. Under his leadership, the team led multiple project teams comprised of providers, clinic executives, operational leadership and frontline clinic staff to meet all federal waiver deadlines and achieve at least 95% of DSRIP drawdown dollars over the course of three years. During his tenure, Mr. Hunter personally oversaw the development of a centralized PMO to operationalize standard project management processes and tools, enabling PMO staff to maintain a consistent approach to project management, complete projects successfully, and foster a culture of transparency and collaboration.

Before joining COPE Health Solutions, Mr. Hunter led teams developing, integrating, and maintaining solutions for public and private customers including the National Cancer Institute, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Military Health System, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Boston. In these engagements, he led teams testing applications to improve patient safety, enable electronic claims payment, and facilitate enterprise-wide referrals and authorizations. Later he led a technical team developing an infection control surveillance solution under a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, then led teams to deploy and integrate the solution for use by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Massachusetts General Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Boston, and others. He has also been involved in projects to enable health information exchange at the national level, to define a common national standard for providing clinical decision support (CDS) as a service, and to share genomic data for cancer research.

In addition to his consulting work, Mr. Hunter also serves as COPE Health Solutions’ CIO, leveraging his years of experience in information technology to enable COPE Health Solutions’ continued growth through solutions that enable our consulting teams to access the tools, information, and data they need to help our clients succeed.
