There, Ms. Cosgrove engaged numerous academic medical centers to secure service line metrics (outcome data) for inclusion into Castlight’s’ “Health Navigation” App. The App, purchased by hundreds of Fortune 500 and 100 companies, enables employees to “shop” for healthcare based on quality and cost.

During her tenure, Ms. Cosgrove contributed to the development of a “second‐opinion e-consultation and management service” to address serious illness tendered by a network of prestigious US-based, academic medical centers. This service is sold globally by American International Group (AIG) as a “rider” to insurance policies. The service is also purchased by banks for its credit card and wealth management clients.

Prior to joining WorldCare, Ms. Cosgrove clerked on the 8th District Court of Appeals of Ohio. She received her JD with distinction from Case Western Reserve University.
