Mark Cohen

Executive in Residence at MATTER

Mark’s career in healthcare has taken him from a combined MD-PhD concentrating on applied mathematical applications in cardiology, to private practice as a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, elected medical staff leadership roles, the Chief of Quality of the Piedmont Heart Institute and most recently the Chief Medical Officer of Piedmont Atlanta Hospital, from which he recently retired.

His particular focus during his time as a medical administrator has been to understand the environment of healthcare delivery, whether in the office, the hospital or with the patient at home, and work to engineer that environment to better deliver the care that will result in higher value: improved outcomes, efficiency and satisfaction, with reduced errors and reduced cost.
