Pearl Health, a leading physician enablement technology and value-based care marketplace company, is thrilled to announce a strategic addition to its executive team. Matthew Solnit, a seasoned software engineer and technology leader, is assuming the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) role at Pearl. 

Solnit comes to Pearl from Akamai Technologies, where he served as Senior Director of Engineering, leading the team that built and ran Akamai mPulse and Akamai CloudTest, products that measured and tested performance for some of the biggest companies in the Fortune 500. Among his many achievements in this role include transforming a 50-person team into a modern Agile Release Train and leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework. Previous to Akamai, Solnit was co-founder and served in a number of roles at SOASTA Inc for over 11 years, most recently as the CTO and SVP of Engineering. Solnit has also worked for companies such as Oracle, Iteration Software, and Momentis System.

He holds an undergraduate degree in computer science from University of California San Diego, and trained in project management with Stanford’s Center for Professional Development. In his spare time, Solnit enjoys spending time with his kids, tending his beehives, and working in his garden.

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to solve real-world problems in healthcare, working with state-of-the-art technology and a super-dynamic team,” said Solnit.

“As Pearl accelerates its mission to help providers access value and practice medicine as they see fit, we believe that a sound technology platform that is responsive, intuitive, and supportive of optimum patient outcomes while keeping costs low remains crucial,” explained Pearl CEO Michael Kopko. “Given Matt’s long-standing track record in big data, complex tech solutions, and leading sophisticated engineering teams, Matt’s expertise and leadership on the team will be pivotal. This is a major win for both Pearl and our expanding Primary Care network.”

Pearl Executive Chairman Jeffrey De Flavio, M.D., of venture firm AlleyCorp, commented, “The addition of Matt to our leadership team is a critical step forward in Pearl’s journey to address the ever-growing concerns that face primary care doctors.” 

Pearl Board member Vineeta Agarwala, M.D., Ph.D., general partner at venture firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), added, “We are thrilled to welcome Matt to the team. He will help ensure Pearl’s ability to empower physicians with differentiated tools and insights in the complex market of value-based care solutions, especially those addressing Medicare’s ACO REACH model. Leveraging Matt’s leadership in the development of Pearl’s technology stack will be vital to meeting this moment.”

Pearl Health provides a first-of-its-kind marketplace for value-based programs, like Medicare’s new ACO REACH Model (formerly known as Direct Contracting), and an innovative physician enablement platform to help physicians succeed in value-based programs. 

Primary care providers (PCPs) partner with Pearl to get access to advanced payment models, support to succeed in shared savings arrangements, and user-friendly technology with world-class analytics that enable clinicians to deliver quality care at a lower cost to the patients who need it most. 

PCPs use Pearl’s reimbursement methodologies, software, and marketplace partners to stabilize revenue and enable informed clinical decisions, all while reducing the administrative burden of participating in value-based programs. 

Pearl leverages the collective experience of its team of doctors, technologists, data scientists and health plan specialists to enable its provider partners to deliver better care and reduce costs, while keeping earnings high and helping restore provider well-being.
