Chief Strategy Officer, Sonic Healthcare USA, Austin, TX


Dr. Philip Chen is a board-certified pathologist and CSO at Sonic Healthcare USA, and has been practicing pathology and running laboratories in commercial, nonprofit, and academic settings.

Dr. Chen founded Cognoscenti Health Institute in 2002, which was acquired by Sonic Healthcare. He also ran the clinical laboratories across two health systems: University of Miami, and Jackson Health Systems in South Florida.

Throughout his career, Dr. Chen has explored ways to practice laboratory medicine outside of the laboratories. In recent years, his focus has been on using clinical and financial informatics to deliver value-based services and constructing new, value- and outcome-based reimbursement arrangements.
