April 09, 2024, Richmond, VA

The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) has hired veteran technology expert and healthcare-access advocate Ankit Mathur as its new chief technology officer. Mathur started on March 25.

At UNOS, Mathur serves in a critical leadership role and is part of the team responsible for the development and execution of the organization’s strategy. He manages UNOS’ IT functions and oversees the company’s information technology, including for the organ matching system and policy development.

As the organization’s chief technology officer, Mathur interacts frequently with the board of directors and government contract officers, as well as national and international scientific, medical and business communities supporting the company’s work to strengthen the organ donation and transplant system.

Prior to joining UNOS, Mathur served as the chief delivery officer for the U.S. Digital Service, where he developed digital strategy for the White House and federal government. He oversaw more than 200 technologists who were responsible for projects across more than 30 government agencies.

“A secure, reliable and innovative technology system is absolutely critical in our work to help patients across the country get the lifesaving organs they need,” said Maureen McBride, Ph.D., CEO of UNOS. “Ankit’s extensive experience makes him uniquely suited for the chief technology officer position.”

Before working for the federal government, Mathur co-founded Roundtrip Health and served as its chief product and technology officer. Roundtrip created the nation’s first digital transportation marketplace for non-emergency medical transportation. His efforts helped improve access to healthcare for thousands of patients in hundreds of health systems across the country.

Mathur earned a master’s degrees in business administration and information systems management and a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from Virginia Commonwealth University.
