Russ Staheli loves data. A questioner at heart, he is constantly trying to create the most informed decisions from far too much data, much to the chagrin of his wife and 5 kids. In a stroke of luck, 14 years ago he stumbled into an internship with quality improvement guru Brent James at Intermountain Healthcare where he found an endless stream of data informed decisions needing to be made. His mind would never be bored again and his marriage was saved. He joined Health Catalyst 6 years ago after gaining a deep understanding of the business of healthcare at Intermountain Healthcare and the Duke University Health System. Along this journey he received a degree in Health Services Research and a masters in Health Policy and Administration from UNC Chapel Hill. Russ currently leads Health Catalyst’s Analytic Services Organization.
