ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Khosrow Shotorbani, the CEO of TriCore Reference Laboratories and a high-profile figure in the New Mexico health care industry, has left the company.
As first reported by Albuquerque Business First, Shotorbani’s LinkedIn profile shows that he left TriCore at the end of last year; no current employer is listed. The TriCore website lists Michael J. Crossey, the chief medical officer, as interim CEO.
Neither TriCore nor Shotorbani have responded to multiple requests for comment.
TriCore is a not-for-profit organization co-sponsored by Presbyterian Healthcare Services and University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. Its core labs perform about 10.5 million clinical tests a year, and the company has 30 patient care sites throughout the state. TriCore employs about 1,300 people in New Mexico.
At an Albuquerque Economic Forum last year, Khosrow said the company was migrating toward using patient data for “population health management and targeted intervention, especially of high-risk populations.” He pointed to an example in which TriCore communicated with women’s care providers in the state after learning that about 1,800 New Mexican women had “key laboratory indicators” showing they were at risk of delivering babies with complications that could lead to neonatal intensive care. The company has also focused on logistics in recent years, forming a partnership with a Chicago, Ill.-based company
A Jan. 30 review on job site Glassdoor.com said the company’s CEO had “resigned.”
In 2015, TriCore announced it had merged with the Vernon, Conn.-based IT company Rhodes Group.
Rhodes has not yet responded to a request for comment.
