Meet Patrick (Pat) McIntyre, CEO of OneOme. Pat recently joined the OneOme team, and assumed the CEO role on July 1, taking over for outgoing CEO Paul Owen. In his role, he’s charged with leading OneOme into its next stage of business growth and expansion into new markets both in the U.S. and internationally. Pat will work closely with the OneOme board of directors in setting and driving an aggressive growth agenda for OneOme in the coming months and years.
A veteran, both of the U.S. Marine Corps and the healthcare industry, Pat brings extensive experience leading business transformation and growth agendas in some of the largest companies in the U.S. as well as at start-ups. Pat’s most recent role was President and Founder at healthcare consulting company Portage Health Insights. Prior to that, he held executive roles with Anthem, UnitedHealth Group, Aetna and a few other notable payer organizations.
Pat is extremely excited about the potential for pharmacogenomics (PGx) in helping drive the personalization of healthcare. In his words, “There’s not a better time to be working in healthcare. We are at an inflection point in the evolution from traditional healthcare models to the more individualized care promised by precision medicine. I see pharmacogenomics is a cornerstone of that evolution.”
As CEO, Pat sees tremendous opportunity for OneOme. His vision for the organization includes bringing the promise of PGx into routine patient care - both in the U.S. and around the globe. He intends to work with providers and healthcare organizations to raise the profile of PGx, as well as partnering with payers and pharmacy benefit managers. Pat believes that the U.S provider, payer and consumer markets remain virtually untapped opportunities for OneOme and PGx in general and believes that OneOme’s industry leading capabilities are very well positioned to fuel significant growth over the next several years.
With more than 20 years experience in the healthcare industry, Pat understands that a thriving healthcare company needs to look beyond commercial success to a larger mission and vision. Part of what drew him to healthcare in the first place is the ability to make a positive difference for patients. “When we get it right,” he says, “we can eliminate pain and suffering for patients and reduce costs.”
When he’s not at work, Pat enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 children, two of whom are still in college. He and his family enjoy traveling and have made several trips internationally in recent years. Pat is also passionate about martial arts and still spends time practicing in the gym when he can.
