PHILADELPHIA, PA — Override Health has announced the appointment of Kili Preitauer as its new Chief Executive Officer. In her new role, Preitauer will oversee daily operations and lead the company’s efforts to expand its integrated care model for chronic pain sufferers across the nation.

Jennie Shulkin, the company’s co-founder and founding CEO, will transition to the role of President and continue serving on the board. “It’s been a privilege to lead Override from its inception into what it is now – a company improving the lives of numerous people with chronic pain who haven’t found help elsewhere,” said Shulkin. “Kili’s leadership and proven track record in driving hyper-growth strategies targeting health plans, providers, and health information technology companies make her well-suited to lead Override into its next phase of growth.”

Override Health addresses gaps in traditional pain care by employing virtual teams of physicians, physical therapists, and behavioral health providers specialized in chronic pain. These professionals work together to optimize patient outcomes. Since its launch in 2021, the company has expanded to nine states and formed partnerships with over 20 health plans, provider groups, and other stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem.

Preitauer brings a wealth of experience to Override Health, having previously held leadership roles at Tuesday Health, a Valtruis company. Over her 20-year career, she has specialized in business development and client relationship management for managed care, healthcare technology, and service organizations. Her expertise in accelerating growth in value-based care initiatives positions her well to lead Override Health.

Expressing her enthusiasm for the new role, Preitauer said, “What Jennie Shulkin, David Shulkin, and the Override Health team have been able to accomplish over the past three years is truly a bright spot for the pain management space. Under their visionary leadership, Override Health has become a beacon of innovation and compassion for patients facing a variety of chronic pain challenges. I am committed to building upon this legacy, continuing to prioritize patient care, and driving our mission forward with dedication and purpose.”
