Medical Director, Digital Technologies,
SIAVASH SARLATI is the medical director in digital technologies, digital care delivery, at Anthem. He is a practicing emergency physician and brings expertise in health disparities and evidence-based medicine to Anthem’s digital health initiatives. Siavash has spent his first year at Anthem primarily focused on developing and launching the Asthma Digital Study to investigate, in partnership with Apple Inc. and the University of California-Irvine, the impact of a consumer-grade sensor platform on the success of adult asthma self-management. This is a first-of-its-kind digital study sponsored by Anthem to incorporate members from Medicaid cohorts on a national scale. Prior to joining Anthem, Siavash was a full-time clinician in safety-net settings and studied how tech-enabled solutions can help address psychosocial risk factors of youth violence.
