Mallory Tai Taylor, Vice President of DAS Health, has been recognized in the Business Observer’s 2016 40 Under 40 selections.
Each year, the Business Observer selects 40 individuals under 40 years old from the Gulf Coast business community. Carefully selected from nominations and original reporting, these individuals represent the best and brightest from Tampa to Naples. In selecting this year’s honorees, the paper’s editors looked for candidates who are entrepreneurial, even if they don’t own their own businesses.
“There are a lot of publications that do similar lists each year,” says Kat Hughes, Business Observer executive editor. “We wanted our list to stand apart as a group of young professionals who aren’t afraid to take charge and take risks in their business. They are willing to try new things and put their ideas into action. To us, this is what it means to be a business leader, and we feel these 40 individuals embody that spirit.”
DAS Health, a leading provider of health IT and management solutions nationwide, has served patients and providers since 2003. Mallory Tai has served in numerous positions with DAS Health, rising through the ranks from her first position as a Marketing Manager to Director of Client Services, Director of RCM, and now serving as Vice President. Her responsibilities have included building an entirely new RCM billing department from the ground up, overseeing four major acquisitions in 8 months, and contributing to the organizations development and growing revenue.
In the last year Mallory oversaw the creation of assessURhealth™, a mental and behavioral health application offering clinicians the ability to screen for multiple mental health needs. The app, endorsed by 18th U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin, addresses a growing need across the United States and improves patient care. Mallory was instrumental as Chief Architect of the program and cofounder of assessURhealth™.
“Mallory has been a key player in our continued growth, with an eye for the strategic evolution and long term plan for DAS,” CEO David Schlaifer said of Mallory’s contributions, “she is a force for positive change and is more than deserving of this recognition.”
