The son of Yugoslavian immigrants, Rick brings over twenty years of president-level and CEO-level leadership experience operating within venture, private equity, public (IPO), and public service (cabinet-level government) environments.
He has led businesses through a wide variety of complex challenges, including market conversions to new clinical standards of care, turnaround to growth, merger, change in service delivery models, and shift from private company to public company status (IPO).
Rick began his career at Procter & Gamble and McKinsey & Company, with environments deeply ingrained with proud teams, cultures, and fact-based decision-making. From 1990 to 2002, he held various leadership roles at Becton Dickinson, ultimately serving as an executive officer and president of its worldwide diagnostics sector. Following Becton Dickinson, Rick led LipoScience, Inc., a venture-backed, personalized diagnostic company, as the company’s CEO from the turn-around stage, through the growth stage, to the successful initial public offering (IPO) in January 2013.

Alan Kronhaus, M.D. co- founded Doctors Making Housecalls (DMHC) with his wife, Shohreh Taavoni, MD in 2002. Purpose-built to improve access to care for frail, elderly, complex patients, DMHC grew into a centrally managed, “geographically dispersed” multispecialty group of 135 clinicians supported by 180 administrative support personnel providing services throughout North and South Carolina. The practice was acquired by Eventus WholeHealth in November 2020, but not before the practice model it pioneered — formally known as home-based primary care – became the preferred method of delivering comprehensive healthcare to complex, high-cost patients living at home or in some form of senior housing.
DMHC was not Dr. Kronhaus’ first entrepreneurial success. As Medical Director of a rural healthcare delivery system, he designed and implemented the healthcare delivery system for Yellowstone National Park, and helped establish and operate 30 primary care practices in underserved rural communities throughout the intermountain west.
Before DMHC, however, Kronhaus was best known for creating the country’s first organized nationwide locum tenens service, KRON Medical. After 13 years as CEO, he sold KRON Medical to CompHealth, its main competitor in temporary physician services. The combined organization spearheaded an industry now estimated to be over $7 billion annually, and in the process established locum tenens as a new job role which currently attracts roughly 50,000 clinicians each year.
Dr. Kronhaus graduated AOA from Boston University’s Six-Year Medical Program anddid an internal medicine residency at the University of Utah Affiliated Hospitals in Salt Lake City. After residency, he worked for five years as a primary care clinician and then medical director of Health Systems Research Institute (HSRI), the country’s largest rural health care delivery system at that time, before being recruited back to academia as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Capel Hill. As a Clinical Scholar, Dr. Kronhaus studied the organization, delivery, and financing of health services, with an emphasis on innovative strategies for improving access to care for underserved populations.
In addition to leading DMHC, Kronhaus has published extensively in peer-reviewed academic journals over the past decade, and presented to a variety of audiences onhow to improve quality and reduce costs for complex, high-cost patients.
