About Dr.Chandra Bondugula



sir smile

I am a Physician and a senior healthcare executive with more than two decades of expertise in Patient Care, Hospital Administration, Graduate Medical Education, Healthcare Informatics, Digital Transformation, Health Innovation, and Value-based Co-management Programs. 

I am the founding ACGME Designated Institutional Official at North Alabama Medical Center, Florence, Alabama and the Chairman of the Graduate Medical Education Committee.

I serve on the boards of American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), Alabama Chapter and Shoals Community Clinic. Besides, I am the Guest Faculty for Value Based Care Program and Population Health at Boise State University.

I believe that the role of a Physician goes far beyond saving patients’ lives. Being a Health-Tech Entrepreneur and Administrator, I aim to educate and empower physicians to be the Future Healthcare Leaders.

During my two decades of practice in Healthcare and Medicine, I came across challenges and variabilities in patient care safety and quality and disproportionate healthcare costs. 

I initiated and conducted many programs and projects to fix these challenges with the right use of technology, including multiple Co-Management programs, and Value-based Care designs.
