Dan Mingle, MD MS
Executive Chairman

Dr. Dan Mingle, MD MS, has decades of experience in healthcare and motivation for providing better patient care that led him to start Mingle Health, now Mingle Health.

He started owning and operating a small group family practice in rural Maine, and moving through roles at a small hospital to residency, and as faculty at Dartmouth Medical School’s Family Practice Residency, where he received advanced training in measuring health care performance and leading change in complex medical organizations. He then served in a leadership role in clinical informatics at MaineGeneral Medical Center and sought additional training and practice in Transact SQL. Along the way he developed a national reputation for quality reporting and in 2008 was named one of nine "Innovators of the Year" by Healthcare Informatics magazine.

In 2012, he founded Mingle Health, eager to devote his passions and skills to creating best-in-class products and services designed to help providers and medical organizations thrive in the business and practice of healthcare. He used his first-hand insight into many of the problems that plague our health care system, including bureaucratic inefficiencies and ever-increasing costs, to grow the company into an industry leader focused on through transforming healthcare through data-driven solutions. In 2018, Mingle Health merged with SilverVue, and Dr. Mingle became the executive chairman of Mingle Health.
