PLEASANTON, Calif., April 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- IrisVision, the leader in digital vision technologies, today announced health services leader Larry Leisure, co-founder and managing partner of Chicago Pacific Founders, is bringing his more than four decades of leadership experience and insight in the health and managed care industry to the company's board of directors.

"My career has been focused on identifying promising healthcare innovation and accelerating commercialization," said Leisure. "The promise of IrisVision's Digital Vision Care platform has the potential to be life-changing for those whose sight stands to be preserved through earlier detection as well as those who already have low vision and need help to see again. That's a vision for the future I can get behind."

With his "better care, fairer price" guiding motivation, he has been the driving force for success in a number of leading-edge health tech and managed care entities.

From ADVI's Rimbursement and Health Policy Advisory Services to Healthspottr to Chicago Pacific Founders, he recognizes and capitalizes on opportunities for better healthcare practices, policies and possibilities.

Larry formerly served as an operating Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers and spearheaded their entry in digital health. He also served as a Global Managing Partner for Health Vertical at Accenture. Larry is a Senior Advisor to Stanford BioDesign, supporting their mission to innovate a healthier world for all and serves as Chairman of the UCSF Rosenman Institute sitting at the intersection of academia and innovation to help identify promising innovation and accelerate commercialization.
