Columbia Business School this week announced that Surya N. Mohapatra, former chairman and chief executive officer of Quest Diagnostics Incorporated, will be its next executive-in-residence.

He advocates on behalf of patients, calling for increased patient empowerment and accountability to improve healthcare and reduce costs.

Mohaptra’s areas of interest include patient centricity, growth strategy, global health, information technology and innovation. He joined Quest Diagnostics in 1999, and before that he served as senior vice president and a member of the executive committee of Picker International, now part of Phillips Medical Systems.
