Dr. Kate Cordell, Ph.D., M.P.H.

President, Chief Scientific Officer and Co-Founder at Opeeka

Dr. Cordell is a nationwide thought leader for behavioral health technology, integrating data systems to support a whole- person approach to care. She has built models for federal, state, county, healthcare provider and community-based agencies to convert behavioral health and social program data into decisions and decisions into positive outcomes. Dr. Cordell works to identify whether individuals and families are improving during care. She is especially interested in what works for whom. Every person and family have a story, often complex but also sewn with common thread. Dr. Cordell uses longitudinal analysis methods to model the changing patterns in these complex tapestries, hoping to identify common elements of design.
