He will continue to serve as a member of the board of directors at least through the remainder of his 2024 term.

“I am proud of the business that we have built together, which over my years as CEO has grown from an early-stage vision of transforming vascular care to a leading provider of digital health solutions for chronic disease management,” said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. “It has been an honor to lead our team and I am confident the capable leadership in place will continue to deliver high quality solutions to our customers.”

Dr. Pan has served as a member of Semler Scientific’s board of directors since May 2014.

Dr. Pan has vast medical director experience, including his current appointments at Banner Health and San Francisco Health Plan. Dr. Pan holds an M.B.A. from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and an M.D. and Ph.D. from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and a B.S. in Biology from Johns Hopkins University.

“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Doug for his commitment and notable contributions to Semler starting in 2010. He has been instrumental in the evolution of the company, and I look forward to continuing to work with him as a member of our board,” said Dr. Pan. “I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve as CEO of Semler Scientific and lead the company into its next phase of growth. I believe Semler has diagnostic tools that will unlock a new paradigm in cardiovascular care, as well as create value for its stockholders. Our products will increase access, promote health equity and enable earlier diagnosis of progressive diseases that affect millions of people globally.”

Dr. Abbie Leibowitz will succeed Dr. Pan on Semler Scientific’s Audit Committee, joining Mr. Dan Messina and Ms. Cindy Moon, with Mr. Messina assuming the role as Chair of the Audit Committee; and Mr. Messina will succeed Dr. Pan on Semler Scientific’s Compensation Committee, joining Dr. Leibowitz, who remains Chair of such committee.
