Daniel J. Klein, President and Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Klein brings over 35 years of executive leadership in healthcare and information technology services to the PAN Foundation. His mission at PAN is twofold: 1) to help seriously ill people get access to the care they need by providing grants to pay for their deductibles, co-payments and coinsurance; and 2) to advocate for more systemic and sustainable solutions to reduce out-of-pocket costs and make treatment more affordable for people with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases.
Since joining the PAN Foundation in 2014, Mr. Klein has expanded PAN’s capacity to help the growing number of patients who need financial assistance, strengthened PAN’s compliance program to ensure that PAN continues to fulfill its mission in strict compliance with regulations, and implemented new technology to enhance the patient experience and better support the needs of healthcare providers and pharmacists.
Mr. Klein previously served as Senior Vice President for the Cystic Fibrosis Services specialty pharmacy and then as Senior Vice President for Patient Access Programs at the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation. His leadership at the CF Foundation led to the steady growth and eventual sale of the CF Services pharmacy to Walgreens. He also launched the CF Patient Assistance Foundation, which provided financial assistance and case management services to underinsured patients living with cystic fibrosis.
In addition to his leadership in patient assistance, Mr. Klein has served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Panurgy Corporation, a leading mid-market information technology services company, and as a consultant on health promotion and health planning for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Pan American Health Organization, respectively.
