Healthcare Industry Veteran John Shagoury Joins IntelyCare

QUINCY, MAY 1, 2019 – IntelyCare today announced that John Shagoury has been appointed President & Chief Operating Officer, a newly created position at IntelyCare, an expansion to their executive team. Shagoury joined the company in early February 2019.

Shagoury will assume the responsibility of accelerating growth and market expansion, evolving the company’s offerings, and driving operational excellence as they continue to scale their business and continually enhance their workforce management solution.

“I am extremely excited to join this dynamic team as we continue to bring technology-enabled innovations to an increasingly frustrated marketplace,” said Shagoury. “IntelyCare modernizes the traditionally inefficient and manual process of scheduling shifts at post-acute healthcare facilities; their expertise in post-acute staffing, coupled with their unique approach to workforce management optimization, presents an opportunity to truly reinvent the market.”

Shagoury has a distinctive tenure of executive management, sales and marketing experience in the software and healthcare spaces; prior to this appointment, he served as Chief Executive Officer of Eliza Corporation, a market leading analytics and member engagement services platform serving health insurance organizations. Prior to Eliza he served as President of the Healthcare Division at Nuance Communications, Inc. Prior roles include President of Dragon Systems, President of Kubi Software and President of Corporate Software & Technologies.

“I believe John will bring an integral new dimension to our team,” said David Coppins, IntelyCare’s Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “He has extensive experience in healthcare and a demonstrated track record of success growing strong teams and capitalizing on a business’s best qualities.”

In addition to Shagoury, IntelyCare is pleased to announce that Dr. Ben Tengelsen has recently agreed to join IntelyCare to lead their advanced data science organization. Tengelsen, an accomplished data scientist and a recipient of a Carnegie Mellon PhD in Economics, joined IntelyCare from Wayfair, where he pioneered new pricing and preference matching methods to intelligently steer customers to a desired outcome. He will be leading a team focused on elevating post-acute workforce data, for the first time, to the point of truly designing and optimizing the most effective and cost efficient skilled nursing workforces through a robust and comprehensive set of matching capabilities and dynamic market variables.

“Ben’s unique understanding of big data provides IntelyCare with the ability to mine our deep data sets at a hyper-local level to apply dynamic changes to our machine learning matching algorithms” said David Coppins. “Ben’s expertise will help our skilled nursing facility clients receive the perfect clinician match at the time they need it the most while also helping IntelyCare to achieve greater market penetration and a happier nursing workforce.”

IntelyCare recently completed their Series A in November 2018, raising $10.8M.

Announcing the 2018 Intelygence Scholarship Winner

Announcing the 2018 Intelygence Scholarship Winner

Every year, around the time of Florence Nightingale’s birthday, the American Nurses Association recognizes and honors nurses across the country by celebrating National Nurses Week. This year’s theme was Inspire, Innovate, and Influence.  As an employer of nurses and nursing assistants, IntelyCare was pleased to celebrate National Nurses Week and those on our team who inspire, innovate, and influence each and every day.

To establish our commitment to our team, IntelyCare was thrilled to introduce our first annual Intelygence Scholarship. This $1,000 award was designed to recognize an IntelyPro who is furthering their education in the field of nursing.   After reviewing dozens of applications, we are pleased to announce the inaugural winner for this award:

The 2018 scholarship goes to Pennsylvania CNA,  Claudeen Nkemakolam!  Here are some excerpts from Claudeen’s submission:

“Being able to care for people in such a personal way is enormously gratifying—the way everyone should feel about their job. My job gives me an opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of others: helping individuals heal and feel better. My job provides a natural environment for me to showcase my attributes as a compassionate and caring person. My job allows me to grow and develop personally; It teaches me patience, tolerance and empathy.”


“It is not only important to find a job that you love to do, but, it is also important to find a good company to work for. IntelyCare is a great company! The app makes it so convenient to choose shifts. I love the flexibility the company offers. As an employee, I am given complete control of my work schedule. Also, I can keep track of my pay in real time. They value their employees.”


“The financial burden of going back to school is never an easy one, with rising cost of tuition and books. The money from this scholarship will be well spent. It will go towards tuition, books, and other school related expenses. I plan to use my skills and talent as a nurse in the highest capacity. Not only will I strive to become a model nurse, but I also dream of starting a non-profit organization.”


We are thrilled for the opportunity to recognize this fabulous IntelyPro!! Please join me in congratulating Claudeen on being our company’s first winner of this scholarship.  Way to go Claudeen!!
