Eugene Krishnan


Eugene Krishnan, Chief Financial Officer, is on a mission to promote financial sustainability for Jaan Health (the company behind Phamily) and our clients. His journey to Jaan Health started on his first day of college at Columbia University when he met his freshman year roommate: Nabeel Kaukab. Over the past 25 years, they have developed a deeply trusting relationship. 

Before joining the team at Jaan Health, Eugene served as the CFO for several healthcare companies. During that time, he encountered the breadth of business cases that sought to optimize care for chronically ill patients; he learned that practices crave high margin efficiency but find it elusive. After experiencing the breadth of chronic care solutions from that seat, he joined Jaan Health because the chance to expand an exciting business with a unique solution was too good to pass up. Eugene loves Jaan Health because Phamily-powered care enables private practices to provide better care for their patients and achieve financial sustainability. 

Before making the switch to healthcare, Eugene spent the bulk of his early career at Lazard Asset Management as a small midcap fund manager. At Lazard, he methodically built a fund that focused on long-term financial returns across a variety of sectors, and he proactively developed a thesis that focused on financial sustainability. His Lazard upbringing attests that, for Eugene, cash flow is the most consistent measure of value. This is at the core of what Jaan Health embodies, both internally and for our clients. Internally, Jaan Health’s extreme capital efficiency allows for incredible agility and fast growth when others flounder. For our clients, Phamily powers highly profitable service lines: lifelines in today’s reality of shrinking reimbursement and contracting margins.

Eugene has lived, studied, and worked around New York City for most of his life. He obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Columbia University. Uniquely, he also spent 2 years studying music at an adult conservatory in the city. He finds that teaching is a rewarding way to share his passion for music – he spent a year in Thailand serving as a music teacher at a vocational school for disabled students.
