Eric Hart, M.D. co-founded Healthstat in 2001 to bring healthcare and preventive medicine into the workplace. Dr. Hart has always believed that comprehensive, compassionate, patient-centered care is foundational to total population health management. He co-founded Healthstat to provide patients with affordable, convenient, personal access to quality healthcare that focuses on prevention and wellness rather than disease and illness. As a physician specialized in family medicine and occupational health, Eric developed the understanding that motivating people to adopt healthier behaviors is the key to mitigating escalating costs. Over his 30 years in medicine, he has seen that innovation in medicine not only allows us to use data and analytics to design care but also must supplement our continuous effort to improve and cultivate the human side of medicine. As a primary care physician, he believes the art of medicine works hand-in-glove with the science of medicine.
As Healthstat’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hart uses his expertise to guide our clinicians in effective health management strategies for the employee populations they serve. He has founded several other innovative health-related business entities including a private practice (Hart Family Practice), Hart Industrial Clinic, Unifour Urgent Care, and Hart Wellness and Industrial Health of NC. His range of experience as a Family Practice Physician has allowed him to develop a nuanced understanding of the quality of life and cost impact of early identification and prevention of chronic diseases.
Dr. Hart is Board Certified in Family Medicine. He completed both his undergraduate and medical school education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating both with honors. He completed his Family Medicine Residency at University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics (Columbia, MO), where he was Chief Resident in his final year of residency. Dr. Hart has conducted primary care-oriented research focused on the effects of diabetes and hypoglycemic conditions. He is involved in a range of civic activities within his community and serves on several boards of directors. He is also a tutor with the City of Hickory Schools, a coach for AAU Basketball, and a member of Ducks Unlimited.

"I believe that Healthstat offers a total population health management solution that engages all of our patients—treating those with acute illness, managing those with chronic disease, and coaching the rest to remain or become healthy. As a family physician in private practice, I spent several years getting really good at the wrong job. I was effective at treating chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. But since founding Healthstat, I have learned that the real solution is treating patients before they become ill, helping them make the difficult lifestyle changes needed so that they never develop chronic disease."
