Daniel Gilden, President & CEO

Daniel Gilden Dan Gilden founded JEN in 1985, well before “big data” became a cultural phenomenon. He adopted the Chinese term “jen” to reflect his vision for a company devoted to using data for the public good.

Over the years, Dan became a recognized expert in the use of Medicare, Medicaid, and other health data for diverse applications such as health policy and medical research, public policy planning, public health surveillance, epidemiology, and private sector litigation support. Under Dan’s direction, JEN assembled a team of system designers, programmers, and analysts who have gained a national reputation in data quality assessment, as well as assembling, managing and interpreting large health care Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial claims databases.

Since his untimely death in 2017 from brain cancer, JEN continues to devote itself to Dan’s goal of the creative use of health care data to improve public health.
