About Chuck Hollowell
Chuck Hollowell brings a blended background in healthcare, law, and community service to his role as co-founder, Chief Operations Officer and General Counsel of Siftwell Analytics, a healthcare-focused company that uses the latest AI technology to improve data-driven decisions.

Earlier in his career, he spent 16 years in private practice with two national law firms, where he gained significant experience representing a wide variety of clients including hospitals and health systems, health plans, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living providers, and medical practices.
In private practice - first with Kilpatrick Townsend and later with Nelson Mullins – Chuck conducted extensive litigation on behalf of healthcare clients in state and federal court and administrative proceedings, including Medicaid appeals, certificate of need appeals, commercial disputes, various professional licensure matters, and defending medical staff peer review decisions.
Chuck served as President of the North Carolina Society of Healthcare Attorneys, as well as Chair of the Health Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association, where he led the development of an advanced care planning initiative to create key end-of-life resources, an issue about which he's long been passionate.

(2014); In re J.W. (2013); In re D.M. (2007); In re M.C. (2006); and In re T.G. (2005).
