“I’m excited by the opportunity to grow Constellation and transform it through bold innovation to provide new services and capabilities to our customers.”

With more than 25 years of experience in strategy, innovation, digital disruption and emerging technologies, Carey Smith oversees the information technology, analytics and security organizations at Constellation. He is committed to leveraging technology to achieve significant business transformation outcomes, operational efficiency, revenue and market share growth to meet Constellation’s goals—as well as intrigued by the intersection of technology with customer engagement and brand loyalty.

Experienced in delivering innovative technology products that disrupt markets, Carey came to Constellation in 2017 from Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota, where he delivered solutions that leveraged artificial intelligence, the internet of things (IoT) and voice-enabled cognitive capabilities. In fact, Carey is an active evangelist for emerging technologies, speaking both locally and nationally on digital innovation.


As the technology leader for Constellation’s innovation team and a member of Constellation’s Leadership Council, Carey ensures that technology solutions continually strengthen the stability of the company, provide a positive customer experience, and—most importantly—enable physicians and other clinicians to maximize their care for their patients and for themselves.

In his downtime, Carey enjoys being involved with his children’s youth sports activities.
