Who We Are

Our Story

Medata incorporated in 1975 as a company specializing in the field of medical cost containment for the workers’ compensation community. Founder, Constantine Callas, M.D., a physician and computer product visionary, developed software that automated medical bill review and made possible a product that remains at the heart of cost containment strategies today.

After more than 40 years as the leader in the industry, Medata remains a family-owned business under the direction and ownership of Dr. Callas’ daughter, Elizabeth C. King, and her husband, Cy King. With the strong leadership of the executive management team, Medata continues to represent the principles the company was founded on by delivering innovative products and building strong relationships with our employees, clients and partners.

Medata prides itself on its experience and leadership in the workers’ compensation and auto liability industries and is dedicated to offering solutions to meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s demands.

Executive Leadership

Executive Leadership

"When my husband, Cy, and I took over Medata in 2007, our mission was to revitalize the business my father started over 40 years ago. The company meant so much to me and my family and we were committed to renewing our place as the leader in medical bill review. To do that, we needed a lot of smart, hard-working people to join us in this endeavor. We formed our executive management team and set out to hire the best the industry had to offer. That was ten years ago. We now have over 200 team members working together each day to provide our clients with world-class service. We are proud of the relationships we have built and the reputation we have earned."
