Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD on April 4, 2018

Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD on April 4, 2018

Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD Talking about Value-Based Healthcare: What It Looks Like, What it is, How to Achieve it.

Dr. Steele shared with the group how Geisinger developed its “Warranty” or “Money Back Guarantee”, and it’s effectiveness through Proven Care, systematic implementation of surgical procedures from one provider to another. He also spoke about xG Health Solutions that Geisinger developed to help other health systems develop more effective healthcare strategies.

With Dr. Steele’s role as Vice Chair of Health Transformation Alliance (HTA), Glenn talked about the efforts the 46 of the country’s largest employers working together to take population health management innovations out to markets where Geisinger has not expanded its provider component.

Sponsors, Key Bank (Melissa Whitmer) and Eide Bailly (Bruce Kirkpatrick) join Dr. and Mrs Steele (and Chris) for a photo of the speaker during the reception hour prior to the meeting.

We thank both Melissa and Bruce and their employers for their support of the Denver Medical Study Group this year. They are greatly appreciated!

Glenn and Chris listening intently to one of our attendees who is asking question about the HTA program and its similiarity to the recently publcised announcement of JP Morgan, Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway announcement of their intent to form their own health insurance plan for their employees.

Glenn Steele, Jr., MD, PhD

On April 4th at Children’s Hospital Conference Center, we’re going to meet and hear from the physician who originated the “Warranty” concept in healthcare and took it to the “next level” as told in the article below from The New York Times on May 17, 2007. “The group, Geisinger Health System, had overhauled its approach to surgery. And taking a cue from the makers of television sets, washing machines and consumer products, Geisinger essentially guarantees its workmanship, charging a flat fee that includes 90 days of follow-up treatment.”

You might have seen this article by Reed Abelson from 2007.

The Geisinger phrase of a “money back guarantee” was coined by the current CEO at Geisinger, David Feinberg. Read more in Becker’s Hospital Review:

This is a “can’t miss” and “cutting edge” opportunity all in one to hear Glenn Steele, Jr., MD, PhD, Chairman, xG Health Solutions, Vice Chair, Health Transformation Alliance and Past President & CEO, Geisinger Health System, 2001-2015 to share with us what has happened since February 2006, when Geisinger began its experiment focusing on elective heart bypass surgery,

“DaVita’s Strategy for Becoming a More Integrated Healthcare Enterprise Through Diversification and Delivery”

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DaVita Inc., and Chief Executive Officer, DaVita Medical Group

We all know that healthcare is constantly changing. Insurance carriers, hospitals and provider groups are all undergoing changes in the way they provide and pay for services. DaVita is changing along with the rest of the healthcare industry. Kent Thiry’s presentation will explore DaVita’s strategy for becoming a more integrated, and therefore more durable, health care enterprise by diversifying both products and delivery models. This discussion will include DaVita’s international expansion, the opportunities and challenges of emerging technologies and delivery models that are shaping health care services, and Mr. Thiry’s thoughts on leadership in a values-based organization.

“Leadership in Medicine: The Key to Improving Our System”

Denis A. Cortese, MD, Director, Healthcare Delivery and Policy Program, Arizona State University; Emeritus President and CEO, Mayo Clinic

We all know that healthcare is in deep trouble. And we know that time is running out. This discussion will focus on our current delivery “system” and the role of leadership in creating a new, more effective and efficient system. If providers want to retain their authority in healthcare delivery, they must collectively take responsibility and accountability for their quality and costs of care. Designing, developing strategies and tactics, and implementing a new system of healthcare is the role for leadership.

All attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Cortese’s book, Rescuing Healthcare: A Leadership Prescription to Make Healthcare What We All Want it to Be.

Presently, he is Associate Director of the Arizona State University Healthcare Delivery and Policy Program.
