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.
