It’s time to take a pragmatic approach to value in healthcare. That’s what Ethan Berke, MD, MPH, chief medical officer of population health solutions and vice president of clinical innovation at Optum, thinks.
On the frontlines working with providers and large payers across the health system, Dr. Berke has continually challenged preconceived notions of what value looks like. He joined Optum
after serving as the medical director of clinical design and innovation at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System. At D-HHS he was also chief medical officer of ImagineCare, a 24/7 nurse-led, coordinated care model that leverages remote medical sensing and machine learning analytics.
Given his unique position of working with organizations to collaborate across the health system, Becker’s Hospital Review recently asked Dr. Berke to share his perspectives on best approaches for creating value in healthcare.
