How did you become an executive in the health care industry? Did you always have an interest in health care?
I started my career in public accounting and was exposed to many industries. I worked on the Eli Lilly account and was hooked on the work done in the healthcare segment. What a wonderful way to develop a career and help others at the same time!
What is one major challenge you see facing the health care industry today?
I think the biggest challenge in healthcare right now is finding a way to deliver high quality, low cost care for all Americans. There are many experiments going on with value-based care, population health, and integration of providers into hospitals and healthcare payers. We have yet to figure out the right mix.
What does true leadership mean to you?
True leadership means creating a compelling vision and then hiring/coaching/motivating the team to accomplish the vision. True leaders then: 1) trust that the team can get it done; 2) remove any barriers for the team; and 3) get out of the way.
