Quantum Health, the leader in care coordination and consumer navigation, announced today that it has named Jan Berger, M.D., M.J., as chief clinical strategist. Dr. Berger will serve as the senior consulting liaison between the company's client partners and clinical leadership and will set the direction and framework for clinical care coordination at Quantum Health. Dr. Berger will also be an asset in the expansion of the company's Personalized Solution Enabler, the first product in the health benefits marketplace to provide customized guided solutions for every health plan member's individual healthcare needs.
"Jan is a true healthcare innovator, whose keen insights, strong clinical expertise and knowledge of the evolving healthcare industry will be instrumental to our continued growth," said Kara Trott, founder and chief executive officer of Quantum Health. "Her passion for our mission is palpable. We will look to her to further enhance our exceptional member experience through the Personalized Solution Enabler, ensuring that our members are taking full advantage of their healthcare plans and employers are realizing the expected savings, improved employee satisfaction and improved outcomes."
Dr. Berger brings over 30 years of clinical and business experience, including healthcare administration, health plan management and leading operations for two population health companies. She served as Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer for CVS Caremark, where she led the company's Medicare Part D development and was clinical lead for M&A and the integration of acquired organizations. She is a published author, professor at Northwestern University's School of Medicine and School of Communication, and has served as editor-in-chief for the American Journal of Pharmacy Benefits as well as on the editorial boards of a number of other healthcare journals.
"Quantum Health is the leader in an important and growing segment of the healthcare industry," said Dr. Berger. "Their groundbreaking consumer-focused approach, industry-leading levels of engagement and ability to reduce costs and improve outcomes is what self-insured employers should be considering in order to maximize the value of their benefits plans, keep employees healthy and keep their costs in line. It is an exciting time to be at Quantum Health, and I'm looking forward to contributing to the continued success of the company."
Quantum Health was the first to define and use consumer behavior process mapping in healthcare by tracking 3,200 patients and 290 providers for two years. From this research, the company built a best-in-class model for care coordination and consumer navigation based on how people experience their healthcare journey, what they need and how best to connect with them.
