Today I had the opportunity to participate with several national health plans demonstrating their innovations in health information technology and behavioral health at a Health Plan Innovations Event coordinated by America’s Health Insurance Plans. The event included remarks by Senator Pete Domenici from New Mexico.
Besides the company of my (great) boss, James Hereford, Executive Vice President of Strategic Services & Quality for Group Health Cooperative, and counterpart Mark Snyder, MD, Associate Medical Director of Information Technology, Mid-Atlantic Permanente Group, I got to touch base again with two great leaders from Kaiser Permanente, Anna-Lisa Silvestre, and Holly Potter, pictured here.
Anna-Lisa is the Vice President for Online Services for Kaiser Permanente, and Holly Potter is the Vice President, Public Relations, National Media and Stakeholder Management. Their leadership and promotion of patient-centered health care has helped Kaiser Permanente make a substantial impact in the deployment of patient personal health records nationally – 2 million members and counting.
