COLUMBIA, Md., April 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Health Solutions, a leading healthcare management and redesign company powered by Geisinger Health System's proven methods, is pleased to announce the launch of its Advisory Board. Comprising leaders from some of the country's most-respected public and private national and regional health systems, payer organizations, and academic institutions, the board will provide input to xG Health leadership on issues of importance to the industry, including emerging policy, payment and technical trends.
Says xG Health CEO Earl P. Steinberg, MD, MPP, "We are honored that so many highly accomplished healthcare leaders have joined our advisory board. Some are clients of xG Health Solutions, while others are not. This diversity of membership means that we will have an unbiased source of information on the concerns and needs of healthcare organizations from coast to coast, as well as direct feedback on how our solutions are helping providers and payers meet the challenges of today's healthcare marketplace."
In a kickoff event held February 22, 2016, the 10-member advisory board met with Dr. Steinberg and co-chairs Glenn Steele, MD, PhD, chairman of xG Health, and David Wennberg, MD, MPH, head of Data Science and Analytics at Portland, Maine-based Quartet Health. Says Steele, "The advisory board represents a cross-section of healthcare leadership, including chief executive officers, chief medical officers, chief quality officers, policy directors and researchers, all of whom are dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare and reducing the total cost of care. Their insights will be invaluable in helping xG Health identify issues and test solutions that respond to the demands of value-based reimbursement."
During the meeting, a number of key issues were discussed, including the coordinated management of medical and behavioral health issues, data analytics, shared patient-clinician decision support, practice transformation, management of acute conditions and chronic disease, and employer-sponsored health care.
Adds Wennberg, "Solution providers such as xG Health understand the needs of providers and payers; end users will benefit greatly from the fact that performance-improvement options have been vetted by those likely to benefit most from xG Health's products and services."
