Karen Wolk Feinstein Gives Morning Keynote at Purchaser Business Group on Health Summit

On September 15, Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, president and CEO of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation and Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative, gave a keynote address to the Purchaser Business Group on Health, a nonprofit representing one of the nation's most influential coalitions of private and public healthcare purchasers, during the second day of their Primary Care Payment Reform Implementation Summit in Chicago. Attendees included high-level representatives from dozens of prominent employers including Boeing, Chevron, eBay, Intel, Microsoft, and Walmart, and speakers during the two-day summit consistently conveyed a sense of urgency and the need to join forces to make systemic improvements to the healthcare system.

Dr. Feinstein's presentation focused on the role businesses and payers can play in creating an improved health system of the future that emphasizes new models of care in the community and is safer for all. In addition to recommending models that better leverage community health workers, community paramedics, community safety technology, mobile units, and integrated care, Dr. Feinstein emphasized the need for a National Patient Safety Board to ensure safety is improved and opportunities for the business community to bargain for safety as rigorously as reduced premiums.
