What does it look like when value-based care theories, policies, practices, and innovative technologies are put into practice? What happens when we move beyond talking the talk to walking the walk of population health management at scale?

To explore those questions and more, we invited Dr. Drew Albano, the Chief Medical Officer for Population Health Management at Prisma Health, to join our panel. Prisma Health is a clinically integrated network with over 5,000 providers focused on improving health outcomes, access, and health equity across South Carolina. Prisma Health works with health insurers, partners, and vendors to align stakeholders’ efforts to deliver value-based care to nearly 1.5 million patients across 21 counties, covering nearly 50% of the state.

Joining Dr. Albano are regular podcast panelists Ann Greiner, president and CEO of the Primary Care Collaborative, a not-for-profit organization working to advance an effective and efficient health system built on a strong foundation of primary care; Forbes columnist Seth Joseph, managing director at Summit Health Advisors, a leading healthcare consultancy working primarily with digital health startups and investors; and your host, Innovaccer’s Sean Hogan.

Dr. Albano is a vocal advocate and hands-on leader in population health management, influencing and accelerating the future of healthcare not just in South Carolina but as a national voice. He’s bullish on how innovative healthcare technology and collaboration together can play a pivotal and positive role to help healthcare professionals  improve patient outcomes; enhance engagement; and efficiently address issues such as health equity, workforce burnout, labor shortages, and more.

In a wide ranging discussion, the panel explores a variety of salient topics, including but not limited to:

  • Inside the Prisma model: How they’re creating a better state of health in South Carolina
  • Contrasting the governance of a clinically integrated network (CIN) vs. an ACO

  • Direct-to-consumer startups and retailers entering healthcare: how to navigate innovation, convenience, care fragmentation, and new competitive models
  • Is preventative and primary care a right or a privilege?
