On this episode I talked to John Fryer, Chief Revenue Officer Lumeris. John discusses his journey in healthcare, starting with his entry into the finance world before being influenced by innovator Neil Patterson to focus on healthcare and ended up joining and cutting his teeth at Cerner Corporation with health systems and technology, and the emergence of value-based care.

Episode NOW on Demand

We discuss the challenge of aligning entrenched stakeholders for value-based care and the need for regulatory and policy changes. We are both fans of finding new influencers to bring about the change we know we need and view large employers as possibly bringing about disruption and change within the healthcare industry.

Lobbying and the Value-Based Care Puzzle

We dive into the persistent issue of limited adoption of value-based care despite its potential benefits, much of it attributable to the powerful stakeholders and lobbying groups, hindering the widespread adoption of the model. As part of the changes, we talk about the role of AI in addressing these issues, and while acknowledging that AI in healthcare is not a new concept it does bring some renewed potential opportunities for change, especially in improving efficiencies.

Listen in to hear our discussion on burnout and disillusionment among clinicians due to administrative pressures offers hope for the future as we share a sense of optimism about the potential for positive change in healthcare, driven by passionate individuals who are committed to innovating and solving the industry’s challenges.
