Lowering cost is one of the three main priorities of the Triple Aim. What are the best strategies for addressing cost in our community?
Lowering cost must be addressed at the patient, physician, insurer, and facility level simultaneously. Transparency is key among all the players to have informed parties helping patients making informed decisions. By making cost information transparent, easily digestible, and accessible, everyone can become an informed participant in lowering costs as part of the Triple Aim.
Why do you think a multi-stakeholder coalition like the KHC is needed in the community?
KHC is uniquely positioned as a neutral third party to connect providers, payers, employers, and others with vested interest in healthcare in Kentuckiana. Quite often we find ourselves on information overload so it is crucial to have an organization that is working to keep all parties moving together to achieve better outcomes.
How do you see the KHC evolving in the future?
I think KHC will continue to be trusted resource for all stakeholders to adapt in the changing landscape of healthcare delivery with performance based payment models and the integration of mental health and substance use resources into all areas of healthcare.
What are you passionate about?
My passion is in helping people in any way that I can. No surprise that I have spent my entire adult life working for non-profits!
What is your dream vacation spot?
Turks and Caicos Islands. Our family visited Grand Turk Island on a cruise last year and it was absolutely breathtaking!
