Dr. Sachin Jain’s Most Effective Leadership Strategies

Unleashing latent innovation comes down to commonsense. But not just any commonsense. Radical commonsense. So says Sachin Jain, MD, MBA, President & Chief Executive Officer of SCAN Group and Health Plan, who joins the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast to talk about virtual care, health equity, what consumers want, and SCAN’s work to address homelessness as a healthcare problem. In this show, Sachin and host Tom Robinson, a Health and Life Sciences partner at Oliver Wyman, talk about how leaders can align their management styles with those of the people they work with. Sachin advises healthcare leaders to make their organizations unnecessary by improving the health of the communities they serve. The future of healthcare, he says, is already here.

Eleanor Health CMO on Addressing Racism Among Marginalized Communities

Addressing racism is a marathon, not a sprint. Healthcare leaders must be willing to take the first step to initiate heavy conversations that drive progress. Says Dr. Nzinga Harrison, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Eleanor Health, there is a direct correlation between someone experiencing weathering (a "fight or flight" physiological reaction) to them possibly developing health problems like high blood pressure, obesity, cardiovascular illness, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and more down the road. To learn more about weathering, health equity, and more, Elizabeth Southerlan, Principal in Oliver Wyman's Health and Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Dr. Harrison to talk about the psychological burden of racism as an independent risk factor for health.

Strategies for Leading an Academic Health System

Steering an academic medical center through a global health crisis demands remarkable humility, a relentless commitment to partnership, and true collaboration. However, what it perhaps doesn’t demand is a one-size-fits-all, traditional healthcare background. On that note, when Alan Kaplan, MD, first began his role as Chief Executive Officer at UW Health in Wisconsin five years ago, this was his first foray into academic healthcare – his prior academic experience limited to his experience as a student attending school. Alan, who’d been a senior healthcare executive for 25 years, learned he was actually the only candidate for the job without an academic background and was chosen for his know-how as a physician leader who understood how to run a business. To share his journey, Alan’s here on our podcast in a conversation hosted by Oliver Wyman partner, Deirdre Baggot, PhD, RN, to discuss physician leadership, provider-sponsored health plans, the importance of having a living strategic plan, what defines an effective partnership strategy, and why diversity of perspective and background among C-suite healthcare leaders serves as a competitive advantage.
