Event Details:

The Stanford Club of Hong Kong is delighted to welcome Dr. Arnie Milstein, founder of Stanford Health Care's Clinical Excellence Research Center ("CERC") as our honorable speaker at this event.  CERC organizes research teams from multiple Stanford Schools to discover, design, and demonstrate new methods of healthcare delivery that substantially reduce annual per-capita health spending and population-wide disability in the near-term. Design and testing is led by teams of post-doctoral research fellows and faculty from multiple Stanford Schools with initial emphasis on Engineering, Social Sciences, and Medicine. The Center has formed two external networks to inform and support its research teams. One network consists of healthcare systems regarded as the most cost-effective in the U.S. and will help researchers to assure that their designs are informed by today’s highest-performing care models. The other network consists of health systems willing to allow the Center’s researchers to test their new care models and healthcare payers willing to incentivize providers participating in the tests.

Speaker Bio:
Dr. Milstein is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford and directs the Stanford Clinical Excellence Research Center. The Center is a collaboration of the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Business to design and demonstrate in multi-state locations new health care delivery models that safely lower per capita health care spending and improve patients' experience of their care.

Before joining Stanford's faculty, his career of applied research spanned private and public sector healthcare delivery and purchasing strategy. After launching a healthcare performance improvement firm subsequently acquired by Mercer and expanded globally, he co-founded two nationally influential public benefit initiatives, the Leapfrog Group in 1998 and the Consumer-Purchaser Disclosure Project. He also served on the faculty of UCSF's Health Policy Institute and was appointed to a six year term as a Congressional MedPAC Commissioner. Since its inception, he has been the Medical Director of the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH), which is now the largest employer-led regional healthcare improvement coalition in the U.S.

Citing his nationally distinguished innovation in health care policy and delivery methods, he was selected for the highest annual award of both the National Business Group on Health (NBGH) and of the American College of Medical Quality. Elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences, he chaired the planning committee of its series on best methods to lower per capita health care spending and improve clinical outcomes. He was educated at Harvard (BA–Economics), Tufts (MD) and UC Berkeley (MPH Healthcare Evaluation).
