The former CEO of Cleveland Clinic joins CareCentrix Strategic Advisory Board
CareCentrix, the top provider of home-based and post-acute care solutions, continues to extend its leadership with the addition of Delos “Toby” Cosgrove, MD, former Cleveland Clinic chief executive officer and current Google Executive Advisor to its Strategic Advisory Board.
“Solving the last mile challenge for health plans and providers is the single greatest opportunity to reduce costs and improve outcomes in US health care,” said John Driscoll, CEO of CareCentrix, “We are taking bold steps to deliver more care in the lowest cost, most comforting setting: a patient’s own home through the application of care models, data science and personalized, heart-centered care.” Driscoll added, “Dr. Cosgrove has built his career as an innovator in clinical excellence, business model redesign and returning the patient to the center of care. We’re honored to welcome his leadership and support.”
Dr. Cosgrove is an expert in innovative healthcare delivery and an evangelist of the Quadruple Aim that embraces the critical role of patient and provider satisfaction to improve outcomes and reduce cost. As former president and chief executive officer of the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Cosgrove presided over the system’s multibillion-dollar healthcare and global leadership in clinical excellence, patient experience and outcomes, innovation, advanced care models and cost-efficiency.
“To reform health care the right way we need to embrace new care models and harness the power of data to deliver the care that patients want and families deserve,” said Dr. Cosgrove. “CareCentrix’s focus on home-based and post-acute care is critically important to healthcare’s transformation over the next decade to drive quality and to bend the cost curve, while delivering the best patient and provider satisfaction.”
