Management Team Profiles
Jeremy Nobel, MD, MPH
Chairman and Founder
Dr. Nobel designs health care management and delivery systems that focus on cost and quality concerns. Working with employers, government, and other purchasers, as well as health plans and providers, he develops and evaluates computer based information technology applications that coordinate critical aspects of healthcare delivery, support optimal practice patterns, and improve patient satisfaction.
His contributions to this field span twenty years, and include providing health policy insight to the landmark Institute of Medicine of 1991 study addressing the automated patient record, which helped launch the Electronic Health Record (EHR) movement.
Dr. Nobel’s work specifically encompasses the use of technologies to better coordinate information flow between patients, providers, payers and purchasers, including electronic health records, personal health records, interactive web-sites, remote physiologic monitoring, hand-held devices,“smart” registries, and related software applications. His recent activities have involved integration of emerging technology deployment, with personalized health insurance benefit design, to encourage user engagement and behavior change on the part of healthcare consumers, as well as innovative provider reimbursement models to encourage physician participation. In addition to working with payers and purchasers of care, much of his effort is focused on care delivery at the community level and in particular, the health care safety net; including homes and workplaces, community clinics, public health departments, the VA, and public hospitals.
He has worked in consultation to several major corporations and foundations in the design and evaluation of effective health care management programs including Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, J&J, Mercer, HBOC, Chrysler, GM, Safeway, Sanofi-Aventis, Pfizer, GSK, Verizon, Hannaford Bros., CAREMARK, IBM, Medtronic, McKesson, Blue Shield of CA Foundation and the California Endowment. He is on the adjunct faculty of the Harvard School of Public Health where he teaches and does research on the health policy and management issues related to improving care delivery processes through better information management. He is also on the Board of Directors of DMAA.
