I recently had a chance to interview Dr. Richard Merkin, President and CEO of Heritage Provider Network. Richard has spent the last 30 years implementing a successful business model to address the needs and challenges of affordable managed health care. In this interview, we discussed the role of prizes throughout history and the lessons Heritage has taken from it’s beginnings in rural areas to a system that now covers 700,000 lives. The conversation also dishes the details behind the $3M Heritage Health Prize and the impact Richard hopes it will have on the affordability of care across the system.
