New Clinical Advisory Committee Facilitates Solutions for Memphis Employers

Memphis Business Group on Health's new Clinical Advisory Committee serves as a vehicle for understanding the priorities and challenges of Memphis-area self-insured employers so Committee member organizations can deploy innovative programs, services and solutions to meet those needs and contribute to their own overall success.

Initial members include:

  • Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation: Henry Sullivant, MD
  • Gastro One: Richard Aycock, MD
  • Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare: Aruther Townsend, MD
  • UTHSC's University Clinical Health: Brad Canada, MD

Over time the Committee will grow to a maximum of 10 member organizations.

The Committee will work together as a team and on a one-on-one basis with MBGH to explore and create solutions for priorities such as:

  • New provider payment models
  • Moving from wellness to well-being
  • Population health management
  • Clinical quality metrics for use in regional and national performance measurement and public reporting initiatives in which MBGH participates.

According to Cristie Upshaw Travis, MBGH CEO, "At our August meeting our guest speaker, Scott Conard MD, reminded us all that disease is the enemy. With a focus on this point, this Committee is our place to engage directly with the clinical community to help MBGH and participating organizations create solutions that are win-win-win for employers, patients, and providers. We are committed to working together to defeat the common enemy of disease".
