Our Take Five interviews share insight from health care leaders making a difference in the state and the nation. Take Five is one of the most popular features of our newsletter and explores topics critical to our mission to improve the safety, quality, and affordability of health care for everyone.
Recently we’ve run what we are calling Legacy Take Five interviews with a cross section of our longstanding members. Our first Legacy Take Five interview featured Dr. Alfred Tallia of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a national leader in medical education and primary care. Today we’re sharing our interview with Kevin Conlin, President & CEO of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the state’s largest health insurer.
Kevin Conlin’s interview focuses on the value of the company’s long-time membership in the Quality Institute and our ability to bring together people from all corners of health care — a critical element to the on-going transformation of how we deliver and pay for care. He makes the point that no single player in health care — not insurers, not providers, not government — can do it alone. We need the perspective of all our members.
We enjoy engaging with you and connecting you with each other. It’s those connections that are essential to achieving our mission. Enjoy reading the interview with Kevin and learn how Horizon supports its members beyond the traditional role of the health insurer.
