When a leading health insurer entered a joint venture with one of the largest non-profit health systems in the United States to create a new health plan, no one anticipated the issues it would face soon after launching—from lagging KPIs to leadership team challenges and finally the abrupt departure of a key leader.
Stakeholders at both the health insurer and non-profit health system knew they needed a stopgap resource. In need of rapid assistance finding this interim leader, they reached out to Business Talent Group for help.
BTG delivered a healthcare executive with experience directly managing strategy, clinical, and business objectives for numerous healthcare organizations to serve as interim CEO for the joint venture. In previous executive roles, the talent had led organizations and joint ventures in creating clinically integrated networks to provide progressive population health management services and manage value-based contracts across disparate populations.
In his role as interim CEO for this new joint venture, the talent provided oversight of the leadership team, ensured alignment with the owner organizations’ vision and values, and collaborated with leadership across both organizations. Additionally, the talent was responsible for developing company strategy to address both short- and long-term market potential and business opportunities, communicating the company’s market vision and strategy both within the organization and among partners, and driving distribution strategies, financial management, contractual relationships, and growth within current and targeted geographies—among other priorities.
