Scott Wallace has been appointed a Batten Fellow by the Batten Institute at the University of Virginias Darden School of Business.
The 46-year-old former chief executive officer of the National Alliance for Health Information Technology will spend his fellowship collaborating with his faculty host, Elizabeth Teisberg, to accelerate value-based healthcare reforms among providers, health plans, employers and supply-chain companies.
The healthcare systems of the United States, Europe and elsewhere must be redesigned to improve care and outcomes. We believe that shifting the focus to creating health value can provide a powerful framework for reform, Wallace said in a written statement. With the support of the Batten Institute, we will be able to spend the year elaborating on and substantiating some key principles for improving health and reorienting care around value.
The Batten Fellows Program brings together business and education leaders and scholars interested in business innovation to implement projects related to the institutes mission.
We are delighted to add Scott to our list of illustrious fellows, said Michael Lenox, executive director of the Batten Institute and an associate dean at Darden. His collaboration with professor Teisberg is timely and critical. We expect that they will develop powerful new ideas to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare delivery.
