50 Most Influential Clinical Executives
DR. Richard Migliori
Executive VP of medical affairs and chief medical officer,
Dr. Richard Migliori's playbook for changing health insurance comes down to how well medical data can be analyzed and how well patients can use that data. The top medical executive for UnitedHealth Group routinely sings the praises of technology in today's healthcare system, believing mobile apps and other means can help patients embrace preventive treatments. That would theoretically lower the cost of care, an issue that has grabbed the attention of nearly every lawmaker, economist and employer. "By taking an aggressive stance on prevention, we could mitigate a lot of the healthcare expenditure and adverse health consequences," he said at an industry conference in 2014. Migliori, 59, has held his current roles since 2013. Previously he was UnitedHealth's executive vice president of health services.
