50 Most Influential Clinical Executives - 2019
Dr. Jaewon Ryu
Interim president and CEO, Geisinger Health
Ryu became interim president and CEO of the Pennsylvania-based system in November 2018. Since that time, he’s zeroed in on expanding community care programs and a patient-first approach to care. He led a redesign of the health system’s primary-care operations by creating an environment where clinicians are freed up to spend more time with patients. As a result, the system is working to drive down total cost of care and continue to improve quality. He’s also pushing forward with the use of artificial intelligence to improve operations and care delivery.
