50 Most Influential Clinical Executives
Dr. Elissa Charbonneau
Chief medical officer,
Among other things, Charbonneau orchestrated a program at the post-acute provider to increase alternative pain management interventions. The result: a 5% drop in patients going home with an opioid prescription and a decrease from 50 to 30 opioid pills for those getting a prescription. She oversaw a predictive analytics initiative that helped identify high-risk patients and spread best practices managing those patients in order to avoid transfer to an acute-care setting.
