Dr. Steven Strongwater
President and CEO, Atrius Health
New England’s largest not-for-profit independent medical group in 2019 reported a $38.7 million operating surplus. Strongwater is a firm believer in risk-based payments—about 75% of Atrius’ revenue came from full-risk contracts in 2018. During the coronavirus pandemic, he’s been vocal in advocating for federal relief funding for primary-care practices and for breaking away from the fee-for-service model.
