Our Featured Speaker: Brian Klepper, PhD
Dr. Klepper is a health care analyst, commentator and entrepreneur. He is CEO of the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH), representing 55 regional business health coalitions, about 4,500 employers and union health benefits purchasers and some 35 million people. NBCH is dedicated to leveraging purchaser’s collaborative strength to drive better health outcomes at lower cost.
Brian is also Principal and Chief Development Officer for WeCare TLC, LLC, a worksite primary care clinic and medical management firm based in Lake Mary, FL.
Much of Brian’s work has been focused on the mechanisms that underlie America’s health care cost crisis and how institutionalized clinical and business practices have distorted care and cost patterns, driving unnecessary cost. His perspective favors patients, whose medical care often exposes them to needless physical risk, and purchasers, whose health care costs are double those in other developed nations, creating a cascade of negative economic impacts.
Dr. Klepper is an in-demand speaker who has delivered more than 300 addresses, most of them keynotes, over the past decade. He is a columnist for the physician site Medscape, and a regular contributor to the Health Affairs Blog, the Doctor Weighs In, Kevin MD and other expert health care blogs. He is a reviewer for Health Affairs and The Journal of Ambulatory Care Management. Brian is an Advisor to the Lundberg Institute and the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative, which advocates for medical homes.
