“A Foot in Two Canoes"

Tools for simultaneously managing a fee for service practice and a fee for value practice


 Presented by: J. Edward McEachern, M.D.

Dr. McEachern is the physician Executive Director of the Saint Alphonsus Health Alliance, a full-service Clinically Integrated Network based in Boise, Idaho.   


A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. McEachern earned an undergraduate degree in biology at Emory University.  As a Robert T. (Bobby) Jones Scholar at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland he earned a co-terminal masters degree in biological systems theory and statistics.  He went to Case Western Reserve University for Medical School, a Pathology residency at the University of California in San Francisco, a second residency in General Internal Medicine and Fellowship in Health Services Research at the Cleveland Clinic.  Practiced medicine in Georgia, Ohio, and Idaho.


His pioneering approaches to improving the service delivery and outcomes of clinical services are recognized across the United States and in other countries.  As the director of Health Services Research and as an operator of hospitals, he continues to innovate through research that forges partnerships "across the continuum" of care to apply unorthodox but highly effective approaches to the design of health services and systems that provide superior value in terms of costs, outcomes, and satisfaction.  His experience in operations, research, and consulting give him the opportunity to work with physicians, other clinicians, and managers in a variety of hospital and healthcare settings.  In particular, he has successfully demonstrated the ability to engage collaborative multi-disciplinary teams in improving the quality of direct patient care.
