Harvard Pilgrim CEO Eric Schultz speaks with the Health Business Blog (Part 1 of 4)

Recently I sat down with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC) CEO, Eric Schultz for a wide-ranging discussion on the health care business. In this first of four segments I ask Eric to share his thoughts on the role of health plans in influencing cost and quality, what HPHC brings to Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and whether there’s any difference between the current shift toward global payments and what we witnessed in the 1990s.

HPHC has been named the top health plan in the US seven years in a row by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), so a lot of people in the industry are keeping a close watch on what Eric and his team are doing.
