Gov. Baker brings a unique and deep understanding of the challenges facing payers, providers, and industry as health care undergoes its transformation.

Healthegy, creator of conferences and content that accelerate innovation in the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce that Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker will participate in a keynote interview at its Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit in Boston.

Gov. Baker bolsters an agenda already packed with leaders from the healthcare industry – innovators, investors, and providers.

“Gov. Baker brings a unique and deep understanding of the challenges facing payers, providers, and industry as healthcare undergoes its transformation,” said Craig Simak, CEO of Healthegy. “We’re honored to host the Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit in Boston every year and we’re excited that Gov. Baker has agreed to be a part of this important event.”

Gov. Baker caps off an already impressive lineup of healthcare leaders that includes:

  • David Blumenthal, MD, MPP, President & CEO – The Commonwealth Fund
  • Jonathan Gruber, Ford Professor of Economics – MIT Department of Economics
  • Gary Gottlieb, MD, MBA, Chief Executive Officer – Partners in Health
  • Charles Koontz, President & CEO, GE Healthcare IT and Chief Digital Officer – GE Healthcare

Two decades ago, Gov. Baker served as the state’s undersecretary of health and human services and later as secretary of administration and finance for both Govs. Weld and Cellucci. Over that span he reshaped the state’s Medicaid program while managing the state’s oversight of the creation of integrated provider networks like Partners Healthcare and CareGroup in Massachusetts.

Gov. Baker left government work first to serve as CEO of Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates and later Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. During his time as Chief Executive Officer, he turned a company on the brink of bankruptcy into the nation’s highest ranked healthcare provider for six straight years.

Gov. Baker will be interviewed by Todd Cozzens, managing partner of Leerink Transformational Partners, a Boston-based investor in healthcare start-ups.
