We are excited to announced the addition of two nationally recognized thought leaders, Dr. Dee Edington and Dr. Brenda Motheral, to their Population Health Advisory Board.
Edington is the founder and chairman of Edington Associates, LLC and founder of the University of Michigan Health Management Research Center. Throughout his 40 year career, he has focused on the relationships between healthy lifestyles, vitality and quality of life as they benefit both individuals and organizations. Much of his most recent research and study has been focused on how individual health management, worksite wellness activities and programs within organizations impact health care cost containment, productivity and human resource development. He is most recognized for his book, Zero Trends: Health as a Serious Economic Strategy.
Motheral is a 20-year veteran of the pharmacy benefit management industry and is the co-founder and chief executive officer of Archimedes, a specialty drug management company that addresses the unprecedented increases in specialty spend through business intelligence, consultation and technology-based solutions. Throughout her career she has demonstrated a relentless pursuit of healthcare innovation driven by data analytics and evidence-based medicine. Motheral has published more than 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts, received several national research awards and authored numerous seminal industry reports.
