Ed Levine

Senior Partner

Edward Levine is a Senior Partner in McKinsey’s Silicon Valley office and a leader of their Healthcare Systems and Services practice. He has spent over 15 years working with the management teams of leading public and private-sector healthcare organizations, mostly focused on provider/health system strategy and cost and operations transformations. He is a leader in the firm’s knowledge development on the topic of payment innovation for providers and implications of reform on health systems and physicians/medical groups.  He also plays a central role in health system transformations focusing on clinical operations, lean efficiency improvement, and total cost management.  

Edward recently served over 10 freestanding Children’s Hospitals on issues of strategic/capital planning, local market growth strategy, academic affiliation, partnerships/transactions, and managed care strategy. He developed a private sector “accountable care organization” that unified the interests of a major health system, a large IPA medical group, and a regional Blues health plan, using a shared risk model amongst the 3 parties, all in the interest of better serving a large employer purchasing group representing State and local government health beneficiaries. And finally, he recently served several regional health plans on issues of provider (hospital and physician) incentives and structures to promote total cost of care mitigation.

Edward received his MD from the University of California, San Diego and his BS degree in biological sciences from Stanford University. He completed Internal Medicine residency and Infectious Disease fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco.  He also was an HHMI research fellow at the NIH in Bethesda during his medical school training. Edward recently published the article “Clinically integrated networks: Can they create value?” (McKinsey & Company, June 2016).
