Marc Berg


Marc has more than 20 years of worldwide experience in helping healthcare organizations and governments improve the value of care, with the goal of achieving higher quality with lower costs. He is a recognized innovative leader in value-based contracting, outcomes measurement, and payment reform.

—executing a state’s incentive program for delivery-system reform that supported the creation, organization, governance, performance, and IT strategy of dozens of provider systems jointly serving several million Medicaid members

—developing and applying a European government ministry’s system of bundled payments for chronic care

—creating, executing, and evaluating care-contracting strategies for multiple health plans

—generating and implementing health-quality and patient-safety programs in multiple health systems, with a focus on the operating room, intensive care unit, emergency room, frail and elderly population, admission unit, discharge-management practice, and system-wide care pathways

Marc received his Masters of Health Sciences, his MD, and his PhD from Maastricht University, the Netherlands. He was Professor of Health Policy and Management at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
