Businesses are prone to a number of issues like fluctuations which are normally experienced in the healthcare industry. From time immemorial, this issue has been affecting the leaders involved in the healthcare industry. Maggie Gill, the current CEO of Memorial Health has encountered a number of these challenges and understands her responsibility during such adverse times having been in the industry for nearly two decades. Gill survived that long in the turbulent industry by ensuring that at all times her clients received the best of care and high quality services.
EON Health Partnership
Forging innovative partnerships has been a strong point that Maggie has used in the past in order to offer her clients the best services in healthcare. Memorial Health has in the recent past partnered with the Eon Health. The partnership will avail a fresh no-premium Medicare Advantage plan to be accompanied with affordable prescription co-payments. This plan will be enjoyed by clients who usually get Medicare in South Carolina and Georgia counties starting 2017. It is widely expected that the new plan will avail some services that are not usually given in such no-premium plans before like free transportation, dental and hearing. Gill explained that Memorial Health considered the focus that Eon Health has on the issue of preventive care. Maggie Gill hopes their focus on a healthy lifestyle will assist in making the plan a success.
On her view on Changes afflicting Health Care Industry
While addressing the board of Memorial Health on the changes that are been experienced by players in the industry, Maggie disclosed that it would bring about revenue loss. Already Memorial Health has seen its revenue dwindle recently. She informed the company about some ‘Pathways to Excellence’ program she took in July to help the company get $20 million every year. The plan has already seen nearly $12.6M in savings including $7.6 million in Premier Inc.
