    Top 10 up-and-coming industry leaders in managed care

     

    Eric Beck, DO, MPH, EMT-P, FACEP
    Chief Executive Officer, Evolution Health
    Dallas, Texas

    BeckBeckAt 36 years old, Beck’s career has spanned the care continuum, from moonlighting as a paramedic while putting himself through medical school, to serving as medical director for Chicago’s emergency medical services and the Chicago Fire Department, to his current role as leader of Evolution Health, which provides in-home care and care in alternative settings in 10 states, and offers telehealth services, virtual practices, and virtual medical command centers in 42 states. Major career accomplishments include leading the deployment of a technology-directed mobile integrated healthcare program for Envision, a provider of hospital physician services, and its subsidiaries, Evolution Health and American Medical Response (AMR), a provider of emergency and non-emergency ambulance transports. Beck practices clinically at the University of Chicago in the Mitchell Adult and Comer Pediatric Emergency Departments.

    MHE: Why did you choose your profession?

    Beck: Growing up I swam competitively and eventually became a lifeguard. This led to attending EMT school and later becoming a firefighter and paramedic. Medical directors encouraged me to continue my education, first through nursing coursework and then medical school. I have always been drawn to meaningful work through service to others. My public safety roots led me to healthcare, and more importantly to understand systems of care from the ground up. Interprofessional team-based care requires a more holistic appreciation of each team member and their potential contribution at both the patient and population levels. My experiences have helped me to understand the powerful impact of team-based care and continue to frame my work as an executive, clinical practitioner, and educator.

    MHE: What has been your biggest learning experience?

    Beck: Clinical integrity is paramount. The pursuit of value in healthcare requires discipline in measurement with feedback mechanisms to drive learning and improvement. What gets measured can be managed, and what gets managed can be improved upon. I have also learned that at the nexus of public safety, public health, healthcare, and managed care, lies population health—a true opportunity to align competencies across health systems, communities, and populations for the better. Measuring the right things for the right populations is where value-based care truly sits.

    MHE: What change would you like to see in healthcare in the next 10 years?

    Beck: Universal transparency in health and healthcare outcomes—including clinical, financial, and experiential areas. Although a lot of this data is available today, it is not readily accessible or easily understood by typical consumers and caregivers. Increasing transparency in cost, quality, and experience will continue to facilitate alignment between consumers, providers, and financiers of healthcare services with a shared goal of good health.

    MHE: If you could sit down to dinner with anyone involved in healthcare, who would it be?

    Beck: John Snow, who traced and tabulated fatalities during the cholera epidemic of 1854 in London to isolate the Broad Street water pump as the source of infection. As an aspiring epidemiology geek, I admire his ability to use measurement (mostly observational counting) to solve a contemporary health issue of his time.
