The Chief Clinical Officer (CCO) reports to the Chief Medical Officer. The CCO will be a valued member of our executive leadership team and will be interfacing with our President and other C-suite leaders regularly. As a foundational and values-centered senior leader, the CCO will be a critical force to shape and deliver on our mission.
The CCO will facilitate the delivery of high-quality, coordinated and efficient care across all business units with intent to achieve the quintuple aim. Specialty clinical leaders will report to the Chief Clinical Officer, with responsibility for specialty physician review strategy and policies designed to increase collaboration with physicians while minimizing abrasion. Core work can be divided into three domains: clinical integration and standardization, innovation in approaches to specialty care affordability, and advancement in patient impact and health equity In partnership with our CMO, the CCO will also represent Evolent externally with clients and prospects delivering our clinical point of view.
Clinical integration and standardization: Evolent successfully led three acquisitions in the last two years, with the intent to unlock more value for payers, improve experiences for providers, and enable better outcomes for patients, including a reduction in the financial burdens of health care. This has led to an expanded clinical workforce across multiple specialties (oncology, cardiology, radiology, physical medicine, etc.) with different platforms and approaches to clinical review as part of utilization management. The CCO will partner with our Chief Medical Officer and leadership to be a driving force to find best practices across the company, uncover synergies and efficiencies, and lead change management, with the ultimate goal of a high-performing, high-reliability, patient-and provider-centric, and joyful clinical organization. The CCO will be empowered to build their team to optimize the clinical organizational structure, by identifying and coaching internal talent as well as filling gaps where needed. The CCO will incorporate physician and health care workforce wellness in all decisions.
Innovation in specialty value-based care: The CCO will work to enhance existing clinical programs or support new ones in response to changes in the health care landscape, evolving real-world data, new drugs and indications, and regulatory shifts. The CCO will continue to refine the use of utilization management while also aggressively pursuing complementary levers. Examples of currently deployed clinical programs include site-of-care shifts, practice-facing alternative payment models and sub-capitation, learning collaboratives between Evolent and practice pharmacists, and advance care planning for patients with serious illness. The CCO will remain connected to up-to-date clinical trends, tap into internal and external subject matter experts, and continuously explore organic and inorganic growth to address total cost of care in the specialty space. The COO will help push the envelope on intersection of primary/specialty care by supporting the work we do with our primary care providers.
Patient impact and quality initiatives: The CCO will use the robust internal data available to research and publish on the impact of Evolent services on patient care, with an eye towards sub-group analysis, gap closure and health equity. Building upon the existing comprehensive health equity strategy, the CCO will also thoughtfully build new community partnerships in areas where there is an Evolent footprint to address upstream social drivers of health. The CCO should lead the vision for Evolent in this space in partnership with the CMO and key leaders, by leveraging prior work done with an understanding where the company sits in the health care ecosystem.
