At this event, hear from Dr. Patrick Conway, president and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Conway most recently served as deputy administrator for innovation and quality at the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In this role, he also held the position of director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). As the most senior non-political leader at CMS, he worked in both Republican and Democratic administrations and is considered one of the driving forces behind the national movement to value-based care, with health care payments tied to quality and innovation.
At Blue Cross NC, Conway is continuing that commitment to delivering the best health outcomes and best service experience at the lowest cost for customers. The company is a leader in improving North Carolina’s health care system, making health care more affordable, and working with doctors, hospitals, and others to improve quality and value. Blue Cross NC strives to be a model health plan and health solutions company.
Conway is a practicing pediatric hospitalist and was selected as a master of hospital medicine from the Society of Hospital Medicine. Before joining CMS, he oversaw clinical operations, quality improvement, and research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, with a focus on improving patient outcomes across the entire multi-billion dollar health system. He completed his pediatrics residency at Harvard Medical School’s Children’s Hospital Boston, graduated with high honors from Baylor College of Medicine, and graduated summa cum laude from Texas A&M University.
