Baptist Health names first chief health integration officer

Dr. Isaac J. Myers II to assume role

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 20, 2014) — Isaac J. Myers II, MD has been named the first Chief Health Integration Officer at Baptist Health Louisville.

Isaac J. Myers II

Dr. Myers joined Baptist Health in February as president of the new Baptist Health Medical Group, a position he will continue serve as he takes on the CHIO role. Since joining Baptist Health, Dr. Myers has been leading a critical project — consolidating all of its employed physician entities across the system — which is expected to be completed by January.

The CHIO will lead Baptist Health’s efforts to develop and implement population health strategies. In addition, he will oversee Bluegrass Family Health, Employer Solutions and Managed Care/Revenue Cycle.

The new position was created in part to help tackle the new concept of population health, moving the system toward a culture of “well care,” rather than “sick care.”

Dr. Myers previously served as president of Saint Francis Medical Group (Central Indiana Region) with Franciscan Saint Francis Health in Indianapolis, where he led the multispecialty medical group through rapid and constant healthcare reform, focusing on strategy development, leadership, and the development and integration of acute and ambulatory services and partnerships. Prior to Saint Francis Dr. Myers served for over 10 years collectively as senior executive for Indiana-based managed care organizations Advantage Health Solutions and Prudential Health Care.
