Nationally known for her work in the field of accountable care and patient engagement, Dr. Katherine Schneider's mission is to deliver better health, better care, at a sustainable cost in the communities that we work in, live in, and serve. She believes passionately that the time has finally come for the business model of healthcare to align with care models that further this mission.

Previously, Dr. Schneider was Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Medecision, population health and care management technology for providers and health plans. She also served as the senior vice president for Health Engagement at AtlantiCare, where she led the system's strategic transformational work toward accountable care and engaging individuals in their own health. In her previous position at Middlesex Health System, she spearheaded projects embedding chronic disease management in the delivery system and value-based payment models, including Medicare’s Physician Group Practice demonstration project. She has also led several award-winning initiatives in community health improvement.

Dr. Schneider is a former member of the National Advisory Council to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the federal agency charged with improving the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of healthcare for all Americans.
