Earlier this month, Innovaccer’s Xccelerate conference brought together new thinking, valuable insights, critical conversations, and a shared vision on how patient data—unified and universally shared across consumer, care, and business settings—will be the biggest driver for accelerating the innovation and digital transformation that fundamentally improves healthcare.

Dr. Jack Cochran was one of two visionary keynote speakers to kick off the conference and take the stage at Xccelerate 2022.* The author of the acclaimed book Healer, Leader, Partner, Dr. Cochran is renowned for his efforts to help physicians become effective leaders for transforming healthcare so it can consistently deliver what patients want, need, and deserve.

Dr. Jack Cochran

While serving as CEO for the Permanente Federation, he led clinical quality and engagement, and oversaw more than 20,000 physicians caring for over 10 million patients. Under his leadership, Kaiser Permanente completed the largest civilian deployment of a clinical information system to date, and was recognized as a national leader in clinical quality by Medicare’s Star program, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and other organizations.

One of Modern Healthcare’s “50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders,” Dr. Cochran connected with us during Xccelerate 2022 to talk about what he sees as today’s top challenges in healthcare, and the role of physicians in driving industry-wide transformation—including why doctors must develop the leadership and partnering skills essential to driving transformation, in addition to their traditional roles as healers, confidants, and caregivers.

* We know you’re wondering who the other keynote speaker was. It was Billy Beane, executive VP of the Oakland A’s, and subject of the book Moneyball.
