Collaboration and payment on Rural Health Leaders Conference agenda

Healthcare is a volatile, uncertain, complex, and sometimes ambiguous endeavor, especially for those who care for vulnerable populations.

Join us at the Second Annual Rural Health Leaders Conference for a conversation with Dr. Don Bradley, MHS-CL, Consulting Professor, Duke University School of Medicine, and Executive Director, Practical Playbook. Dr. Bradley will discuss the importance of partnering with key community stakeholders in improving the health of individuals and populations, while at the same time demonstrating cost savings demanded by value-based payment arrangements. He will share his expertise and outline specific examples in building successful clinical-community partnerships.

Bradley retired from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) in 2014 after 26 years, where he served in variety of roles including Chief Medical Officer, Senior Vice President for Healthcare and Senior Medical Director Quality Improvement and Medical Policy. He also has experience and success in rural family practice, managed care contract negotiations and management, medical and reimbursement policy, quality improvement, care management and clinical informatics.

Bradley serves as Executive Director for The Practical Playbook, an exploration of the steps public health and primary care professionals can take to improve population health. His interests at Duke include development of population health competencies, curricula and tools; leadership development; prevention and management of obesity; and health policy, finance and transformation.
