Congratulations to Norman C. Payson, M.D., the newest members of the Board of Directors of The CORE Institute. “Dr. Payson has had a thirty year career as Chief Executive Officer and/or Chairman of multiple healthcare organizations including publicly traded companies,” says the April 13, 2017 news release. “He was co-founder and CEO of Healthsource, a 3 million member health plan, the “turnaround CEO” of Oxford Health Plans’ $6 billion insurance business, Chairman of the nation’s largest occupational health care company (Concentra), and CEO of Apria Healthcare, the largest home healthcare provider in the country.”

“Dr. Norman Payson comes to us with an impressive and highly-regarded career in the healthcare industry, and we are thrilled to welcome him onto our Board of Directors,” said David Jacofsky, M.D., chairman and founder of The CORE Institute and Excellence Headquarters. “He is among the most well-respected minds in the business of insurance anywhere in the world, and is both a physician and a national name in business which provides him a unique perspective from both vantage points.”

Dr. Payson is a “graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received his medical degree from Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine. He has served as sponsor and mentor at the Biomedical Enterprise Program of the Health Sciences Technology Division of MIT and is a lecturer and mentor for students of Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine and Tuck School combined MD-MBA Program while also on the School of Medicine's Board of Overseers. He serves on the Boards of multiple for profit and charitable organizations including chairing the Board of Directors of the City of Hope, a not-for-profit corporation which, with its affiliates, operates a tertiary cancer hospital and research center.”

Dr. Payson told OTW, “I'm excited about working with leading physicians on innovation in healthcare delivery. The CORE Institute and Excellence Headquarters are doing truly amazing things in the population health and value-based contracting space. It is thrilling to engage with a team that truly understands how to build clinical systems and IT [information technology] infrastructure around musculoskeletal care proven to create an environment of true reliability and decreased variation in care.”

“My first step is to understand current practices and collaborate in designing programs to further transform the musculoskeletal care delivery space to improve outcomes for patients and value for providers and payors.”
