Jacob Reider, MD, FAAFP, CEO of the Alliance for Better Health, will
serve as special guest editor-in-chief of The American Journal of
Managed Care® health IT issue. Dr. Reider, former Deputy National
Coordinator and Chief Medical Officer at the Office of the National
Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), has published on
the use of technology to promote the Triple Aim, bringing better health
and better care at a lower cost to the U.S. populations.
Dr. Reider is a family physician who now leads an organization focused
on care transformation for Medicaid members and the uninsured in upstate
He previously was Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Allscripts, a
developer of electronic health record technology for practices and
hospitals. During the Obama administration, he served in the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services, including time as Deputy
National Coordinator and Chief Medical officer at ONC. Dr. Reider served
in several private sector positions before joining the Alliance for
Better Health in December 2016.
A graduate of Hampshire College, he received his medical degree from
Albany Medical College.
Dr. Reider offers that, “health IT is the foundation of care delivery
transformation. It is for this reason that the optimization of health IT
remains a bipartisan issue: nobody would argue that great health IT
won’t support the Triple Aim.”
“I’m honored to be participating in the crafting of this edition of AJMC®,
and I am especially interested in seeing submissions that focus on
interoperability, usability, safety, and innovations that support new
models of care,” Dr. Reider said.
