Breakfast with Healthcare Champions Series

Inclusion - A Corporate Business Imperative

Thursday, December 3, 2015
7:00 – 8:30 AM
Massachusetts Hospital Association Conference Center
5 New England Executive Park
Burlington, MA

Five years ago, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care embarked on a comprehensive initiative to build Inclusion into the fabric of its corporate culture. President and CEO Eric Schultz personally championed this effort and will speak about the strategy that he set in place to make Inclusion a Core Business Strategy. He will discuss the planning process that led to implementation of the initiative and the creation of six inclusion tracks that created the core of the company's program and has made inclusion a part of daily life at the Wellesley-based company. And, equally important, it's enhancing Harvard Pilgrim's bottom line!

Eric Schultz, President and CEO
Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare

Eric Schultz, a health care executive with a distinguished career as an innovator in promoting transparency around health care cost and quality, is the president and chief executive officer of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. He is currently leading the expansion and transformation of Harvard Pilgrim - one of the nation’s top ranked health plans - from a regional organization with a strong footprint in New England to a national, fully integrated and value-based health services company designed to engage consumers across the country in a new way.

During his 30-year career in health care, Eric has held leadership roles in both the clinical care and insurance/payor worlds. His experience ranges from leadership of a large primary care and behavioral health practice to oversight of an integrated health care system focused on bringing the greatest, sustained value to the consumers, providers and patients. Prior to joining Harvard Pilgrim in March of 2010, he served as president and chief executive officer of Fallon Community Health Plan. In the ten years he led Fallon, it emerged from significant financial losses and grew from a regional group model health plan to a statewide health benefits company.

Named among the 50 Most Influential Bostonians by the Boston Business Journal in 2013 and 2014 and a Leader in Diversity in 2014, Eric has been active in the community, recognizing that a healthy community is not only physically sound, but economically strong as well.

Eric is a past board chairman of American’s Health Plans and continues to serve on this board as well as the boards of the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center, the New England Council, the Massachusetts Association of Health Plans, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and the Massachusetts Business Roundtable. A Distinguished Eagle Scout, he also serves as executive vice president for the Boy Scouts Northeast Region.

Schultz holds an MBA in Health Care Leadership from Yale University’s School of Management and a BS in biology and a BA in economics from the University of Connecticut. In 2009, he received an honorary doctoral degree from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services.
