Thought Leader, Care Redesign

Arnold Milstein, MD, MPH

Director, Clinical Excellence Research Center
Stanford University


Dr. Milstein is Professor of Medicine and the Director of the Clinical Excellence Research Center at Stanford University. The Center designs and demonstrates in multi-state locations scalable health care delivery innovations that provide better care with less health care spending. His research spans positive value outlier assessment, human-centered health care design, and in partnership with Stanford’s AI Lab the development of technology-based cognitive aids to boost the yield from health care spending.

Before joining Stanford’s faculty, he founded a national health care performance improvement firm that he expanded globally after its acquisition by Mercer. He subsequently co-founded three nationally influential public benefit initiatives, including the Leapfrog Group and the Pacific Business Group on Health. As a Congressional MedPAC Commissioner, he originated two legislative changes to align health care provider revenue with value to patients.

Dr. Milstein was elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences and co-chaired its analysis of opportunities to safely slow national health spending growth.
