Atlas Research has published its 2019 annual report, “Mission. Insight. Impact.,”which has analyzed the company’s work with federal government agencies to address healthcare challenges, innovation, and initiatives, Atlas reported on Monday.
“As 2019 drew to a close, the COVID-19 pandemic was not yet in view and we could not perceive the unprecedented ways in which it would challenge the country,” said Atlas Research co-founder and CEO Ryung Suh.
Dr. Kenneth Kizer, Atlas chief health care transformation officer and senior executive vice president led the study. Kizer joined Atlas in 2019, bringing with him an international reputation as a health system transformer and innovator. His work is featured on the open pages of the report.
Kizer is widely known for his expertise and accomplishments in health system transformation, patient safety and quality improvement, population health management and Veterans health issues. Kizer’s broad experience includes engineering the internationally acclaimed transformation of the Veterans Healthcare System in the late 1990s, when serving as the VA’s undersecretary for Health.
The transformation implemented numerous systemic changes that produced dramatically improved quality of care, service satisfaction and operational efficiency. It has been widely studied throughout the world as a model for health care transformation.
“But our work supporting federal health clients on mission critical initiatives over the past year – and through previous periods of national uncertainty – speaks to the commitment and talent that have always defined who and what we are,” Suh added.
