About this Episode

As healthcare organizations look for ways to weather financial hardships, many leaders are looking at strategic partnerships to sustain their business. The word "partnership" gets thrown around a lot in healthcare and can mean a lot of different things. But what defines a good partnership, and how do you know if one is right for your organization?

In this episode, Host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites John Muir Chief Strategy Officer George Sauter and President of Optum's Market Performance Partnership Chris Pass to discuss why they decided to partner back in 2019, what they've gained, where they had to compromise, and how they define success.
