How Pamela is building a better working world

Pamela is passionate about making healthcare affordable and accessible to all and helping to ensure we collectively maximize the opportunity to continually innovate in R&D. Critical to this is the industry to define, measure and design payment systems aligned to outcomes based performance rather the present ‘input and activity based’ systems. Increased computational power and AI, along with more demanding consumers, brings unparalleled opportunity for innovation and collaboration with disruptors to the traditional industry value chain.

“Strong data science and behavioral science as well as clinical and medicinal science capabilities will be critical for success.”
