Dave Chase

Dave ChaseAdvisory BoardSee More

Dave Chase earned his BS degree from the University of Washington and spent his early consulting years in the healthcare practice of Anderson Consulting in the IT sector. Changing employers, he helped to develop the early healthcare products of Microsoft. He also was involved in several Internet-based startups where he drew the conclusion that “healthcare is where Internet startups go to die.”

Mr. Chase avoided the healthcare industry for several years but could not resist the temptation to return to the chaos and turmoil that the ACA created. He returned to help develop outcomes/value-based models that he felt were sorely needed in the industry and in public policy. Some described Mr. Chase as a provocateur when he presented the often-watched Ted speech on “What healthcare has done to America.” Mr. Chase insists that the blame game between all players in the healthcare industry must stop in order for these players to come together to fix the “seriously rigged” revenue cycle of healthcare. He hopes to help healthcare providers avoid the same mistakes in their industry that newspapers made by missing the digital media phenomenon.

He brings to the Advisory Board a strong contact base with business CEOs of Virginia companies. He is disappointed in feeling that consumers, government, and business leaders have only recently developed a modest interest in reducing healthcare spending. He is convinced that incentives must be developed to deliver and pay for excellent healthcare that are aligned between patients and providers, and not insurance/TPA interests, that he describes as the most powerful lobby in Washington.
