Dr. Nancy Lane, Vice President for Population Health at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, will be coming to speak with interested students.
Dr. Lane’s responsibilities include oversight of the creation of systems and programs necessary to successfully manage the quality and cost of health care delivery under population-based reimbursement models where VUMC will be paid based on how well it manages the overall health of populations of patients served by both VUMC and through the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network (VHAN).
Prior to joining Vanderbilt, Dr. Lane worked for 18 years with ValueOptions, the country’s largest privately owned behavioral health and wellness organization. Most recently, she was chief executive officer of the company’s Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP), which manages publicly funded mental health, substance abuse and integrated care management services for more than 400,000 members across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
In this position, she worked extensively with state agencies, providers, consumers and advocates in implementing new services and programs. In 2011, she led MBHP’s efforts to successfully win a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation grant, which funded the development and testing of a program that included a new type of recovery peer navigator and the use of incentives in treating addiction.
Prior to 1997, Dr. Lane served in leadership positions for several managed care organizations, including CNR Health and American Psych Management (a predecessor firm to ValueOptions).
A licensed psychologist, Dr. Lane received her Ph.D. and M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Rutgers University and her B.A. from Macalester College.
