One Medical, the membership-based primary care practice on a mission to transform healthcare, is excited to welcome Jeff Dobro, MD, as our Chief Medical Officer. In this role, Jeff will closely support large employers and plan sponsors as our employer-focused enterprise business continues to expand, as well as partner with payers and our providers to help One Medical continue to be an industry leader in pursuing value-based clinical design and contracting.

Since launching our enterprise business unit just three years ago, One Medical already has:

  • Over 1,000 companies offering our primary care to employees and their families as a highly valued health benefit
  • 8% cost-of-care reduction – attributed to reduction in visits to emergency room, urgent care, and specialists, based on a recent client study
  • Greater than 95% renewal rates from employers year-to-year
  • 90% of eligible members in 2016 came from large employers, including several Fortune 500 clients and new channel partners

As we continue to expand our enterprise product and service-lines that include on-site clinics and workplace-focused mental health offerings, Jeff’s deep expertise in knowing what employers need will allow One Medical to continue to innovate and shape the future of healthcare and benefits.

Jeff brings clinical expertise and decades of thought leadership in population health and integrated health management solutions to One Medical, most recently through a six-year tenure as Chief Medical Officer at Redbrick Health where he oversaw Redbrick’s clinical and consumer health improvement and wellbeing strategy. Previously, he was a Principal and Eastern Region practice leader in Willis Towers Watson’s Health Management practice, building on-site clinics, and developing direct employer-provider contracting, comprehensive quality improvement, and health management solutions for Fortune 1000 employers. Prior to joining the business world, Jeff ran a network of medical practices founded on value-based contracting, making him a pioneer in this space well ahead of his time. Now that he’s returning to primary care, his experience makes him a deep expert in knowing what employers need to reduce healthcare costs while improving employee health outcomes.

“I deeply admire One Medical’s patient-first model, and it’s one of the biggest reasons I’m so excited to be part of this company and work with this team,” said Jeff. “At One Medical, unlike anywhere else, there’s an unparalleled opportunity to lead a successful transition from volume- to value-based service delivery models and promote high-value care that emphasizes patient outcomes. One Medical is deeply invested in this, from executive leadership to clinician groups, and will be at the forefront of fixing the healthcare system.”

“Jeff’s clinical and business expertise is exceptional and well-regarded across the industry.,” said One Medical founder and CEO Tom Lee, MD. “I’m looking forward to Jeff’s leadership as we expand the employer and value-based business at One Medical.”

Jeff, based in New York, officially joins our team on May 22nd and will report to CEO Tom Lee, MD. Jeff earned his MD from The Medical College of Pennsylvania and finished his specialty training at New York University where he continues to teach as a board-certified rheumatologist.
