May 12. There’s a new job at Atrium Health: Chief Managed Health Executive. The new role is designed to bring a consumer perspective to products and services across the Atrium Health enterprise, while also factoring in the consumer’s desire for improved value and outcomes into the health system’s relationships with insurance companies, health plans and government programs.
