Su­san DeVore, pres­i­dent and CEO of the Pre­mier health­care al­liance

Modern Healthcare - - THE WEEK IN HEALTHCARE -

MH: Does be­ing a woman leader in health­care to­day bring any spe­cial strengths to this kind of trans­for­ma­tion that the health­care sec­tor is try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate right now?

DeVore: I think all di­ver­sity is an as­set, and if it’s a dif­fer­ent way of think­ing, a dif­fer­ent way of look­ing, a dif­fer­ent way of solv­ing a prob­lem. The more you can bring all of that to­gether and you can agree and dis­agree and try things, I think all that works. And so, maybe women are more open to all that col­lab­o­ra­tion and the messi­ness of try­ing to fig­ure things out in a col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ing way. But I ac­tu­ally value the dif­fer­ences and opin­ions every­where I go, and to me it doesn’t mat­ter where they come from or who they come from.
