Julie Panek Anderson
Julie joined Cambia Grove in January 2018 to lead the creation and implementation of the Solutions Lab, an initiative built upon the idea that the community has all the right ingredients to solve big system-wide health care challenges. The Solutions Lab convenes stakeholders around high-priority topics, identifies challenges and opportunities, and catalyzes solutions to support system-wide transformation.
Prior to joining Cambia Grove, Julie she spent more than 5 years with Blue Shield of California driving cross-organizational collaboration as part of their Accountable Care Organization (ACO) program. As Senior Manager of the ACO Program Development and Innovation team, she drove multi-disciplinary efforts to build transformative new care models and better enable provider networks through improvements in technology enablement and team-based care.
Julie began her career in health care in 2006 in hospital revenue cycle consulting, before pursuing a master’s degree in public health from Johns Hopkins. Later, as a process improvement specialist at Stanford Hospital, she drove Lean/Six Sigma projects across the health system and gained insights into the challenges faced at the provider level.
Julie tries to be outdoors as much as possible, and is an avid hiker and snowboarder. She and her family love to travel, and attempt to visit at least one new destination each year. She is passionate about health care innovation and transformation, and is thrilled to be a member of the Cambia Grove team.
