Julie Panek Anderson
Julie joined Cambia Grove as the new assistant director of strategic initiatives in January 2018, leading the creation and implementation of the new Solution Series. This series is built upon the idea that the community has all the right ingredients to solve big system-wide health care challenges. The Solution Series will convene stakeholders around high-priority topics, identify specific challenges and opportunities associated with each topic, and catalyze solutions to support system-wide transformation.
She comes from Blue Shield of California, where she spent more than 5 years driving cross-organizational collaboration as part of the 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 the provider network 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 husband love to travel, and they attempt to visit at least one new destination each year. She is passionate about health care innovation and transformation, and is thrilled to join the Cambia Grove team.
