Landmark Health CEO Chris Johnson joins Eric to share his vision for the aging health system of tomorrow and his organization’s mission to help seniors age in place by extending primary and urgent care into the homes of patients with challenging illnesses. Finally, Chris talks about the shift to value-based care and how providers can navigate the new landscape by leveraging technology to create and execute the most effective care plan for each individual.
Launched in 2014, Landmark currently is in 25 states with around 300,000 patients. By the end of next year, the integrated health provider will be in about 40 states with just over half a million patients. A fully mobile medical group, Landmark brings medical care into the homes of seniors and chronically ill patients. These home-based visits are conducted by doctors, advanced practitioners, and care team members to supplement the care patients receive from their primary care providers and specialists – at no additional cost.
Chris joined Landmark in 2017 as Vice President and General Manager, responsible for launching the New England market. Most recently, Chris has served as Landmark’s Head of Corporate Development, responsible for the company’s growth strategy, strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and public policy. In this position, Chris was integral in spearheading Landmark’s merger with Optum and leading the company’s integration into Optum’s Home and Community platform. He was named one of Aging Media Network’s 2022 Vision Series Leaders.
Before Landmark, Chris was a Principal at Innosight, a healthcare-focused growth strategy consultancy and Co-founder of Predilytics, a healthcare analytics business. Chris holds a Bachelor of Arts in economics from Harvard College. He also received his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
