Associate, Healthcare (Consulting Industry)
Tapestry Networks exists to help the leaders of the most important institutions in the world do their work more effectively and with greater confidence. We create an environment where directors, executives, regulators, and policymakers learn from one another, explore new ideas, and collaborate to solve problems, working across the public and private sectors. Our work creates value for those who participate, for those who sponsor it, and for society. Since 2003 we have helped groups of leaders deal with difficult problems, all material to the success of their organizations. We do this by combining face-to-face meetings with structured problem solving to identify issues, clarify shared objectives, and look for solutions. Tapestry’s networks proceed from peer education to building understanding, developing trust and insight and, in some cases, testing specific initiatives aimed at common goals. Our approach has had consistent impact. For example:
- Public and private healthcare leaders in Europe addressed the goals of improving patient outcomes and enhancing innovation while controlling healthcare costs. This initiative has resulted in multi-stakeholder consultations in drug development to better assess and validate the emerging value of new medicines.
- Leading US oncology practices and payers are collaborating to explore the advantages and challenges of new payment models in cancer care, and to learn from experiments that reward the provision of less costly, high quality services and treatments. A multi-year initiative has helped share lessons from pilot projects aimed at managing the cost of care; the results will be important influences on US health financing reform.
- Directors, attorneys and academic experts are pioneering a new approach to building board capabilities in overseeing cybersecurity and privacy risk.
- Investment executives, directors, and a range of other professionals worked together to develop the Shareholder Director Exchange (SDX), a new protocol for safe, legal communication between directors and investment groups.
- Non-executive directors, regulators, investors and corporate executives are all working intensively on superior approaches for board leadership of environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
