advanced illness, marks the accelerated onboarding of payer clients with
the expansion of its advisory board to include Dr. C. Jason Wang, M.D.,

Center for Policy, Outcomes, and Prevention, and co-chair of mobile

Greer Myers, president, Turn-Key, says, “We are singularly focused on

prediction using AI and machine learning, as well as technologies that
optimize our engagement with patients and caregivers. Wang’s background
and passion for improving quality certainly fulfills this unique need,
and we are honored to have a man of his stature and prominence as an
advisor. His commitment to achieving quality healthcare is evident, and
we place great value on his technical direction for further refining our
approach to CBPC.”

Prior to coming to Stanford in 2011, Wang was a faculty member at Boston
University Schools of Medicine and Public Health. His other professional
experiences include working as a management consultant with McKinsey and

Insurance Reform Task-force. He has been the principal investigator on a
number of quality improvement and quality assessment projects funded by
the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Institutes of Health

Mellon Foundation, and the Andrew T. Huang Medical Education Promotion
Fund (Taiwan).

Accepting the appointment, Wang says, “It is an honor to work with such
an inventive organization that shares my commitment to healthcare
quality improvement. I look forward to interacting with colleagues and
helping Turn-Key meet the expectations of payers seeking a thoughtful,
cost-effective palliative care solution.”

Among his many awards and accomplishments, Wang was selected as the
student speaker for the Harvard Medical School Commencement in 1996. He
was a recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, and
was named a “Viewpoints” regular contributor for the Journal of the
American Medical Association (JAMA).
He also served as an external
reviewer for the 2011 IOM Report “Child and Adolescent Health and Health
Care Quality: Measuring What Matters” and as a reviewer for AHRQ study
sections.

U.S.-China Cooperation in Health,” was selected as the first-place
American essay in the 2003 A. Doak Barnett Memorial Essay Contest
sponsored by the National Committee on United States-China Relations.

He earned his Bachelor of Science from MIT, Doctor of Medicine from
