Eric Raymond, CEO of Corporate Synergies, Joins The Board of The Center for Health Value Innovation
Corporate Synergies (CSG), a full-service independent employee benefits consultant and brokerage firm, and The Center for Health Value Innovation which fosters innovative strategy designs across all healthcare stakeholders, announced today that Mr. Eric Raymond, chief executive officer of Corporate Synergies, was elected to The Center for Health Value Innovation's board of directors.
"Eric is obviously doing a terrific job as CEO of Corporate Synergies, and we look forward to his contributions as a member of The Center for Health Value Innovation's board of directors," said David Horn, The Center for Health Value Innovation's Chairman of the Board. "Corporate Synergies is very focused on innovation and we think Eric's insights and experience will be very valuable in helping to guide The Center for Health Value Innovation in the years ahead."
"Within our industry, The Center for Health Value Innovation is one of the companies in the country that I most admire," said Eric Raymond. "I'm really looking forward to working with David and the board to help with all of the amazing innovations that they are bringing to the marketplace."
Eric Raymond brings the unique perspective of one who has represented insurance carriers, insurance brokers and health care providers. With 25 years of industry experience, he knows the issues inside and out, while others are seeking to accurately define the problem, Raymond has been dedicating his career to creating common sense, cost-effective solutions to America's growing health care crisis which perfectly complements The Center for Health Value Innovation's needs.
"The out-of-control upward spiral of healthcare costs has led too many employers to focus on short-term fixes for their immediate needs," said Eric Raymond, CEO of Corporate Synergies. "In fact, these measures typically compound problems for the employer and the employee over the long term and end up costing more in medical dollars and lost productivity in the workplace." Mr. Raymond continues, "I applaud the Center for Health Value Innovation for their commitment of improved health management and market leadership which mirrors Corporate Synergies market movement in value-based health designs."
