Spectrum Health was designated as one of the top 10 health systems in the nation for clinical quality and efficiency by Thomson Reuters in 2010 and 2011. Dr. Byrnes also held senior executive positions at some of the nation's leading healthcare systems, including Sharp HealthCare, Catholic Healthcare West, and Lovelace Health Systems where he led the development of award winning quality programs, including the Lovelace “Episodes of Care” disease management program.
“John has a proven record of success bringing together physicians and financial executives to improve quality and efficiency,” says Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA, President and CEO of HFMA. “We’re delighted to have him bring this important perspective to HFMA as we bring hospitals, physicians, and payers together to improve the health system.”
Nationally recognized for his work in quality, safety, and outcome reporting, Dr. Byrnes has contributed to seven books, including The Healthcare Quality Book (2003, 2008, 2012), Global Fees for Episodes of Care (1998), and The Health Care Professional's Guide to Patient Centered Care for the 21st Century (1998), The Physician's Guide to Disease Management (1997), and Redesigning Healthcare Delivery (1996).
