MHMC appoints new CEO

The Maine Health Management Coalition has appointed its next CEO, Andrew Webber, who will lead the organization's participation in a $33 million federal health care reform grant.

The organization announced Webber's appointment Monday. He comes from a 10-year stint as the president and CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based National Business Coalition on Health. He succeeds Doug Libby and Elizabeth Mitchell as leader of the organization that brings together a coalition of large health care insurance purchasers to provide information to assess the quality and cost of health care in the state.

Webber is also a board member of the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative, the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute and the Center for Advancing Health.

Earlier this year, the federal government announced that MHMC was one of six recipients of a $33 million grant to expand its work. This summer, the organization will also be one of just four in the country to receive Medicare data that it will incorporate into its public reporting of health care quality and cost statistics.
