Roger Weems is a managing director in the performance excellence practice and leads the clinical impact solutions team at Navigant. Roger has more than 20 years of experience, focused on strategy and operations improvement in the healthcare industry. He has held leadership roles in consulting, provider and medical technology organizations with a focus on strategy-led operational transformation.
Prior to joining Navigant, Roger was the leader of the North America Market at a global medical technology company responsible for the healthcare transformation services business. He and his team provided strategic consulting solutions that integrated and leveraged an array of technologies to address challenges such as access to care, strategic cost management, and care coordination across the continuum. Additionally, they were responsible for developing innovative business models for large health systems that could leverage technology to improve clinical, financial and operational performance. Under Roger’s leadership his team was able to design and implement the largest strategic partnership in North America to date which was a $500M / 15-year business model that drove over $100M in tangible savings to a large health system in the Northeast through standardizing care delivery and improving quality performance.
Roger has also held various hospital leadership roles and was part of an executive team that transformed a near-bankrupt academic medical center in the Northeast from a very unstable and poorly performing single-campus organization to what has now grown into a ten-hospital network. During this turnaround Roger led all performance improvement initiatives and also took on the Chief Supply Chain Officer role as part of his responsibilities. The result was more than a $200M turnaround that was achieved in two years and has been sustained for over 10 years.
Roger is published on the topic of innovative approaches to integrating resident staff into academic medical center operations improvement and is a speaker at national industry events on the topic of operations improvement techniques and industry-provider strategic business models.
