DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger President and CEO David T. Feinberg, M.D., MBA, has been named one of 2017’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare Magazine. 

Now in its 16th year, Modern Healthcare’s annual “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” list honors and recognizes individuals who have had the most significant impact on the health care industry, as voted on by their peers and the magazine’s senior editors.

Dr. Feinberg moved to No. 24 on the 2017 list, up from No. 85 in 2016. Notable national policy makers, hospital leaders and insurance executives have also made the 2017 list, including U.S. Senator John McCain, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Tom Price, and the CEOs of the Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permanente and the Cleveland Clinic.

A longtime champion of the patient experience, Dr. Feinberg caught the industry’s attention by introducing Geisinger’s latest evolution of its renowned ProvenCare portfolio - ProvenExperience - which allows patients to request a refund based on the outcome of their patient experiences. In 2017, he also introduced Springboard Health, Geisinger’s newest population health initiative, which plans to take a radical approach in transforming the health of an entire community. 

Dr. Feinberg earned his undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley, and graduated with distinction from the University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School. He earned a Master’s of Business Administration from Pepperdine University. 

This is the third time Dr. Feinberg has made Modern Healthcare’s 100 Most Influential list. In addition to this recognition, he recently ranked in the top three of the health care magazine’s “Top 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders” 2017 list, among other national honors.
