Scott Wallace, JD, MBA, plays an influential part in the transformation of America’s health delivery. He recently served as the Interim Chief Business Officer of the Dell Medical School, where he is an Associate Professor. Leveraging both a business and health policy background, Wallace was appointed by Pres. George W. Bush to chair the Federal Commission on Systemic Interoperability, a commission created to advise the White House and Congress on health transformation through Information Technology (IT). He has held a number of senior leadership positions – as CEO of a specialty chemical company, co-founder of a venture capital fund, CEO of the National Alliance for Health Information Technology, and a transactional attorney at Kirkland & Ellis. He is also a Batten Fellow at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, previously served on the faculty for Harvard Business School’s executive education program on health care strategy, and was a Distinguished Fellow at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

In collaboration with Elizabeth Teisberg – a leading expert on value creation and its integral role in improving service delivery in health care – Wallace teaches workshops on value-based health care delivery using a new case model they developed together, including the proprietary Experience Group research tool. The expert duo – also co-authors of a forthcoming book, “Capability, Comfort and Calm: Designing Health Care Services for Excellence and Empathy” –deliver custom content programs onsite, a significant differentiator from typical executive education platforms.
