Dr. Schreiner will focus on helping hospitals and health systems with population health management, coordinated care across the continuum, and effective hospital-physician alignment. “Redesigning care delivery is at the heart of health reform.

He brings a strong track record of creating integrated healthcare that results in more effective and efficient clinical outcomes.” Dr. Schreiner, a pulmonologist and critical care specialist, brings more than 25 years of physician leadership and executive experience to Huron Healthcare’s Clinical solutions team. Most recently he served as executive medical director for Kaiser Permanente Georgia, where he held several executive and clinical management positions throughout his 20-year career there, including chief operating officer, associate medical director for hospital, specialty and ancillary care, and chief of medical-hospitalist services and pulmonary critical care services. Dr. Schreiner earned a bachelor’s of science in chemistry and attended medical school at the University of Tennessee. He completed his residency at Vanderbilt University Medical School, where he served as chief resident and then went on to complete a fellowship for pulmonary and critical care at Colorado Health Sciences Center.
