With a breadth of health care experience spanning several decades, Wendy Everett, ScD was chosen to oversee the formation of NEHI in 2002 as its first president. Along with NEHI’s founders, Dr. Everett’s vision was to create an independent, research-based organization that convened diverse members of the health care industry to achieve the common goal of addressing the most urgent health care issues.
Under her leadership, this vision has resulted in ground breaking research on medical innovation, patient safety, health care spending and health care information technology, and has influenced significant national policy changes. Dr. Everett works with public and private policymakers to translate NEHI’s research findings into long-term solutions that improve health care quality and lower health care costs.
Previously, Dr. Everett held executive positions at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center (UCSF) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. She has directed national demonstration programs for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Kaiser Family Foundations. In the mid-1990s, she was Director of the Institute for the Future, leading the Health and Health Care research team and overseeing the creation of ten-year, national forecasts in health and health care.
Dr. Everett is the Vice Chair of the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission, an independent state agency that monitors the reform of the health care delivery and payment systems in Massachusetts. She also serves on the boards of many philanthropic foundations and non-profit organizations.
Dr. Everett earned two bachelor of science degrees and she holds master’s and doctoral degrees in health policy and management from Harvard University.
