Courage in Healthcare: Dr. Grace Terrell

By: Kyle Worthy

A true pioneer in the transition to value-based care


This week we speak with Dr. Grace Terrell. Dr. Terrell is a highly regarded internal medicine physician from High Point, NC. In addition to practicing medicine, she has also served as CEO for Envision Genomics, Inc and CHESS, a population health management company. Today, she is the CEO of Eventus WholeHealth, a pioneering team of healthcare professionals who provide comprehensive, whole-person care to patients in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and senior independent living facilities. 


In 1995, Dr. Terrell founded Cornerstone Health Care with seven other physicians. Cornerstone was one of the first organizations in the country to adopt a value-based care model, lowering the cost and improving the quality of care for their sickest, most vulnerable patients.


Since her time at Cornerstone, Dr. Terrell has been a thought leader in the value-based care movement. Her latest book, Value-Based Healthcare and Payment Models: Including Frontline Strategies for 20 Clinical Subspecialties, provides practical, no-nonsense advice on how to transition to value-based care. 


In this episode, we talk with Dr. Terrell about her experience at the forefront of this movement, what it takes to successfully transition to a new care model, and what the future holds for value-based care.
