As a family physician, Scott became proficient in analyzing problems, providing solutions while serving as personal “health coach” to his patients. As a hospital executive, he was challenged daily with a wide range of organizational issues, once again calling on his abilities to think strategically, orchestrate effective solutions, and motivate his staff with a vision of the future.
While serving in the healthcare industry, Scott has facilitated a number of organizational planning activities for a number of churches, schools, and non-profit organizations as a member of the TAG consulting team. In addition, he has a special passion for private schools. As a board member of such a school, he is spearheading an extensive board reorganization effort and the development of a joint operating agreement with an affiliated local school.
In addition to his work with TAG, Scott currently serves as the Chief Medical Officer of a 500-physician multi-specialty organization and has consulted with hospitals around the country training medical staff and hospital leadership in the principles of quality improvement, hospital and physician profiling, consumer-driven healthcare, clinical innovation, and pay for performance models. He has also published and spoken nationally on clinical case management. Scott regularly guest lectures at the School of Nursing at the University of Washington-Tacoma, addressing issues of healthcare quality while also consulting with Gateway Medical Alliance, an international medical relief organization, in areas of organizational and board development. In addition, he serves as board member of a regional healthplan and the WSMA Foundation for Quality, while working closely with the Puget Sound Health Alliance Quality Improvement Council. Scott continues to serve on a wide variety of other civic, corporate, and non-profit boards.
