John played a leadership role in starting the Northwest OpenNotes Consortium and he now leads the development of future consortia. He lives in Oregon but is thrilled to travel throughout the country telling physicians and patients about OpenNotes.
John has over 40 years of experience in clinical medicine and administration, having worked in leadership positions for hospitals, physician groups, insurers, and state government. Before coming to OpenNotes, he was Medical Director for the Drug Effectiveness Review Project, one of the country’s most robust comparative effectiveness programs, as well as the Director of the Health Ratings Center at Consumer Reports from 2008 to 2014. The Ratings Center focuses on explicit approaches evaluating and comparing health services, products, institutions, and practitioners.
John practiced primary care internal medicine from 1976 to 1992 and 2003 to 2008 and is currently on the Oregon Health Policy Board. He has taught in multiple venues—introductory courses to clinical medicine, resident courses in public health and preventive medicine and health policy courses.
