So says Sachin Jain, MD, MBA, President & Chief Executive Officer of SCAN Group and Health Plan, who joins the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast to talk about virtual care, health equity, what consumers want, and SCAN’s work to address homelessness as a healthcare problem. In this show, Sachin and host Tom Robinson, a Health and Life Sciences partner at Oliver Wyman, talk about how leaders can align their management styles with those of the people they work with.
