Pearl Health, a leading technology company focused on physician enablement and risk bearing in value-based care, announced the addition of Cameron Berg, MD, FACEP, FAAEM, who joins the Pearl team as Executive Vice President, Clinical Strategy. Dr. Berg, who served as Senior Clinical Advisor to the Pearl team for nearly a year before joining in this full-time capacity, has been empowered to build out Pearl’s burgeoning Clinical Strategy team to help primary care providers identify opportunities to provide proactive patient care.
Pearl Health helps primary care organizations succeed in value-based care through purpose-built technology that can be deployed at scale and services that target high-impact opportunities to drive performance for individual providers. Pearl’s Clinical Strategy, Data Science, and Performance Operations teams work together to surface patterns of spend or utilization that present the highest risk for PCPs and their patients (e.g., preventable readmissions or complex conditions), build capabilities that enable PCPs to manage this risk (e.g., discharge alerts, benefit enhancements, or clinical advisory services), and track metrics to improve performance.
“With our technology, we seek to generate insights that help PCPs and their staff focus on what matters most to drive patient outcomes. Our data and our data science can identify these opportunities and tell us what should happen, and Dr. Berg ensures that our work is clinically appropriate and resonant with our provider partners. This combination is so powerful,” said Jennifer Rabiner, Chief Product Officer of Pearl Health. “Dr. Berg’s clinical experience, expertise in informatics, and empathy for providers and their patients make him uniquely well suited to identify actionable opportunities, and design effective tactics and interventions that we can bring into our technology and services. He is an incredible colleague, and is a tremendous asset to Pearl — I am thrilled to have him on the team.”
Before joining the Pearl Health team, Dr. Berg worked as an emergency physician at North Memorial Health, where he also developed an interest in population health and cultivated a passion for disambiguating complicated workflows. Ultimately, this passion led him to national prominence within acute care, as a leading voice advocating for interdisciplinary value-based workflows. Dr. Berg suffered major injuries in 2020, when he was hit by a car while bicycling to work; the resulting injuries prevented him from returning to clinical career, and his personal experiences with healthcare reinforced his commitment to both physician- and patient-centered care. Dr. Berg received his MD with honors from The George Washington University School of Medicine, specialty training in Emergency Medicine at Stanford University, and BA from Pomona College.
“I’ve had the privilege of participating in healthcare delivery from many different perspectives, and Pearl’s mission is uniquely suited to the challenges of our modern system,” said Cameron Berg, MD, FACEP, FAAEM, Executive Vice President of Clinical Strategy. “My personal journey of recovery entrenched my desire to equip primary care physicians, the backbone of healthcare, with the technology, insights, and enablement that they deserve. We’re genuinely changing the trajectory of healthcare delivery. I’m delighted to join the team!”
In addition to its provider-enablement technology and services, Pearl Health partners with organizations large and small with bespoke financial arrangements that help ease the transition to value-based care.
