Gerry Stanley, M.D. is the Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for Harvard MedTech with a passion for healthcare transformation. Dr. Stanley has a deep expertise in population health management, self-insured health plan management, medical consumerism and direct to employer network enablement.
As a third-generation family physician he has grown up in the evolution of health care delivery systems and is an active proponent of utilizing data and analytics to educate clinicians about the power of managing patient populations one clinical interaction at a time. He describes the opportunity to find a
solution for the growing opioid epidemic and create a resource for clinicians to treat this condition as “a once in a lifetime opportunity to solve a societal need”.

Most recently Dr. Stanley served as the Chief Medical Officer for the Employer and Consumer division of Cerner. While at Cerner he developed a value-based care and population health strategy for critical access hospitals, community hospitals and a framework for health plan development for integrated delivery networks. He also had responsibility for Cerner’s national system on on-site and near-site health centers and pharmacies serving self-insured employers, care coordination teams, a national team of corporate wellness strategists, an analytics division, a third-party administrator (TPA), and the self-insured and direct-to-employer strategies for Cerner clients. He has a unique ability to identify market specific opportunities for development, stabilization, and growth. He believes that a collaborative approach and strong foundational understanding of health care delivery, health systems, insurance brokers/consultants, and self-insured employers is critical to scale health plans and achieve the triple AIM of healthcare.

Dr. Stanley received his undergraduate degree from Creighton University studying Classical and Near Eastern Civilizations where he graduated magna cum laude. He then attended the Creighton University School of Medicine where he served as class president for 3 years, graduating with clinical honors and receiving the university’s highest honor, the Spirit of Creighton Award.
