Linda Lane, President of Harbor Health Systems, Selected as a “Woman to Watch” by Business Insurance
Posted on 10.28.15
Newport Beach, Calif (October 28, 2015) – Linda Lane, President of Harbor Health Systems, a One Call Care Management company, has been selected for Business Insurance’s 2015 “Women to Watch” list for her achievements during her 20-year career in workers’ compensation.
“Through Linda Lane’s efforts and innovation, thousands of injured workers are enjoying better outcomes and faster return to work,” said Joe Delaney, President and CEO of One Call. “On a daily basis, stakeholders in workers’ compensation benefit from the initiatives she has helped introduce that improve results, eliminate fragmentation, and broaden the adoption of best practices and clinical excellence throughout the industry. We are very proud of this well-deserved recognition of Linda’s achievements and her future contributions.”
As President of Harbor Health Systems, Lane is leading the drive to build this industry-leading provider benchmarking company from a stand-alone tool that identifies high performing physicians to the next level of solution: an integrated approach that links best providers across the continuum of care, from first interaction with a best-in-class physician to the necessary diagnostics, physical therapy, specialists, home care, equipment and ongoing care.
Lane’s career in workers’ compensation began in 1996 when she joined MSC Care Management (now One Call). From the outset, Lane’s approach to innovation was characterized by aligning directly with customers to identify their needs and take a consultative approach to create solutions that addressed those needs.
Some of Lane’s most notable accomplishments in the workers’ compensation industry include:
- Improving safety, efficiency and patient outcomes in pharmacy management.
- Leveraging technology for efficiency in medical and claims management.
- Introducing a new model for post-discharge services.
After MSC Care Management and One Call Medical combined to become one company – One Call Care Management – Lane’s role expanded to the position of Executive Vice President, where she was responsible for developing solutions for payor and industry challenges as well as working with senior management in charting the growth of the company through expansion and acquisition.
Business Insurance will release a special report with profiles of all the honorees in the December 7th issue as well as recognize Lane and other winners at the annual Women to Watch Leadership Conference and Awards event in New York City on December 15th.
