Podcast 01.09: One Person Can Make a Difference
Because it’s Women’s History Month, we are highlighting women in the Utah business community. We’re looking at their personal stories to help explain how they got to where they are today.
In this episode we speak with Dr. Donna Milavetz, CEO and Founder of OnSite Care. We discuss what motivates her, barriers to women and the advice she would give to young women. We also discuss the overall need for health care, what it’s like to work on the business side and what is to come in the future.
About our Guest
After 20 years of practicing internal medicine, Dr. Milavetz recognized how truly broken our healthcare system was. The traditional fee-for-service model of healthcare was driving up costs, reducing the quality of care and leaving both patients and doctors dissatisfied. Dr. Milavetz knew she could generate better health outcomes for patients with greater savings for employers using a model that places real value on primary care.
Originally created to let Dr. Milavetz provide her patients with the level of care she felt they deserved, OnSite Care has become a win-win model of healthcare delivery. Physicians can focus on the health of their patients rather than the business of medicine. Patients feel valued and become engaged participants in the achievement of their own health outcomes. Employers see reduced healthcare costs, greater employee satisfaction with their level of care, and the increased productivity of a healthier workforce.
Dr. Milavetz holds a master’s degree in public health from the prestigious University of Minnesota, where she also completed her internal medicine residency. She trained at one of Harvard’s training hospitals and has worked at the Mayo Clinic.
