Mark Hagland is Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare Innovation. He has over 31 years’ experience as an editor, writer, and speaker in healthcare. He has covered every aspect of the U.S. healthcare industry, from federal and state healthcare policy, to operational issues across the industry, to quality improvement, to strategic information technology issues. He is the author of two books—Paradox and Imperatives in Health Care (2008), co-authored with Jeffrey C. Bauer, Ph.D.; and Transformative Quality: The Emerging Revolution In Health Care Performance (2009). He joined then-Healthcare Informatics as a Contributing Editor in 2000, and was named Editor-in-Chief in 2010, and helped transition the title of the publication to Healthcare Innovation in 2019, as the publication increasingly focused on the shift from volume to value in the U.S. healthcare delivery system.
