Chief Executive Officer

Allen Miller is the Principal and CEO of COPE Health Solutions. With over 25 years of experience providing health system and payor value-based payment strategy and transformation consulting services, Mr. Miller has led the planning and implementation of IDNs, IPAs, and ACOs throughout the U.S. More recently, he has been focused on facilitating and implementing long-term payor/provider partnerships that go beyond the typical capitation and global risk models. These innovative collaborations are focused on reducing total cost of care and improving the total premium and other revenue needed to fund profitability and ongoing infrastructure investment. Under Mr. Miller’s leadership, COPE Health Solutions and its subsidiary Analytics for Risk Contracting (ARC) LLC have become the preeminent go-to solutions companies for health systems and health plans committed to leadership roles in population health management for all lines of business

COPE Health Solutions complements its consulting services with the largest health care talent pipeline in the country, known as COPE Health Scholars providing a unique health care training experience to over 4500 students annually in over 20 hospital and ambulatory sites throughout California and Washington State. All participants receive a certificate from the UCLA School of Public Health. Select students are trained as care navigators, health coaches and complex care managers to support new roles being created as health system clients develop population health management capabilities and capacity.

A hallmark of COPE Health Solutions’ consulting services is engagement in transformative strategic planning, design and implementation work with large health systems, health plans and others to develop clinically integrated delivery networks, re-design financial incentives and to learn to leverage financial risk to improve quality and reduce costs. Mr. Miller and his team are consistently on the cutting edge of work to implement new health care policy, including federal demonstrations and state waivers across the country, by partnering with providers and payors to transform fragmented, acute care “un-systems” of delivery into coordinated systems of care focused on improving the health of populations, while enhancing efficiency and aligning financial incentives.
