Medvale Members Help Each
Other Through A Network
We call our members (the citizens of our virtual town) Medvalistas. This suggests they are dissatisfied with existing healthcare delivery performance and are actively attempting to make changes. Like in a small town, we have clubs. Our Medvalistas join these Medvale clubs with other healthcare delivery influencers who have similar needs and interests. These clubs are limited to around eight members to keep them small and intimate. They meet monthly for an hour and a half to collaborate and help each other. We call these meetings collaborations.
Below you can see our Medvalistas within their Medvale clubs.
Knowing there has to be a better way, these healthcare idealists are improving healthcare delivery with their innovations.
Doctors who have found themselves in charge of physician enterprises within hospitals want to talk with others in similar positions. No longer practicing clinical medicine full time, other physicians see them differently, while the non-physician executives they engage with daily don’t accept them as one of their own breed. Meanwhile they are expected to engage and empower the physicians they are charged to lead to advance organizational visions and objectives. Skills they didn’t learn in medical school and a tough spot to be placed into.
This intimate club is the safe place where they can talk out their personal and professional frustrations and challenges with trusted peers who are dealing with the same issues. Ideas, support and resources are exchanged leading to their healthcare systems enlightened approaches guiding their vital medical staffs.
Seasoned physician and healthcare executives combine their years of experience to advise Medvalista companies.
Those with the passion and influence to profoundly reinvent delivery of healthcare come together to innovate and help each other create impact.

Once executives have left their all-consuming positions of running a healthcare organization (during the 2.0 phase of their life), they often want a less hectic lifestyle. However, during the 3.0 phase which may be one third of their lives, they still desire meaningful contributions and connections with peers. They have much to give back and experiences to share, often by financially investing in interesting healthcare innovations. This club uniquely offers them those opportunities.
