Laurel Pickering, MPH

Executive Vice President, Enterprise Solutions

As Welldoc’s Exec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, Enter­prise Solu­tions, is respon­si­ble for broad­en­ing rela­tion­ships with key stake­hold­ers to expand use of Welldoc’s FDA-cleared, proven BlueS­tar® dig­i­tal ther­a­peu­tic.

Lau­rel is a leader and vision­ary, devot­ed to trans­form­ing health­care at both region­al and nation­al lev­els. Before join­ing Well­doc, Lau­rel served as pres­i­dent & CEO of North­east Busi­ness Group on Health (NEBGH) for near­ly 25 years. There, she built an employ­er-led coali­tion of health­care lead­ers and oth­er stake­hold­ers with the mis­sion of empow­er­ing mem­bers to dri­ve excel­lence and val­ue in health­care and the patient expe­ri­ence. NEBGH cur­rent­ly has 170 mem­bers com­prised of nation­al and glob­al self-insured employ­ers based in New York, New Jer­sey, Con­necti­cut and Mass­a­chu­setts; plus nation­al health plans, major con­sult­ing orga­ni­za­tions, region­al hos­pi­tal sys­tems and oth­er key stake­hold­ers.

Under Laurel’s lead­er­ship, NEBGH became one of the most active and influ­en­tial health­care-focused busi­ness coali­tions in the coun­try, focused on mov­ing toward a val­ue-based deliv­ery sys­tem. NEBGH deliv­ers edu­ca­tion­al and train­ing pro­grams for ben­e­fits exec­u­tives, user groups designed to help them improve health plan and PBM per­for­mance, and guid­ance on pri­vate exchanges via the Pri­vate Exchange Eval­u­a­tion Col­lab­o­ra­tive (PEEC), of which Lau­rel is a founder.

On the nation­al lev­el, Lau­rel serves as Chair of the Board of Direc­tors of The Leapfrog Group and on the Board of the Nation­al Qual­i­ty Forum. She pre­vi­ous­ly served on the Board of the Nation­al Alliance of Health Care Pur­chas­er Coali­tions. Lau­rel received her BA in Anthro­pol­o­gy from SUNY Albany and MPH from Emory Uni­ver­si­ty.
