Crossover Health Medical Group has announced that Kelly Traver, MD will become the Corporate Medical Director for its rapidly expanding primary care group. Crossover Health provides comprehensive primary care and state-of-the-art health management services for self-insured employers. The medical group, along with its associated management services company, is currently implementing worksite health centers with several high-profile companies in the Bay Area as it extends its next generation health care model nationally.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the effort to bring Crossover Health’s unique technology-enabled health care to Silicon Valley,” said Dr. Traver. “We are committed to bringing a new model of health to our patient employees and client employers that will deliver the highest standard of care within the context of an exceptional patient experience."
Dr. Traver completed her medical degree and training at Stanford where she served an additional year as chief resident. She has practiced as an Internist and Partner at Menlo Medical Clinic, is the former medical director at Google, and was the founder of Healthiest You, an on-line health and wellness service that was successfully sold just prior to Dr. Traver joining Crossover Health. She is also the author of The Healthiest You, published by Simon and Schuster in 2009.
In her new role, Dr. Traver will be responsible for the overall patient experience which includes implementing an evidence based, best outcome approach to health care. In this role, she will continue to provide direct patient care, have oversight of care teams deployed at client sites, and ensure that Crossover Health physicians are delivering cost effective, high quality, and best experience outcomes. She will also be involved with several business and technology development projects at the company.
