Murray Ross is a Vice President with Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California, where he leads the Kaiser Permanente Institute for Health Policy. He also serves as Senior Lecturer at the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine. Dr. Ross chairs the boards of the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review and the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation and served on the board of the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement.
The Institute for Health Policy seeks to shape the public policy environment by drawing on Kaiser Permanente’s evidence and experience in meeting the health and care needs of over 12 million people. It does so by convening public forums on policy issues, publications, digital media, and by supporting and promoting the work of like-minded partner organizations.
An economist by training, Dr. Ross speaks frequently to domestic and international audiences on a range of health care and policy topics. Before joining Kaiser Permanente in 2002, he was an advisor to the U.S. Congress, first with the Congressional Budget Office and later as executive director of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission. He enjoys running, writing, photography, and traveling (in the before time).
