On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, Thompson Coburn LLP released the third episode of its population health podcast, “Talking Pop Health” Episode 3: Amit Vaishampayan on physician compensation and culture, featuring BKD Director Amit Vaishampayan, who assists health care systems throughout their transformation toward population health by helping those systems successfully manage their financial challenges. Amit joined podcast host Eric Tower, a partner at Thompson Coburn, to discuss the important roles compensation and culture play in an organization’s transition to population health.

“It’s difficult for an organization to get started [transitioning to population health] when it’s not ingrained in the culture […] If you believe in pop health, it should be part of the compensation plan and part of the greater culture,” Amit says.

Listen to the full episode below to hear Amit identify common challenges health care systems face as they transition toward population health and the effective strategies these systems can employ to ease the process.


Amit Vaishampayan has 10 years of experience leading valuations of business enterprises. He develops innovative and effective compensation and business structures, designs and implements governance, management, operations and financial systems and works to understand the relationships between health care providers and those engaged with those providers.
