Raymond Tsai, MD MS
Vice President, Advanced Primary Care
Purchaser Business Group on Health 

“Dr. Raymond Tsai is a Family Medicine physician serving as Vice President of Advanced Primary Care for Purchaser Business Group on Health, a non-profit coalition of around 40 private employers and public entities nationally that collectively spend $350 billion annually purchasing health care services for more than 21 million Americans and their families. He is currently working with PBGH to help employer and purchaser members identify high quality advanced primary care that meet purchaser standards, as well as enabling easy contracting of identified clinical partners of assured quality.

Prior to PBGH, he served as executive medical leadership for a private company’s effort to invest in primary care for their employees and their families. Dr. Tsai was inspired to continue working on behalf of employers when he saw the effect their advanced primary care model had to improve health outcomes, patient experience, provider experience, health equity, and health care spend. He has been recognized for his work as a Presidential Leadership Scholar, a partnership among the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson. Dr. Tsai’s previous professional endeavors also include working at WHO as a Technical Officer where he contributed to multiple publications around traditional medicine policy, and in New Orleans to implement an $8.7 million grant to rebuild health clinics after hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Raymond received his MD from Stanford University, completed his residency in Family Medicine at UCLA, received his MS in Health Policy and Management from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and obtained his B.A. in Music: Vocal Performance from UC San Diego.”
