As Global Healthcare leader for PwC, Dr. David Levy’s mission is to grow and secure the PwC healthcare practice to one of global leadership. Dr. Levy brings a wide-range of experience to the role that uniquely qualifies him to speak to the entire healthcare value chain across PwC’s lines of service – assurance, tax and consulting.
Dr. Levy began his career as a primary care physician and epidemiologist, successfully founding a large primary care practice in suburban New York City. As a quality consultant for large health insurers, he saw the opportunity to re-think how complex patients were treated in the US healthcare system and created Franklin Health Group, one of the nation’s first disease management companies. Dr. Levy guided Franklin Health to a position of prominence in the industry due to its innovative care management models and led it through a series of transactions that returned significant value to all stakeholders. Today, it is a thriving unit of a global point-of-care diagnostics company.
Dr. Levy joined PwC in 2005 to launch its health information technology practice. He then worked on large transformational projects including advising the Louisiana Recovery Authority post-Katrina, on a new blueprint for that state’s healthcare system. Dr. Levy also led the development of the State of California’s catastrophic surge plan which has since become a model for US healthcare disaster planning. As the partner responsible for the strategy of the US healthcare practice, Dr. Levy was the prime architect of the positioning of clients in all healthcare sectors from a patient-centric point-of-view and the resultant convergence requirements of the sectors around the patient.
With hands-on experience and a recognized track record in both private and public sectors, and across the entire value chain of healthcare services, Dr. Levy is uniquely qualified to engage a wide variety of stakeholders in the healthcare industry.
Dr. Levy received his medical and postgraduate medical training at McGill University and is a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine.
