Dr. Miller is a healthcare and life sciences expert. For more than 25 years, Dr. Miller has been supporting the development, reimbursement, and appropriate use of clinical and scientific innovations to expand access to better care and improve outcomes.

He helps organizations achieve their objectives by creating knowledge-based strategies and executable tactics that integrate the roles, concerns, and needs of patients, clinicians, provider organizations, businesses, community-based organizations, and local and national governments. These strategies and tactics lead to improved health, healthcare markets, and clinical and economic outcomes by incorporating integrated analyses of clinical, scientific, economic, stakeholder, and political aspects of critical issues, and aligning key internal and external perspectives.

In his work as a healthcare and life sciences expert, Dr. Miller has worked with large and small organizations and private companies, including AdvaMed, Amgen, Bread for the City, Breakaway Policy Strategies, CITL, Center for Medical Technology Policy, Cytokinetics, Endo, Feinstein Kean Healthcare, Foley Hoag, GE healthymagination, Gilead, Johnson & Johnson, Monitor, NEHI, Novartis, OnDeck Biotech, Pfizer, PhRMA, and the Personalized Medicine Coalition. He has also worked with governmental organizations, including the National Governors Association (and various state agencies and executives), the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the National Institutes of Health, and the White House’s Office of Management and Budget.

Projects have involved new financing and delivery models, reimbursement practices, government programs, telemedicine, IP protection, and innovations for specific clinical conditions and populations to achieve measurable clinical and economic improvements. Clinical areas have included autoimmune diseases, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, COPD, diabetes, infectious diseases, maternal and child health, mental illnesses, musculoskeletal conditions, neurodegenerative diseases, osteoporosis, pain and opioids, public health, and prevention.

In addition to Dr. Miller’s various work projects, he has also spoken and written extensively about the interactions across the healthcare delivery, financing, research, and public health systems.
