CareCredit, a provider of promotional financing for healthcare, has named three experts to its newly created healthcare advisory council that aims to address today’s healthcare challenges and help drive innovative and effective solutions.

The council will work alongside CareCredit’s executive leadership team to provide insight on the continually changing medical payment landscape, insurance coverage and the technology associated with the growing focus on patient payments.

Joining this newly formed council are healthcare entrepreneur Pat Basu, chief medical officer for Centria Health Steven Merahn, and the chief population health officer for Essentia Health Debbie Welle-Powell.

“With rising insurance premiums, increasing deductibles, and continual growth in out-of-pocket costs across the board, patients today may face real challenges when it comes to paying for healthcare,” said Dave Fasoli, CEO of CareCredit and executive vice president of Synchrony. “We are committed to tapping into the creative thinking and perspective of industry leaders who can help us develop new approaches to help patients and providers overcome today’s challenges in the medical space.”
