Dr. Yeri Kim
Principal Health Intelligence and Insights Advisor, ACC
Solving problems to improve healthcare is a mix of passion and curiosity for Yeri.
She has a diverse background, starting as a biomedical scientist where she invented a new drug to target a global health burden (retinal diseases). To translate her invention, Yeri partnered with a university, a commercialisation firm and a biotechnology company for clinical trial testing in the USA.
Following her PhD, Yeri developed and implemented a framework that assesses the value of new health technologies for the largest private health insurance company in New Zealand. The framework informs decisions to achieve better health outcomes and cost-savings with the consumer at the centre.
Yeri is now a Principal Health Intelligence and Insights Advisor for ACC. Yeri advises on ACC’s strategic health objectives to improve health outcomes of ACC’s clients.
