James L. Schroeder, MD, MBA, a physician with expertise relating to health care reimbursement, quality and contracting, as well as in ambulatory practice management, has been named associate dean for clinical affairs and vice president for physician integration at the University of Chicago Medicine, effective October 1, 2013.
Schroeder will report jointly to the dean for clinical affairs and to the president of the medical center. He will be a key participant in contract negotiations with insurers and other payers. He will be part of teams assembled to advance the University of Chicago Health Plan and to develop novel payment systems suited to the rapidly changing health care environment. He also will help optimize the Medical Center's electronic medical records system, especially as it relates to ambulatory care, and will collaborate in enhancing the institution's risk-management efforts.
"I am thrilled to have the chance to make a contribution to such a great institution and to work closely with colleagues who will help it make significant advances in these important areas," Schroeder said.
Schroeder, 61, a practicing rheumatologist with special expertise in innovative treatments for autoimmune diseases, will continue to see patients.
He comes to the University of Chicago from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, where he was an associate professor of clinical medicine and senior associate dean for external relations.
Schroeder earned his BA from Yale University in 1974 and his MD from the University of Virginia in 1978. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Northwestern University Medical Center in 1981, followed by a two-year research fellowship in rheumatology at Washington University in St Louis.
He returned to Chicago in 1983, joining the faculty at Northwestern, where he specialized in the care of patients with arthritis and contributed to an important series of clinical studies testing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation as a treatment for various forms of arthritis and other autoimmune disorders.
Schroeder has developed a deep understanding of health care policy and organization. He earned an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg Graduate School of Management in 1987 and served in several administrative roles at Northwestern, including as director of managed care for 14 years, vice president for clinical development for six years and president and chief executive officer for 10 years for the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation., 26 May 2005 [cached]
"The reason there are not more insurance companies in the state is not because they were making too much money," says James L. Schroeder, CEO and president of Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, which comprises about 600 doctors.

Jamie Schroeder admits his demanding work and training schedule keeps him on his toes."It does take a lot of energy and will power," said Schroeder."The main thing is that I put in time each day for each separate area."
The Wilmette, Ill., native currently lives in Bethesda, Md., and trains out of Potomac Boat Club."I practice in the morning, take public transportation to work from 9 to 5, and then have time for practice in the evening," he said.
Schroeder began rowing at Northwestern University in 2001 before completing his undergraduate degree in biotechnology at Stanford University in 2005.
He is presently involved in a unique graduate partnership program with Oxford University, which allows him to work toward his Ph.D. while holding a joint position at the U.S. National Institute of Health.Specifically, he works for the government-funded National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in the Laboratory of Cardiac Energetics.
"The program is a different style than the traditional degree process.I was able to find a topic and build collaboration in the area of my choice," said Schroeder, who was accepted into the program last winter."The focus of my thesis is the regulation of the inside of muscle cells and mitochondrial function.This area is not yet entirely understood, and I am doing a real-time analysis of these cells using cutting-edge technology developed by the NIH."
Schroeder has a variety of prepared responses for people who inquire about his studies."I study the benefits of health and exercise; I design two-photon microscopes; or I analyze mitochondrial function.I tell them I am doing something exceptionally obscure," he said.
The relationship between Schroeder's chosen academic path, his passion for being active, and his interest in rowing is obvious.Growing up in the Midwest with little knowledge of the sport certainly hasn't affected this three-time senior national team member's success.
Less than 18 months after picking up an oar for the first time, Schroeder won gold in the eight at the 2002 Under 23 World Regatta.He went on to make his first senior national team the next summer and then earned a spot on the 2004 Olympic Team in the men's four, finishing 10th in Athens.
After taking time off following the Games to begin his graduate studies, Schroeder switched to sculling and has quickly become one of the nation's best, representing the U.S. in the single at the 2006 FISA World Championships.
"I am set on sculling.I need the flexibility of training on my own," said Schroeder, who finished 12th in the single at his first world championships."I am looking forward to racing season and working toward our goal for success in sculling in Beijing in 2008.I would very much like to be a part of achieving that."
Schroeder receives his workout schedules electronically from National Team Sculling Coach Kris Korzeniowski as part of his daily routine.
"I was hoping to use this event as a benchmark to check the pace and efficiency of my training schedule," Schroeder said.
Schroeder is currently training with a doubles partner in preparation for his entry in the second selection regatta on April 27.Just in time for spinach harvest!
