Seth Frazier brings more than three decades of value-based care and consulting leadership experience across the provider, payer and digital health landscapes
Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, a multidisciplinary, integrated professional services firm, today announced the addition of Seth Frazier to the Firm’s Washington, D.C. office as a managing director with Manatt Health. A highly respected health system and startup C-suite executive with deep experience in value-based contracting, strategic transformation and partnerships, Frazier has a proven track record of translating innovation into market-leading clinical and business outcomes for prominent health care organizations across the country.
“Seth’s background as a consultant, hospital leader and startup executive makes him a natural addition to our nationally recognized Manatt Health team, which is similarly composed of former public and private executives and government leaders,” said Donna L. Wilson, CEO and Managing Partner of Manatt. “His experience across these corners of health care will resonate with many of our clients, especially as they seek to implement various mission-critical initiatives that ultimately improve access to and the affordability of care.”
Throughout his career, Frazier’s focus has been on innovation, transformation and strategy, where he has led teams at both startups and premier health systems. At Manatt, he advises a diverse range of stakeholders—including pediatric hospitals, emerging digital health companies, academic medical centers and integrated health systems—on driving strategic transformation and advancing value-based care. He is also known as a pioneer in provider-sponsored risk and globally capitated pediatric care. He has additionally led system strategy, partnerships and business development for national innovators.
“As health care organizations continue to prioritize value-based care, we have been purposely building out our broader capabilities to support providers, payers and other stakeholders drive innovation in this space,” said Manatt Health Leader Bill Bernstein. “Seth’s reputation in value-based contracting is unparalleled, and he is known throughout the industry as a subject matter authority, so we’re thrilled to welcome him as the latest addition to our multilayered legal, strategic, policy and business consulting team.”
Prior to joining Manatt, Frazier served as chief business officer for a leading population- and value-based substance use disorder and mental health provider, where he drove growth and helped expand its population health model. Before that, he led business development for a patient experience software platform to better connect patients, clinicians and caregivers. Frazier has also held chief strategy officer and chief transformation officer roles for multibillion-dollar health systems with integrated health plans, a preeminent children’s hospital and a publicly traded population health infrastructure company.
“Having worked with Manatt in the past, both as a collaborative partner and as a client, I have long admired the Firm’s unique approach to client service and its commitment to improving access to care within the industry,” said Frazier. “Manatt stands out in the market with its integrated legal and consulting offerings and incredibly talented group of professionals, so I look forward to joining this team and harnessing my varied background to develop cutting-edge solutions for its impressive suite of clients.”
Frazier is the latest addition to Manatt Health’s steadily growing legal and business consulting team, which includes recent arrivals Eric Gold, Thomas (Tom) Robertson, Edo Banach, Julia E. Smith, Nicholas (Nick) Bath Jr., Shelli Silver, Dr. Troyen (Troy) A. Brennan and Tracy A. Massel.
Frazier earned his M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania as a Kaiser Fellow and Kaiser Award Winner and his B.A. in economics (honors) from Haverford College.
