Get to Know Dr. Elana Schrader

Author: Sonya Ferris, Enterprise Communications

She grew up with an outstanding role model: a physician father utterly devoted to serving his patients, with an equally impressive command of his subject matter. From watching his example, Elana Schrader, M.D., Senior Vice President, Health Care Services and President, GuideWell Health, realized at a young age that fulfillment comes from serving others—and knowledge creates the opportunity to do so.

She’s been living by that motto ever since.

In her current role at GuideWell, Elana leads the health care delivery business for the enterprise. She is also responsible for the development of the overarching clinical strategy for Florida Blue and leading clinical activities including care and quality management, pharmacy, health promotions and wellness, care partners and vendors and a new area focused on behavioral health.
