As Featured In

Scott will help you improve and simplify your health care experience.

As a health care executive that lives a healthy lifestyle and still relies on the medical system, Scott Foster was led to the inspiration that if he can't live doctor (and medical bill) free then most other organizations can’t either. Scott became engrossed with how expensive, low-value health care is encouraged over more effective, evidenced-based prevention. He identified patterns and created systematic takeaways that organizations of all types can easily implement. 

Scott Foster is the founder & CEO of Wellco™, an award-winning population health strategies firm since 1996. He helps leaders measurably improve health care engagement and outcomes. Scott's clients are leaders at leading brands including AT&T, Home Depot, Chrysler, Hitachi and Ascension Health.

Rave Reviews for Scott's Programs...

Scott Foster’s presentation to our annual WellOK coalition meeting was inspiring, energetic and enlightening. Scott drove home the points on population health in a witty and entertaining talk. I enthusiastically recommend him as a speaker.

Stan Schwartz, MD CEO, WellOK, The Northeastern Oklahoma Business Coalition on Health

Scott was the keynote speaker at FABOH’s Wellness Conference and then again at FABOH’s Employer Health Summit. Scott was thorough and precise in the preparation of his content, including multiple calls to discuss topic and coordination with the other presenters. His actual presentation was outstanding both times. He employs unique techniques that engage and involve the audience.
