In the policy realm, he has authored numerous white papers and testified before Congress, the Illinois legislature and the Federal Trade Commission. He is also co-principal investigator on a research grant examining leading-edge patient-centered practices by ACOs.

Prior to starting his own firm, Millenson was a principal in the health-care practice of a major human resources consulting firm. Before that, he was a health-care reporter for the Chicago Tribune, where he was nominated three times for a Pulitzer Prize.
