WHO WE ARE
DR. MICHAEL LE CO-FOUNDER, CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER
“I grew up watching my father practice small town medicine, carrying a black bag, and doing home visits, and I loved the concept of bringing care to the sickest patients. At Landmark, I get to share this passion for home-based medicine with a top caliber team.”
Dr. Le is the Chief Medical Officer of Landmark.
Prior to joining Landmark, Dr. Le served as chief medical officer of Fidelis SeniorCare, a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan, where he designed and implemented an innovative care model for high-acuity dual eligibles. Through Dr. Le’s clinical delivery model, Fidelis reduced hospital utilization by 46% and ER utilization by over 80% when compared with comparable high-risk populations. The model also achieved a 30-day all-cause readmissions rate of 6.3% for a high-risk population of dual eligibles. Dr. Le’s innovative model of care was an instrumental component of Fidelis’ recent selection as a health plan awardee in the Michigan Duals Demonstration Project.
Prior to Fidelis, Dr. Le served as senior medical officer at CareMore, a Medicare Advantage plan, where he was also a practicing Extensivist. At CareMore, Dr. Le ran all high-risk clinical programs, including the High-Risk Clinic, Social Worker Intervention Team, Palliative Care and Hospice Program, and the House Call Program. He also held enterprise-wide accountability for care management and clinical training and education.
Prior to CareMore, Dr. Le was regional lead hospitalist at HealthCare Partners, a risk-bearing medical group, where he oversaw a 20% reduction in hospital bed days in his region. Dr. Le was the physician lead for HealthCare Partners’ high-risk Ambulatory Case Management program, which identified a subset of high-risk patients and managed them aggressively through a tailored and high-intensity home and office visit intervention program.
In his free time, Dr. Le enjoys playing tennis, as he played at the collegiate level. His proudest accomplishment is his family: his wife, Tita, a Deputy Attorney General for the State of California, and their two beautiful daughters, Isabella and Victoria.
Dr. Le received his Bachelor of Science at the University of California, Riverside, and his M.D. at the University of California, Los Angeles. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Cedars-Sinai. He also completed a fellowship from the Institute for Physician Leadership at the University of California, San Francisco.
