Dan Dreibelbis

Dan Dreibelbis is an established healthcare professional with over 7 years of experience within the Academic Medical Center Realm. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health Policy and Administration and Minor in Labor Employment and Relations from Pennsylvania State University. After graduation, Mr. Dreibelbis started his career in healthcare with Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (currently Penn State Health) in their Cardiology Outpatient site as a Medical Office Associate. Given his dedication and commitment to the patients he served, he became an Medical Office Supervisor for Penn State Health’s Third Street Family Practice in downtown Harrisburg. This family practice provided care for the underserved community and housed specialties, and subspecialties of Family Medicine such as: Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, Pediatric Surgery, Infectious Disease and Travel Clinic, Suboxone and Addiction Clinic, Family Practice Obstetrics, and Transforming Lives of Children Clinic. After almost three years with the Third Street Practice, Mr. Dreibelbis joined UPMC as an Office Manager of their Heart and Vascular Institute clinic in Chambersburg, PA. After almost a year with UPMC, he assisted in designing a new building for the clinic off of Walker Road in Chambersburg. As opportunities arose Mr. Dreibelbis joined us here at Pennsylvania Medical Society as a Healthcare Operations Specialist in Health Information and Technology (HIT). Although Mr. Dreibelbis specializes in HIT he is well versed with general practice operations and is more than willing to go above and beyond for all of our members here at PAMED even if he doesn’t have the answer right in front of him.
