Growth Leadership for the Nation’s Only Multi-Stakeholder Association Dedicated Solely to Population Health
Washington, D.C. — Population Health Alliance (PHA) announces today that it is investing in the Association’s growth with newly appointed Executive Director Thomas L. Johnson. Thomas comes to us with highly relevant executive leadership experience, including more than eight years at the Medicaid Health Plans of America where he led the organization to achieve 650 percent growth. He holds a BA, Political Science from Tufts University and a JD, Law from Howard University. Thomas began working with PHA on April 1 and will assume the full-time role on May 3.
Population health management is at the center of the sweeping shift to value-based care, holistic consumer centric care, and the march to health equity for all. Over the last two decades of advocacy, network building, quality, research, and education, PHA has led a network of Corporate members and partners in raising the profile of population health improvement models including health and wellness, chronic care management, social determinants of health, and health equity as key components of health care transformation. “There is no better time in the history of PHA to bring on such an experienced and committed leader as Thomas Johnson. With our BOD commissioned strategic plan and newly appointed leadership, PHA is poised to reach new heights in both growth of our membership and impact from far reaching initiatives,” said Rose Maljanian, Board Chair Emeritus for the Population Health Alliance.
PHA as the premier association for population health, works diligently on behalf of its members to shine a spotlight on their important work and advocate for, and contribute to, shaping policies that prioritize the health and wellbeing of individuals in our populations through:
- Reducing barriers to high-value workplace health and wellness benefits and programs for employees
- Ensuring that all individuals have stable access to affordable choices in selecting their health benefits
- Encouraging community-based efforts and supporting programs that address medical and social determinants to promote health and wellbeing in vulnerable populations
- Supporting individuals’ active engagement with their care teams and limiting non-care related burdens and distractions for both patients and providers
- Emphasizing research and quality in the delivery of health and wellness benefits and programs to individuals
- Continuously introducing innovative solutions to create positive experiences and outcomes for all individuals
PHA additionally focuses on quality and research priorities that advance value-based care as a lever under the umbrella of population health management, optimizes consumer engagement and experience, and takes action on social determinants of health to improve outcomes and achieve health equity.
“I am honored and humbled to take on this role with PHA” said Mr. Johnson. “The importance of bringing together stakeholders critical to maximize population health efforts cannot be understated, as we look to fully understand the needs of populations in specific health care systems. I look forward to make a significant contribution to that effort.”
