|Meet Jessica Landin, Your 2016 THEF President|
Describe your current role in the local healthcare market.
currently the Senior Director of Market Operations for Evolent Health, serving
as the senior director of operations for WakeMed Community Care, which is an
Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in Wake County. In this role, I help drive
operational performance of the ACO, and manage partnerships and collaborations
with payers, community resources and high value specialists to further the
ACO’s goals of improving quality and value of healthcare in the community.
long have you been an ACHE/THEF member and why did you join?
been a member for about six years. My former boss, who is an FACHE, encouraged
me to join and I was excited to have the opportunity to plug into what is
happening in the local market. I wish I had joined sooner!
value have you gotten out of your membership?
like being able to meet and share ideas with other local healthcare
professionals, and to continually learn through the continuing education
opportunities THEF provides. Many of us are working on the same types of issues
and challenges to improve how healthcare is operationalized and delivered, and
THEF is a platform for collaboration. We are fortunate that our chapter has a
diverse membership, representing all segments of the industry - from
traditional hospital administration to academia, research, consulting, pharma,
payers, government, etc., so there are a lot of ideas and perspectives
you have any advice for early careerists?
THEF events and read the ACHE publications that come with your membership! Get
involved in THEF and other relevant professional organizations. At work, own
the opportunities you are given, no matter how small they may seem at the time.
are the ACHE/THEF activities you are committed to in 2016?
addition to attending the local THEF events, I’m also looking
forward to attending Congress in March in Chicago, and studying for the Board
of Governors Exam (with past THEF president Carol Dorn Sanders!) in 2016.
