THEF Member Profile
Meet Jessica Landin, Your 2016 THEF President

Describe your current role in the local healthcare market.

I’m 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.

How long have you been an ACHE/THEF member and why did you join?  

I’ve 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!

What value have you gotten out of your membership?  

I 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 represented.

Do you have any advice for early careerists? 

Attend 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.

What are the ACHE/THEF activities you are committed to in 2016? 

In 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.

The member profile page is a new addition to the THEF Newsletter. If you, or someone you know, would like to share how ACHE/THEF has made a difference in your career, please contact Joyce Harper, Communications Co-Chair at jharper13@embarqmail.com.
