Currnt Solutions Partner

Tir Health Advisors consults in 3 areas: strategy and operationalizing healthy longevity/aging programs and initiatives, patient engagement and ensuring patient voice in design and transformation, and helping individuals and organizations navigate the healthcare system in order to provide their services in new areas beyond their current capabilities.
I can see Convetit as an opportunity to work together when a client needs more indepth information on a specific strategy being developed on their behalf. The input of experts across disciplines is where I see Convetit's value.

Profile

Summary

Starting with the belief that happiness starts with health, I have devoted myself to optimizing heath and healthcare delivery for all.

I am a creative and innovative healthcare strategist and thought leader with a keen interest in empowering providers, patients and caregivers to take charge of their health. This includes better communication between healthcare providers, payers, the life sciences, communities, and patients/caregivers; ensuring access to healthcare all over the world; and, importantly, the use of data and research to advance public health world-wide.

I’ve long strived to make a difference; to impact at least one person. As I progressed through life I have worked in diverse healthcare settings each providing insights that led me to focus my efforts on addressing aging. Working in hospitals, I learned about healthcare settings where people are most vulnerable. At Oxford Health Plans, we pioneered a new way to reimburse healthcare that put focus on quality outcomes. While at Pfizer, I was able to explore various topics in healthcare and science as featured blogger for Think Science Now and helped advance their Center of Excellence on Active and Healthy Aging creating a strategy and building the aging and technology workstream. It became clear to me that my reach would be more impactful outside of a large organization. I am also an artist.

My mission is to have an impact by transforming health and aging & learn to achieve balance and health in my own life as I age. In launching a consulting company, I achieve this by helping clients with creative strategies, making connections to build relationships & communities and using my art to spread the word.

My strengths
- Ability to advance an organization’s strategies
- Networking, fostering relationships
- Connecting science to real world applications

Specialties: patient advocacy, active & healthy aging, aging & tech, use of health info = outcomes, strategic communications, innovation, leadership

Experience

Chief Content Officer

Proximity Health Solutions

February 2019 - Present

Proximity Health Solutions (PHS) leveraging community access to recruit, educate and enroll patients to help clients achieve clinical trial endpoint goals. I've delved into grass roots, local recruitment as I really do believe that a new and refreshed approach to engaging individuals where they live, educating them, will make a real difference for clinical trial effectiveness.

Senior Advisor Strategy

Personal Connected Health Alliance

May 2017 - Present

Currently, I'm helping design & implement a new business model that includes focused research & thought leadership in Blockchain, Aging & Technology, Digital Therapeutics, and Innovation Acceleration.
Previously, I helped create and continue to advance a strategy for PCHAlliance in 4 areas of aging & technology: health & wellness at all ages, healthy communities, extending independence, and caregiving/chronic disease management. A key accomplishment was an Aging & Technology workshop during HIMSS18 conference that showcased thought leaders and innovative solutions. It was standing room only.
