At a critical time in U.S. health policy, Ann directs The Collaborative’s policy agenda, working across a diverse stakeholder group of more than 70 executive member organizations to advance an effective and efficient health care system built on the strong foundation of primary care and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH). The Collaborative’s membership includes a broad group of public and private organizations, including payers, providers, consumer/patient organizations and other non-profits and leading corporations dedicated to transforming health care. It achieves its mission through the combined work of its executive members, Stakeholder Centers, clinicians and thought leaders focused on the key issues of delivery reform, payment reform, and patient engagement, to drive health system transformation.
Ann has dedicated her entire career to advancing the quality of U.S. health and health care. She has more than 20 plus years of experience, including senior-level policy, research, and communications roles at prestigious national not-for-profit organizations. Prior to leading The Collaborative, she served as Vice President of Public Affairs for the National Quality Forum where she increased the visibility and influence of NQF on Capitol Hill and across the country while also leading efforts to engage NQF members on a number of timely policy issues.
Before working at NQF, Ann held high-profile policy, research, and public affairs roles at the American Board of Internal Medicine, the Institute of Medicine (now the National Academy of Medicine), and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). In these roles, she worked with others to pioneer research to help the field and the public understand the extent of the U.S. health care quality problem (Institute of Medicine), published some of the first-ever quality ratings bringing needed transparency to health care (NCQA), and helped Congress and other policymakers to understand and support the use of high-quality measures to drive improvements in care (National Quality Forum).
