Innovation Digest – June 2023 Vol. 2

I created Momentum Health Strategies as a vehicle for contributing my passion for patient engagement and organizational excellence. Ten years on, I’ve had the privilege to work with many organizations – large and small – with a similar fire for making change happen and amplifying the voice and expertise of people with lived experience. The last five plus years I’ve been active in the value conversation in the U.S., working to elevate the participation and leadership of patient communities in improving research, health technology assessment and policy that addresses value. So, it seems like the next logical evolution in my career is to focus on global impact and fostering change. As of August 14, I’ll be taking the helm of the International Consortium for Health Care Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM). At its heart, this revered organization asks the right questions: what health outcomes matter to patients and how do we facilitate the systematic, sustained measurement to ensure those outcomes are achieved?  I look forward to this next challenge.

Momentum Health Strategies will remain part of my voice, and please call on me if our expertise and energy can be useful to your efforts. I’ve elected to take a break from publishing this digest every two weeks – at least for now – as I find my global community and identify how I may be of service. Thanks for your ongoing support and kinship. Let’s keep the conversation going in other forums. You can find me on LinkedIn most days.  Be well!
