Farewell to Dr. Tom Janus
It has been such an honor and a privilege to serve as Chairperson of the
Alliance for the past 7 years. The Alliance has made significant strides
in transforming healthcare delivery in our community. I am proud to have
been part of this evolutionary process. Our quality scores have improved
in our contracted plans while simultaneously reducing the spend to deliver
care by over 30 million dollars. Furthermore we have distributed back
to the providers an attractive performance distribution for the work performed
in each of our years of operation.
Effective last month, I have resigned as Chairperson of the Alliance in
order to pursue a new and exciting role as Chief Medical Officer for MWHP
Medicare Advantage program. I hope to continue our pursuit of achieving
Population Health management in this new position and strive to provide
the most attractive MA program possible for our Medicare population.
With Dr. Pat McManus assuming the position of Chairperson, I know we all
feel confident the Alliance will continue to prosper, and his leadership
will ensure the Alliance adheres to its mission. I encourage all members
to work towards making this a successful organization. Healthcare reimbursement
is evolving almost as rapidly as the technology to deliver healthcare.
Continued success for the Alliance is now more than ever dependent upon
high levels of engagement from our membership.
Once again, I would like to thank all of you for giving me such a wonderful
opportunity to improve the way we care for patients in our community.
It is, after all, why we entered the profession.
Tom Janus, DO
