Christiana Care President and CEO Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH, was honored among the “Top 25 Women in Healthcare” at Modern Healthcare’s Women Leaders in Healthcare conference, held in Chicago, Illinois, from July 31 to August 1.
Dr. Nevin was selected from a pool of hundreds of nominations of female health care leaders across the country. This recognition program honors the top women health care executives who are influencing health care policy and delivery models and supporting gender equity in leadership. A panel of judges and top editors at Modern Healthcare selected the honorees.
Under Dr. Nevin’s leadership, Christiana Care is becoming more than a health system that delivers care: It is becoming a system that impacts health. Christiana Care partners with its caregivers, patients and neighbors to achieve personal health goals and create healthier communities.
“One of my priorities is to embrace innovative care and implement services our neighbors will value for the next 100 years,” said Dr. Nevin in her acceptance speech. “We are taking bold steps to disrupt health care as we know it.”
Dr. Nevin was honored for her pioneering work in creating innovative systems of patient-centered care, while exceeding financial and quality goals.
She was recognized for her expansion of patient access and virtual care; her internal efforts to focus on health and wellness, including the creation of the Center for Provider Wellbeing to help address physician burnout; and for the development and implementation of Carelink CareNow, a data-driven care coordination platform that integrates medical and behavioral health data in real time.
Carelink CareNow earned the John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award, the nation’s preeminent recognition for quality and safety in health care.
“I believe one of the most important attributes of a good leader is continuous learning,” said Dr. Nevin during the conference. “When we are open and receptive to what we can learn from the people around us, we grow and become more effective as leaders—and as human beings.”
Dr. Nevin also was recognized for her role as a community leader.
She is a founding member of the eBrightHealth ACO accountable care organization, an alliance of more than 1,200 primary and specialty care clinicians from four regional health systems, private practices and two federally qualified health centers throughout Delaware that aims to increase access to care, improve quality of life and reduce health care spending.
She serves as a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s Economic and Community Advisory Council and a board member for the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.
