San Francisco, CA – HealthTech 4 Medicaid (HT4M) recently announced that Adimika Arthur has assumed the role of Acting Executive Director.
HT4M is a nascent national nonprofit dedicated to increasing the rate of innovation in the Medicaid space. The group has a founding member class of more than 40 CEOs, each of whom is leading a venture-backed company currently working to innovate the health care experience of the more than 75 million people enrolled in Medicaid. The group is also advised by an Expert Council made up of some of the highest-profile names in the health care industry.
"Adimika is an experienced healthcare leader and patient activist who has been instrumental in turning HT4M from an idea to a reality," said Leah Sparks, Co-Chair of HT4M. "Her leadership is exactly what HT4M needs as we begin to implement our programming and form partnerships that will bring real, radical innovation to a program that is both critically needed and in critical need."
Mrs. Arthur has more than twenty years of experience in the industry, including as a clinical epidemiologist in county-level leadership, an executive in integrated hospital delivery systems, and author of the 2005 California Medicaid 1115 waiver to expand coverage in Alameda County (7th largest county in CA).
Adimika has spent her career dedicated to the Medicaid population, most recently serving as the Director of Clinical Operations at Sutter Health. She has also previously served as a Service Line Director at the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center/UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital and Alameda County Medical Center, both public hospitals in California. She also runs a management consultancy company focusing on health system clients. She has an MPH from the University of Washington, and a BS from Clark Atlanta University.
