MARCH 20, 2023

The past few years have been shaped by uncertainty in healthcare. Organizations working to respond to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have encountered new concerns. For those still relatively early in their career, any trials can be especially destabilizing. 

But this year’s honorees for Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Emerging Leaders have risen to the challenge. Members of the class of 2023, all of whom are age 40 or younger, have made their mark by mentoring their peers and launching innovative ventures. Some have addressed social determinants of health in their communities, created programs aimed at connecting patients with care or taken the reins to improve quality scores at their organizations. 

Others have worked to address burnout among colleagues or to net savings for their companies through imaginative process overhauls. At Modern Healthcare, we’re on the lookout for those on the cutting edge. The rising stars of the class of 2023 fit the bill: They inspire excitement about the future of the industry.

Whitney Moyer, 35

Vice President of Long Term Services and Supports,

Commonwealth Care Alliance

After several years advocating on behalf of vulnerable individuals requiring complex care, Moyer joined the Boston-based integrated care system in 2021. Since then, she has helped foster CCA’s hospital-to-home program, which works with four high-volume hospitals to assess CCA members for unmet medical, behavioral and social needs. Moyer also led the development of a new health and functional assessment to better determine each patient’s eligibility for 14 different services. The organization now uses the tool immediately upon member enrollment.
