Dr. Rhonda Medows
CEO, Ayin Health Solutions; president of population health, Providence
Medows, who has been credited in the past with launching innovative population health programs, was at the forefront of bringing unique approaches to the pandemic. For instance, she led efforts early in the crisis to assess how COVID-19 would accelerate disparities in community health resources. She spearheaded a five-point plan at Providence that included using data to drive decision-making. And she helped spur Providence to invest $50 million to help further its COVID-19 community programs.
