ART JONES, M.D. | Principal, Health Management Associates
Art has more than 25 years of experience as a founding physician and CEO at a large Community Health Center in Chicago. Dr. Jones helped establish it as a model managed care organization that served its Medicaid, Medicare and commercial population under a near global capitation payment system since the early 1990’s. Dr. Jones was one of the founders and currently serves part time as the Chief Medical Officer of Medical Home Network (MHN), a foundation funded demonstration project to improve health status of 170,000 Southside Chicago area Medicaid clients by integrating the efforts of six hospital systems and six Federally Qualified Health Care Clinics (FQHCs). He explores new delivery models made possible by the change from strict reimbursement only for face to face medical provider encounters to one that also rewards for successful population management.
Judith Gethner | Executive Director, Illinois Partners for Human Service
Judith is the Executive Director of Illinois Partners for Human Service. She has an expansive, successful career in the areas of policy and procedure development, advocacy, and community organizing. Since her hiring, she has grown the statewide coalition from a confederation of 70 funders and providers to a formidable body of over 700 organizations representing every legislative district in Illinois. She holds a B.S. from Northern Illinois University and an M.A. from Northeastern Illinois University.
KIM Nygaard | On-Site DIRECTOR, Countryside Association for People with Disabilities
