Catherine Turbett, MHA – Steward Health Care Network
Catherine Turbett, MHA is the executive director for national performance operations at Steward Health Care Network.
Catherine started her healthcare career in 2008 as a Surgical Coordinator and Administrative Project Manager for an OB-GYN practice, then took on practice management roles of increasing responsibility before joining Steward Health Care Network in 2014 as the Manager of Practice Performance. SHCN is one of the largest accountable care organizations in the country, with more than 1,300,000 covered lives. At SHCN, Catherine was promoted rapidly and became the Executive Director of National Performance Operations in 2018.
Catherine is responsible for all strategic planning, performance, and operations for the national ACO’s value based contracts and health plans, including risk adjustment, quality, patient and member experience, and provider enrollment and credentialing activities. She leads a team of 290 people across 10 states.
Catherine champions collaborative efforts between provider groups, hospitals, managed care administrators, and IT teams to improve value based care outcomes. At HIMSS18, she presented on her team’s innovative work around risk adjustment. By analyzing structured and unstructured clinical data from over 80 EHRs, they were able to find suspected risk documentation gaps. Subsequently, SHCN pushed that information to the point of care so it could be reviewed by providers during patient appointments. This work ultimately yielded a 3% improvement in their Commercial risk score and a greater clinical focus on patients with chronic conditions.
