Tell us more about your role and day-to-day activities at Cambia Health Solutions.

As the Senior Vice President of Corporate Accountability and Performance, I oversee a number of key areas, including ethics and compliance, and work with the leaders over those areas to ensure that we have effective programs in place, so that we can deliver on our promises around consumer-focused health care.  I have been with Cambia for 19 years.

Can you talk more about the company’s “Values, Ethics and Compliance” program? 

Values: We believe that how we do business is every bit of important of what we do, we are completely values-based company and that expresses itself in a number of ways particularly with regard for ethics and compliance. Both elements play an integral part for our ability to create a focused and sustainable health care system at Cambia.

How does leadership at Cambia “set the tone at the top”?

Our Board Chairman Mack Hogans was recently recognized with the Modern Healthcare Excellence in Governance award in part because of his commitment to setting a strong tone at the top with the Board of Directors. The Board has very open and transparent conversations with the management team, it’s a collaborative, open process.
