MAP Health Management appoints new VP to assist in growing its treatment provider partnerships
July 9, 2018, Austin, TX - MAP Health Management announced today the recent hiring of Ms. Donna Pellegrino as Vice President of Provider Network Development. Donna is based in Massachusetts and is responsible for growing MAP’s payer-driven partnerships with addiction treatment providers and other organizations primarily in the northeastern region of the United States. MAP has made significant progress contracting with health insurance plans throughout the country to deliver its tech-enabled and scalable peer recovery support services and outcomes tracking for individuals and families seeking long-term recovery from addiction.
With 25 years of professional healthcare experience, including over 3 years most recently at Spectrum Health Systems, Donna has established herself as one of New England’s top leaders in affecting organizational change to more effectively and efficiently serve both clients and the businesses with which she is involved. With an educational background that includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Boston University and a Masters in Community Health from New England College, Donna has been involved in virtually every aspect of health care, from direct clinical work to leading major corporations in business development. In 2016, Donna was tapped to host her own radio talk show, “Airing Addiction”, and subsequently developed Recovery through Fitness, another nationwide program aimed at re-establishing those suffering with substance use disorder, back into their communities, reducing stigma, and raising awareness. Donna will leverage her extensive experience and relationships in the addiction treatment space to facilitate long-term strategic partnerships with both addiction treatment facilities and hospital systems to provide post-discharge peer recovery support to patients after they leave the acute provider’s care. Through delivery of peer recovery support services, MAP also collects and structures clinical treatment outcomes data which is being utilized by health insurance plans to inform value-based care and other alternative payment models in the addiction treatment field.
“MAP is very excited to have Donna onboard. Donna’s drive, experience and relationships will be invaluable in expanding the delivery of MAP’s much needed peer recovery support services for individuals and families seeking long-term recovery from addiction.” Said Jared Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MAP.
