SVP, Strategic Initiatives, AIDS Foundation of Chicago
Kathye Gorosh, MBA, is currently Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at the AIDS Foundation of Chicago. Over the past five years she has been responsible for generating new revenue from diverse sources and leads the development of AFC’s business strategies as the health care service delivery system transforms due to health reform and managed care. She focuses on managed care networks, coordination of care, integration of services, and information and data management. This involves strategically engaging health plans by presenting a value-add business case and negotiating contracts in addition to providing trainings for the community provider network related to “readiness” and managing change. These new contractual relationships address value driven methodologies to maintain and improve quality of care focusing on the Triple Aim to impact care coordination, the HIV treatment cascade and the housing for the homeless care continuum.
As an Independent Consultant, including HHS/SAMHSA/HRSA/HAB, she has provided technical assistance for a range of hospitals, academic and community-based agencies – including best practices, quality improvement, diagnostic site visits, grant reviews, capacity building, organizational development and program management.
Ms. Gorosh has worked in the HIV, public health and behavioral health fields. She has worked at a local health department, been in multiple leadership roles in the American Public Health Association, and served on various national, state and local committees over the years. She has extensive experience in public health and chronic diseases at the systems level which has deepened due to the many changes and challenges to the field – especially health disparities in vulnerable and underserved populations.
