Vice President, Federal Health Strategy
As Vice President of Federal Health Strategy, Lisa Tompkins-Brown drives the design, planning, and execution of population health and public health technology initiatives funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Defense Health Agency (DHA); and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Lisa has more than 25 years of health care and business management experience supporting over 20 federal, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations in health information technology, health care quality and policy, large-scale acquisitions, and strategy. In her previous role with MITRE, Lisa managed projects valued at $30 million in support of the CMS Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ), including Quality Improvement Organizations, End-Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Programs, and the Quality Payment Program (QPP). She established and led strategic direction and program delivery for a $40 million program supporting VA.
Lisa has been central to creating partnerships between government agencies, health systems, and community organizations that drive system change, from easing the burden clinicians face in conducting business transactions to establishing data-sharing agreements between federal agencies to improve services for TRICARE beneficiaries.
As a recognized expert, Lisa for many years served as an adjunct professor at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, teaching courses in leadership and strategy, and health informatics. She is a regular speaker at events hosted by HIMSS, Veterans Health Administration, the National Medical Association, and other leading conveners of health experts. In May 2015, the U.S. Navy named Lisa an honorary member of the Medical Service Corp as an Ensign with full rights and responsibilities, an honor rarely given to civilians. Lisa holds a B.S. in biology and M.S. degrees in Healthcare Administration and Business Administration.
