Alliant Health Solutions to receive NMF’s public service award
Dennis White, MSIT, DHA, the president and CEO of Alliant Health Solutions, Inc., will receive the 2018 National Medical Fellowships’ (NMF) Public Service Award on behalf of Alliant Health Solutions during an ‘Atlanta Champions of Health Awards Gala’ that will take place at The Commerce Club in Atlanta on Monday, October 29.
The award “recognizes organizations that champion health care parity for physicians and patients.”
NMF is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to “increasing the number of underrepresented, minority physicians and other medical professionals to improve access to quality health care in underserved communities.”
White says that, “Receiving this award is great honor and a truly humbling experience.”
He also notes that, “Since 1946, more than 30,000 medical students and physicians from underrepresented groups have received scholarships from NMF, including Dr. Adrienne Mims, Alliant’s vice president and chief medical officer. Her clinical guidance and expertise have been critical to our organization and in ensuring health care quality and access for Medicare beneficiaries in Georgia and North Carolina.”
White stresses that, “A vital part of our work at Alliant is addressing disparities in health care. To do this, we build and lead with peer review boards and patient advisory boards. They help guide our quality improvement efforts, making it critical that participants are representative of the populations and providers we serve.”
He adds that, “Alliant delivers education to minority health care professionals to enhance their ability to be effective in improving the quality of care they provide. And we support local organizations that represent the interests of minority physicians and their patients, including the Georgia State Medical Association and the Atlanta Medical Association.”
White is encouraging physicians and allied health care stakeholders to make plans to attend the gala.
