Steven R. Carson, MHA, BSN, RN, Senior Vice President of Population Health for Temple University Health System, and CEO of Temple Center for Population Health, LLC, and the Temple Center for Population Health were honored with the “Population Health Leader” Award at the Acenda Institute of Health Innovation’s (AIHI) inaugural “Momentum Awards” on April 19. The Momentum Awards recognize individuals and organizations who are paving the way for the future of behavioral health care delivery.
Carson and the Temple Center for Population Health were recognized for their innovative care models and partnerships to support population health, including an initiative they implemented with local stakeholders called Housing Smart which connects homeless individuals to resources and supports rather than utilizing the Emergency Department. The team is also working in support of value-based care models, cooperating with not only local stakeholders, but regional and national partners to further strong population health models.
Launched in 2021 by Acenda Integrated Health, AIHI integrates insights from across Health & Human Services to advance the behavioral health sectors in the areas of Innovation, Population Health, Policy & Advocacy and Research.
“As the needs of our communities have shifted in unprecedented ways over the last few years, our delivery system needs to continue to change as well,” said Melissa Fox, MHA, FACMPE, FACHE, Chief Operating Officer, Acenda Integrated Health. “The Momentum Awards shine a light on those who are helping forge the path within our sector, and whose passion, commitment and fortitude are an inspiration to others.”
