Karma Bass, MPH, FACHE (Plenary session Tuesday June 27, 1:15-2:30 p.m.)
Over her 20-year career, Karma Bass has been a sought-after speaker, facilitator, and consultant with deep knowledge and experience in governance, strategic planning, philanthropy, quality oversight, health care policy, and board effectiveness.
Before founding Via Healthcare Consulting, she worked with ACCORD LIMITED, a Chicago-based consulting firm serving clients nationwide with their strategic planning, governance, speaking and board retreats. She spent two years as president and CEO of Alliance Healthcare Foundation in San Diego, California where she reported to an independent, eleven-person not-for-profit board.
Notably, Ms. Bass spent 10 years at The Governance Institute holding various positions including Vice President, Membership Services and Director of Research & Publications. During her time at The Governance Institute, she oversaw the prestigious biennial hospital governance practices survey tracking trends in US hospitals and health systems.
During three years at the Hospital Council of San Diego and Imperial Counties, she facilitated the first-ever collaborative community health needs assessment for San Diego’s 32 hospitals, responding to the then-newly-implemented California Hospital Community Benefit law. Her experience gives her a uniquely valuable perspective as a consultant to hospital and health systems boards today.
Ms. Bass is board-certified in healthcare management and holds a master’s degree in public health with a focus in health services administration from San Diego State University. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, San Diego. She lives in Carlsbad, California with her husband and two children.
Dr. Pritpal S Tamber (Plenary session Wednesday June 28, 9:45-10:45 a.m.)
Dr. Pritpal S Tamber is the Co-Founder and CEO of Bridging Health & Community, a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to transforming how we approach health so that it goes beyond health care and public health to include fostering the ‘agency’ of a community – its ability to make purposeful choices.
Dr. Tamber the former Physician Editor of TEDMED, TED’s dedicated health event. In that role, he reviewed over 1600 innovations and helped shape the 40 talks that made it into the 2013 program. It was through that role that he became convinced that current efforts in health innovation will fail to meaningfully impact population health or health equity.
In response, he founded the Creating Health Collaborative, an international group of innovators exploring health from the perspective of people and communities. Their work adopts a broader understanding of health to encompass things like safety, physical functioning, financial security, emotional security, and nourishing relationships.
The Collaborative’s membership includes individuals from Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, the California Endowment, FSG, HealthPartners, MIT, the Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund, ISAIAH, the Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund and the Democracy Collaborative.
Common to all of their innovations is the key insight that risk factors alone cannot explain why people are healthy or sick. The missing link is whether people have a sense of control over their lives, something that requires individuals and communities to have ‘agency’.
The Collaborative is now part of Dr. Tamber’s Seattle-based nonprofit, Bridging Health & Community, which takes a radical approach to ‘health equity’ and the ‘social determinants of health’. It explores how health systems can intentionally foster a community’s ‘agency’ so as to collectively agree priorities and derive, implement and evaluate solutions.
Together with his Co-Founder, Dr. Bridget B Kelly, formerly of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), they have described 12 principles to fostering agency to improve health. They work with health care, public health and philanthropy to radically transform how they approach a community’s health.
Dr. Tamber is the former Medical Director of Map of Medicine, a company that produces ‘clinical pathways’ to improve the flow of patients through health care systems. He’s also the former Editorial Director for Medicine for BioMed Central, the company that disrupted academic publishing by making open access commercially sustainable. He started his career as an editor at the BMJ.
