BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — For the third year in a row, HealthPartners President and CEO Andrea Walsh was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.

The annual recognition program honors leaders in health care who are deemed by their peers and senior editors of Modern Healthcare to be the most influential people in leadership and impact in the industry. They represent a range of sectors across the health care industry including care delivery, insurance, policy and administration.

“It's such an honor to be named among this group of leaders,” Walsh said. “I share this recognition with our team of 26,000 colleagues who are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of those we serve.”

Walsh was recognized for her leadership in several key areas, including:

  • Establishing affiliations and partnerships to expand HealthPartners’ service area and provide high-quality, affordable care and coverage to more patients and members
  • Setting targeted, actionable goals to reduce health disparities in maternal and infant care, childhood immunizations, chronic conditions and preventive screenings
  • Implementing a collaborative, value-based care model that improves quality of care based on specific measures including hospital readmissions, care coordination and preventive care
  • Shaping health policy to ensure improved access to care, opportunities for expanded research and advocacy for health care workers

“The past year has been one in which disrupters turned into major players and industry leaders raised their voices to effect change within their organizations and the broader community,” said Modern Healthcare Editor Mary Ellen Podmolik. “Our 2022 ranking of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare recognizes these individuals who are transforming a major sector of the nation’s economy and are focused on improving care and payment models.”
