Joseph Tomaino, Architect of Value Based Care
As a chief executive officer, chief nursing officer, consultant, and educator, Joseph Tomaino has worked with provider organizations and payers across the United States as an architect of value based care — improving clinical effectiveness along with efficient use of resources. Tomaino uses data to understand populations being served and the effectiveness of organizations, then applies innovative design of structures and programs to improve their performance, and finally helps them to transform themselves to operate successfully in managed care and accountable care reimbursement environments.
Most recently, Joseph was Chief Executive Officer of the Continuing Care Division of a major multi-hospital health system and was responsible for organizations with a total of $280 million a year in revenue. His major accomplishments in this role included leading the system’s application and approval as an awardee conveyer of Model 2 CMS Bundled Payment Initiative, guiding the assimilation of a struggling independent home health agency into a system supported by a $4.1M Vital Access Provider Grant, and successful application for $3.1M in HEAL funding for a cross-continuum pediatric ventilator program. He also successfully consolidated two home care agencies and achieved savings of $1.3M and implemented a redesigned care model resulting in improved utilization and profitability.
Tomaino has served on the board of directors and executive committee of Westchester Medical Center, a tertiary academic medical center, and of HEALTHIX, a regional health information exchange. He also served on the executive management committee of Long Island Health Network, a clinically integrated multi-hospital network.
Tomaino holds a Masters of Science degree in nursing administration from College of New Rochelle, and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing Degree from the Catholic University of America. He has served on the graduate faculty of Pace University, the College of New Rochelle, and Columbia University where he served as Assistant Dean and Director of Clinical Affairs for the School of Nursing.
“Joseph and I worked on several healthcare projects together, all of which focused on strategy and alignment of mission with investment. Joe has a depth of understanding in the industry, with an emphasis on revenue streams, operational excellence and governance best practices, second to none. And he does it all with a delightful sense of humor that makes any project fun and exciting. While I have worked as a professional service provider to the CCRC and LTC healthcare subsector for over 20 years, I learn from Joe every time we work together!”
