Bethesda, Md. – December 21, 2021 — Aledade is proud to announce that Modern Healthcare named CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Farzad Mostashari to its “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare for 2021” list.
This prestigious recognition honors individuals who are deemed by their peers and the senior editors of Modern Healthcare to be the most influential individuals in the industry based on leadership and impact.
“I am honored to be named to Modern Healthcare’s ‘100 Most Influential People in Healthcare for 2021’ list,” said Farzad Mostashari, CEO and Co-Founder of Aledade. “But I’m also humbled, because recognition for influence also brings with it an obligation. What– and who– are we using this influence for?”
In 2021, Mostashari used his influence in service to primary care physicians across the country by advocating on their behalf to policymakers, advancing knowledge through research on the impact of the pandemic on health equity, as well as evidence for physician-led ACOs in payment reform, and helping independent physicians stay independent and thrive by keeping their patients healthy. He has tried to leverage his national platform to shine a spotlight on the challenges that primary care physicians face, even as they serve on the frontlines of a global pandemic, and the ways that value-based care can empower these physicians and reorient our health care system toward one that works better for patients, doctors, and society.
In the seven years since founding Aledade, Mostashari has helped the company become the leading and most successful enabler of primary care practices in accountable care relationships. He previously served as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology from 2011-2013, and served at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene as Assistant Commissioner for the Primary Care Information Project before that.
He currently serves on the Founder's Council of United States of Care and is a Visiting Fellow at the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University.
