Spatially Health–a cloud-based, health equity platform focused on identifying and addressing social determinants of health (SDOH) and health equity barriers–is excited to announce the appointment of healthcare leader Tom Fluegel as its newest Advisory Board member. Tom will play a pivotal role in shaping the company’s strategic vision and decision-making.
Committed to driving healthcare innovation, fostering patient-centric solutions, and finding real solutions for SDOH, Spatially Health will work with Tom to identify and address health equity challenges. His years leading the operations of multi-million dollar healthcare institutions have given Tom firsthand knowledge of gaps in health systems and equipped him to help Spatially Health identify approaches that work. Tom is committed to finding solutions to rising healthcare costs, lack of access, and inequity of care, particularly for people of color and low-income Americans.
“It’s a privilege to have Tom Fluegel join our Advisory Board,” stated Dr. Hillit Meidar-Alfi, the CEO and co-founder of Spatially Health. “Tom’s extensive knowledge of quality improvement and his years of experience will be crucial in shaping the trajectory of Spatially Health and amplifying our influence.”
Tom has held leadership roles in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years. For the past decade, he has served as the Chief Operating Officer for the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a non-profit organization driving healthcare quality improvement through accreditation, measurement, and government contracting. Tom leads all aspects of strategic planning, business planning, and operational execution to achieve NCQA’s mission and goals. Prior to NCQA, he served as Chief Operating Officer for a subsidiary of Coventry Health Care.
Previously, he held diverse leadership positions at UnitedHealth Group, including two Vice President posts, Chief Information Officer, and Senior Vice President for Client Operations. He also directed group administration, sales, and account management activities with Cigna, as well as acquisitions, integration, and operations at SafeGuard Health Enterprises. Tom holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Washington University in St. Louis and an MBA from the University of Miami.
