Tao has held a wide variety of roles in her career, in both the healthcare analytics and commercial payer space. At the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Tao spent 5 years leading analytics and reporting for multiple CMS Medicare Shared Saving Program (MSSP) accountable care organizations (ACOs). Her work contributed to the success of thousands of clinicians, and improved health outcomes for millions of Medicare beneficiaries.
In addition to her time at the CMS, Tao also spent nearly a decade with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), where she served as Director for Clinical Epidemiology and the Biostatistics Team. While at BCBSM, Tao led analytics work supporting Physician Group Incentive Programs and Hospital Pay for Performance Programs, and contributed significantly to Population Health Management analytics. Tao has also worked for the Michigan Department of Community Health and Michigan State University, in addition to performing a fellowship at the Centers for Disease Control with the National Center for Health Statistics.
“It goes without saying that Dr. Tao’s arrival marks a hugely valuable addition to the analytics department here at Medical Advantage,” said Darline El Reda, Medical Advantage’s Vice President of Population Health. “In addition to her impressive background, her ability to not only gather data – but to apply the insights gleaned from them to make a difference – will surely have an impact on improving outcomes for payers, physicians, and patients alike.”
As the nation’s healthcare system shifts away from traditional fee-for-service to new models which pay providers for quality of care and outcomes, Tao is passionate about using her analytics expertise to assist clinicians and facilities who are embracing this transformational journey.
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the team here at Medical Advantage. One of the deciding factors for me was the people who work here, and the connection I felt with the team right from the beginning,” Tao said. “I’m proud to be part of the analytics team here at Medical Advantage – and look forward to furthering our focus toward serving our clients and making a positive difference in patient lives.”
