As we continue to travel down the path of healthcare transformation, there are key individuals—healthcare leaders and innovators—whose ideas and actions are helping to shape the new look of healthcare delivery in America. Tony Slonim, MD, DrPH, is one such individual. Dr. Slonim is president and chief executive officer of Renown Health in Reno, Nevada, a not-for-profit integrated health network and Accountable Care Organization serving a 17-county region that includes northern Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and northeast California. For the past four years, he has chaired the American Journal of Managed Care’s ACO Coalition. A recognized thought leader, he also serves on the American Hospital Association’s Health Care Systems Council, representing more than 250 integrated health systems in the U.S. and their concerns.
