PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – June 19, 2019 – Tridiuum, the leading provider of digital health solutions for accelerating behavioral and medical care integration, today announced Cori McMahon, Vice President for Clinical Services, has been named to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Advisory Panel on Outreach and Education (APOE). The panel advises the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the CMS Administrator on education and outreach opportunities pertaining to Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
McMahon was selected for her expertise in the areas of behavioral health, outreach to minority and underserved communities, disease-related advocacy, and senior citizen advocacy.
“Appointing Cori to this panel demonstrates two things,” said Mark Redlus, Tridiuum CEO. “First, it recognizes her incredible value as a subject matter expert as it relates to the impact of behavioral health on total health, and second, it validates the importance of a behavioral health perspective on national healthcare initiatives.”
“I am so honored to be appointed to this panel,” said McMahon. “As a behavioral medicine clinician, I routinely encounter Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP patients and see the impact of timely behavioral health treatment on their overall health and wellbeing. Making behavioral health a routine part of education and outreach confirms that CMS is driving a total health approach, which will deliver better quality and outcomes at lower costs.”
McMahon’s participation on the APOE will begin in September. She will serve a two-year term.
