Meghan Manilla works with variety of states on large-scale transformation initiatives, including developing statewide infrastructures to coordinate care and align financial incentives through value-based payments for providers. She has worked developing statewide provider-payer partnerships, supporting, and developing several State Health Care Innovation Plans where she worked with diverse stakeholders to propose new and sustainable health care innovations.

Her most recent work has focused on supporting behavioral health organizations in developing statewide, clinically integrated networks formalized through an independent practice association (IPA). Meghan has developed behavioral health IPAs in multiple states, building the clinical, financial, operational, and governance models to support the IPA. In addition to her IPA work, she has worked with health systems, providers, and payers on workforce training strategies, behavioral health redesign, value-based payment strategies, and development and implementation of care management models.

She previously served as the administrator of HMA’s Healthcare Transformation Institute where she focused on building and expanding the institute through new educational programs and leadership development. She organized seminars and workshops including large-scale training sessions for providers with a focus on organizing care for underserved populations. She also assisted in writing and producing tools focused on the transformation of healthcare delivery to integrated systems of care.

Before joining HMA, Meghan worked for both corporate and nonprofit organizations and attended a global business graduate program in the District of Columbia to gain greater experience in development and foreign aid projects. Her nonprofit experience includes working with a non-governmental organization to advance trade, economic, and commercial development overseas and working in Mexico helping rural communities gain access to clean water.
