Children and improving access to the great care they deserve is my passion. I am a strong believer in the medical home for children and adults. Through my varied clinical and leadership experiences, I have found my strengths to be providing vision to foster innovation , creating structure that drives quality, and developing financially sustainable models that will ensure children get the care they deserve. I enjoy leading thru being mission driven, challenging the status quo and building consensus through dialogue and trust.
Prior to CCI, Sofi co-founded ACCESS Health International, a think tank, advisory group, and implementation partner with a founding vision that everyone, everywhere in the world, has the right to access high quality and affordable health care. She started the organization in India, served as the Executive Director and grew the organization to more than 70 people and offices across the largest cities in Asia. Today, ACCESS Health is a leading think tank for health system transformation in Asia and a trusted partner to many governments for work on health care reform. Sofi has also co-founded and built several international partnerships including the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage, a network of policy makers across more than 30 member countries working to improve coverage, quality, and financing of health care.
As a digital health equity thought leader, I have developed a 10-step model to help health systems, technology developers, government agencies, non-profits and more to ensure that digital health mitigates, rather than exacerbates health and other disparities. With a PhD in public health and 30+ years experience in all of these sectors, I am a member of the Executive Adivsory Board of NODE.Health, the Network of Digital Evidence for Health; the Digital Medicine Society's Digital Health Measurement Collaborative Community, and Health Advisor to the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. Through Public Health Innovators, LLC, I bring public health perspectives to health innovation, and innovation to public health processes.
