Edifecs Executive Selected to Team of Experts Supporting the State’s Health Insurance Exchange
BELLEVUE, Wash. – April 10, 2014 – Edifecs Inc., a global healthcare solutions company specializing in information management and compliance technology, today announced that Pamela Fowler has been appointed to the Washington Health Benefit Exchange Advisory Committee. Fowler was selected for her extensive healthcare knowledge, industry experience and involvement in the local community. At Edifecs, she leads product marketing for consumer solutions in support of group and individual members—on and off exchanges.
Fowler has served the Pacific Northwest healthcare community for more than 21 years, working with payers, providers and employers. For the past four years, she has been on the Board of Trustees at UW Medicine/Northwest Hospital & Medical Center holding positions on the IT Committee and Clinical Quality Committees. Fowler has also been a member of the UW Physicians Board, which supports nearly 3,000 practicing faculty physicians in the community.
“I am excited to expand my commitment to the community and continue supporting affordable access to healthcare for citizens in Washington State,” said Fowler. “My work with underserved populations provides me with a unique perspective on the accessibility of healthcare and I hope to use this experience to support the Exchange as it continues to be one of the most successful in the country.”
The Washington Health Benefit Exchange was created in 2011 and is responsible for the creation of the Washington Healthplanfinder, the state’s online marketplace for individuals, families and small businesses to find, compare and enroll in qualified health insurance plans. The Advisory Committee is made up of 20 individually selected community professionals who are tasked with deliberating on issues passed down from the Exchange Board. These professionals then use their unique expertise and individual perspectives to provide recommendations to the Board Committees.
“We’re excited to see our leadership contribute to the health insurance exchange rollout, particularly at the community level,” said Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs. “Pamela’s experience and unique insights into healthcare trends and today’s technology challenges makes her a valuable committee participant and leader as we work to improve healthcare across Washington.”
