Claire Zimmerman joined the Equality Health team in 2018 and serves as Vice President of Product Innovation. She works closely with Equality Health’s partners to drive product strategy and ensure successful delivery and adoption of Equality Health’s technology solutions throughout the U.S.
Claire has more than a decade of healthcare experience, beginning her career in hospital
administration in rural Northern Arizona where she became acutely familiar with
the disparity that exists across the healthcare industry, particularly in rural
and minority populations. She subsequently built her career around leveraging
technology to combat that disparity.
Claire spent seven
years at UnitedHealthcare, where she was accountable for the operations and
infrastructure supporting the Medicaid Accountable Care and Health Home
programs—initiatives that grew from a few thousand Medicaid beneficiaries to
more than a million over the course of her tenure.
She managed the
deployment of a number of UnitedHealthcare’s technology platforms in the
Medicaid and Medicare space, and implemented data exchange protocols with 15
Health Information Exchanges and more than 600 hospitals to support these
platforms. She was honored with an ATHENA nomination by the Greater Phoenix
Chamber of Commerce in 2017 for her unfailing drive to improve healthcare
outcomes for the underserved.
Claire is an Arizona native and holds degrees
from both the University of Arizona and Arizona State University.
