Dr. Christopher Dodd has maintained leadership focus on the quadruple aim in health care (promoting joy in work, enhancing patient experience, pursuing data-driven quality improvement, and delivering the right care in the right place at the right time by the right care team member), which has been critical to driving improved results for patients as well as provider group and health plan partners, cementing ConcertoHealth as a leader in the successful transformation of the U.S. health care system. As Chief Clinical Officer, he leads the development of enterprise-wide clinical strategy and programs, including accelerating integration of the ConcertoHealth direct delivery and care management teams through the expansion of field-based care for the highest-utilizing, highest-cost patients, a.k.a. “hot spotters.”
Dr. Dodd has more than a decade of experience caring for vulnerable populations as a practicing internal medicine physician and public health practitioner. He has worked in some of the world’s most challenging settings, including Mozambique and Nicaragua, as well as in underserved communities across the U.S. Prior to joining ConcertoHealth, Dr. Dodd cared for high-need, high-risk patients at Harborview Medical Center as an inpatient hospitalist. He also served as a physician leader at Seattle’s largest Federally Qualified Health Center, Neighborcare Health. There, he led a successful Center for Medicare Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) grant that supported a team-based approach to caring for complex populations, resulting in better health outcomes, improved patient satisfaction and reduced costs of care.
Dr. Dodd is a founding member and current president of the board of directors of Maravilla Health, an organization that supports community-based groups and public health systems in countries with limited resources. He also serves as a faculty member in the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington, where he teaches student health professionals.
Dr. Dodd earned his Doctor of Medicine from the Boston University School of Medicine and completed the Program in Clinical Effectiveness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
