This week we’re having a conversation with Joanna Hiatt Kim, Vice President of Payment Policy, with the America Hospital Association (AHA). Joanna leads the association’s work on Medicare payment, including for inpatient and outpatient hospital care, post-acute care, and physician services.
“That is really where leadership comes into play and where the rubber meets the road to make these strategies work.”
Joanna came to the AHA from the United States Government Accountability Office, where she served as a Senior Health Policy Analyst. In this role, she advised Congress on potential policy changes and conducted policy analyses on a wide range of issues, including Medicare payment policy and hospital community benefits.
Joanna is from Orlando, Florida and received both a Master’s degree in sociology and Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Stanford University.
