Dr. Amy Boutwell Honored with Prestigious RISE Award for Healthcare Innovation

Dr. Amy Boutwell, M.D., MPP, founder and president of Collaborative Healthcare Strategies, was awarded the prestigious Dr. Martin L. Block Award for Innovation & Excellence at the RISE National 2024 conference. The award, sponsored by Nymbl, acknowledges Boutwell’s efforts to advance the lives of America’s seniors through clinical leadership, policy vision, and superior example of the RISE mission to promote continuous improvement in the healthcare system.

Boutwell was chosen from 12 worthy nominations for her work in developing models to reduce readmissions, accelerate the transition to value-based payment models, and transform care for multi-visit patients (MVPs) who experience recurrent acute care utilization. Over 275 hospital-based teams have participated in Boutwell’s MVP Implementation Coaching Program, resulting in significant reductions in emergency visits and lengths of stay for MVPs.

‘Dr. Boutwell’s work speaks volumes about her commitment to transforming health care delivery, especially for multi-visit patients, who are so often America’s seniors,’ said Ana Handshuh, principal at CAT5 Strategies and a member of the Block Award committee. ‘She’s challenged the notion that recurrent acute care is insurmountable, proving that impactful change is achievable.’

The award is named after the late Dr. Martin L. Block, a regular speaker at RISE National and an expert in the risk adjustment industry. RISE is the premier community for healthcare professionals focused on accountable care and government healthcare reform, providing networking, education, industry intelligence, and career development opportunities.
