Healthcare, transportation, and logistics company MTM has named Tamara Carlton as its new Director, Social Determinants of Health and Product Development. In the newly created position, Ms. Carlton will deliver strategies and solutions to help remove inequalities in healthcare for MTM clients and their communities.
"MTM has always been a collaborative partner for our clients, and is committed to supporting our partners as they solve for health disparities and SDoH needs," said MTM President and CEO Alaina Maciá. "2020 showed us how important it is that we take progressive steps to mitigate disparities in our communities. Under Tamara's leadership, I'm confident that MTM will execute fresh initiatives to help our current and future partners improve health outcomes, reduce healthcare expenses, and encourage members to enhance their quality of life."
Ms. Carlton has been with MTM for the last four years as director of product development. She has nearly 30 years of experience in the product management space, including senior roles with Save-A-Lot, American Express Incentive Services, and May Merchandising Company.
"MTM cares about more than just non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) - we want to help our clients find solutions to address the disparities so many of our communities face," said Ms. Carlton. "MTM is proving to be a strategic partner in the care continuum. I look forward to working with our partners to address gaps that exist around housing, food insecurity, joblessness, education, social isolation, and of course, transportation."
