The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


Ali Khan, MD, MPP
Incoming Regional Medical Officer at CareMore, Faculty at Yale Medicine
Ali Khan, MD, MPPA former print journalist, Dr. Ali Khan believes that human stories are central to the practice of medicine. “Clinical models are designed to hear those stories, to give them the time and space they deserve and to then connect those narratives with the tools, interventions and supports necessary to elevate them,” says Khan. “I went into journalism with the intent of learning those stories; I went into medicine and policy to help solve them.”

Khan’s own story, the journey of a primary healthcare innovator on a mission to advance the human right to health, is filled with impressive milestones. Khan has held positions of leadership at the American College of Physicians, Doctors for America, Physicians for Human Rights and most recently Iora Health, a mission-driven primary care and technology company.

At Iora, Khan served as a practicing general internist, clinical innovator, and as of mid-2014, Director of Physician Engagement. Reporting directly to Iora’s Chief Medical Officer, Khan led the strategic design and implementation of a variety of initiatives in stakeholder engagement, population health, clinical quality improvement, clinical application product development, and workforce strategic planning.

In the spring of 2016, Khan will join CareMore Health System/Anthem as Regional Medical Officer for Northern California where he will oversee clinical operations, quality and outcomes for CareMore’s high-utilizer, vulnerable senior members across two counties in the Bay Area.

“As I now look to the next chapter of my own story, I aim to heed the proverbial call of public service to our nation’s health,” says Khan of the future. “Through service to high-impact, dynamic and mission-driven organizations in health care delivery, I hope to effect lasting change in my patients’ lives and in American society, no matter the ground in which those battles are waged.”
