DMC’s Auvil is honored with the Caravan Health Pioneer Award

ELKINS, W.Va. – Davis Medical Center (DMC) is pleased to announce that Tiffany Auvil, LPN was presented with the 2018 Population Health Pioneer Award for Practice Manager Leader by Caravan Health.

Auvil is the Population Health Nurse Manager at DMC and this award recognizes her efforts to lead caregivers in helping patients live better lives. The award is based on peer nominations within the ACO program.

A press release from Caravan Health said the award is an acknowledgement of the hard work necessary to succeed in the always-changing environment of modern health care.

“Tiffany has been instrumental in building our population health team and the programs that ensure patient care coordination and chronic care management,” said Vance Jackson, President & CEO of Davis Health System. “She’s caring and responsive, and at the same time full of energy and great ideas. It comes as no surprise that she is seen as a leader among her peers at Caravan Health.”

Auvil, who was one of six Individual ACO Award Winners, said she is honored, but the award reflects the work of a team.

“I’m fortunate to be part of an extended team that has embraced population health management,” said Auvil. “It has taken the support of the staff, the physicians and providers, and administration to advance our population health program over the past three years.”

Auvil’s award was formally presented at the Population Health Pioneer Awards banquet dinner during the third annual Caravan Health Accountable Care Symposium Dec. 5 to 6 in Phoenix, AZ. The much-anticipated Symposium featured thought leaders, industry experts, panel discussions, and breakout sessions that address the most pressing concerns of health system leaders today.

Auvil said Population Health programs are important, especially in rural areas because the focus of health care is changing.

“Today we focus on the person when they are well and strive to prevent their illness. We work closely with patients in planning, maintaining, and achieving health goals. Population Health nurses provide frequent communication with patients about medication management, changes in health status, staying on schedule with medical appointments and important screenings. This establishes closer relationships with our patients and ensures better outcomes for them,” she said.

Auvil has worked at Davis Medical Center since 2005 and has served as the Population Health Nurse Manager for the last 15 months.
