MOORESTOWN, N.J., Aug. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc.’s (“TRHC”) (NASDAQ: TRHC) Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Phillip W. Heath, MS-HSA, received the Minority Business Leader Award from the Philadelphia Business Journal August 16, 2018. The awards celebration was held at the Society Hill Sheraton in Philadelphia. Winners were selected based on “professional accomplishments, community leadership, philanthropy as well as awards and milestones.”
In his position as CAO for Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Heath recently implemented a robust cloud-based human capital management system and initiated the launch of a new digital workplace to modernize the company intranet and ensure the company is operating at optimum level. Additionally, he served as co-lead on due-diligence efforts for a major medication therapy management acquisition and continues to work through the integration efforts post-acquisition.
“Phillip Heath has been a major player in turning Tabula Rasa HealthCare into the company it is today,” said TRHC President, Chief Business Development Officer and Co-founder, Orsula V. Knowlton, PharmD. “He is not only an influential member of the executive team, but a role model for all.”
Under his leadership, the Company’s approach to internal communication has expanded through the use of new tools designed to engage employees in the digital workplace. A modern intranet that enables continued high performance was launched in June. Additionally, Heath spearheaded a new company culture initiative called the TRHC Way that has been instrumental in cultural integration for all corporate acquisitions. In the community, Heath serves on the Board of Trustees of Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice of Southern NJ.
Upon receiving his award, Heath was asked, “What makes you excited to come to work?” He responded, “I am excited to come to work each day because it offers an opportunity to be a change agent in my field of work. I see myself as a developer of people,” he continued. “I can proudly say I have mentored many people, male and female, across ethnic and racial groups to success in their chosen field. While most of those…. have been in healthcare, I am honored and humbled to see a large number of successful professionals I have helped along the way.”
Prior to joining TRHC in 2015, Heath served as Chief Marketing and Sales Officer and Chief Administrative Officer at InnovAge, a provider of long-term care services. He spent more than 18 years in hospice services as Vice President of Business Development for the Denver Hospice as well as in business development with TRU Community Care in Boulder, CO, and operational roles with Odyssey Hospice and VITAS Healthcare.
