Emeryville, CA – Vituity is proud to announce that Imamu “Mu” Tomlinson, MD, MBA, was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of this year’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives. The complete ranking and profiles of the honorees are available in the June 21 issue of Modern Healthcare.
The recognition program acknowledges clinicians working in the healthcare industry who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential in terms of demonstrating leadership and impact. Dr. Tomlinson was selected in part due to his trailblazing leadership in 2020, during which Vituity significantly expanded its scope of care delivery via virtual care models and deployed its clinicians to one of the hardest hit areas of the country in the early months of the pandemic. In addition, Dr. Tomlinson formed and serves as President of Vituity Cares, a charitable foundation dedicated to improving the health of underserved communities and addressing inequality and inequity in healthcare.
