Healthcare Justice Perspectives

Modern Healthcare - one of this year’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives!

Vituity CEO Imamu “Mu” Tomlinson, MD, MBA, has been recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of this year’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives! This award recognizes his leadership in expanding Vituity’s scope of care delivery via virtual care models and deploying its clinicians to one of the hardest hit areas of the country in the early months of the pandemic.

This is Dr. Tomlinson’s second major award recognition in 2021, following his acknowledgement as one of Fierce Healthcare’s Most Influential Minority Executives!


Healthcare Justice Starts With Us

As healthcare leaders and clinicians, we must “walk the walk” to promote inclusiveness and recognition of inequality. The noticeable influence of racism permeates heavily throughout our society, with healthcare injustice being one of the most pervasive and dangerous determinants.

At Vituity we are committed to creating a more equitable healthcare system for all. We are joining crucial conversations on healthcare inequities, enforcing culturally competent care standards in our organization and actively creating pathways for future generations of diverse leaders.

As a country, as a community, we are only as healthy as the most vulnerable among us…. in order for us to deal with this pandemic, then we actually need to be focused on improving baseline healthcare for everyone.
