Teresa N. Clark, MPH, MBA, General Manager, Walgreens Boots Alliance
Dual expertise in digital health and payment innovation across both government and private
sectors provides Teresa Clark with exceptional perspectives on emerging care models,
community-level lifestyle change, information technology, innovation, and health care
Ms. Clark currently serves as the General Manager, Healthcare Commercialization, for
Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA). In this role, she leads the end to end, got-to-market
operations and growth strategy for WBA’s healthcare marketplace that result in the mass
personalization of meaningful health outcomes and commercial growth. She continues to be
a major contributor to iterating digital platforms from functioning as transactional digital
health surfaces, to instead playing a pivotal role in intercepting and connecting to care while
also sustainably addressing the social determinants of health. She leads the evaluation of
digital health apps, tools, and technologies, systematically assessing their roles in the
evolving WBA omnichannel health ecosystem.
Prior to WBA, Ms. Clark served as Vice President, Emerging Care Models for Solera Health,
Inc, a private equity backed medical technology company focusing on consumer digital
health. In this role, Ms. Clark spearheaded the design, development, and launch of Solera’s
award-winning lifestyle change platform. Disrupting the current clinician-knows-best
approach, Ms. Clark designed and took to market a 3-sided health platform that allowed
inclusive consumer choice within a health network for both traditional in-person and nontraditional digital health providers, all commercialized as a value-based payment model for
commercial and Medicare Advantage products.
Prior to Solera Health, Ms. Clark served as Vice President, Clinical Affairs and Health
Innovation for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA). In her national system-wide
leadership role, Clark spearheaded numerous efforts to address diversity in digital health
especially as it relates to necessary changes in commercialization models. This includes
strategies around consumer engagement and retention, as well as the use of adaptive
platform technologies and mass personalization. Ms. Clark also provided leadership insight
into the medical policy and systematic evidence review that allowed timely policy decisions
to meet fast-paced market demands. She provided leadership accountability for the
determination, evaluation, and implementation of national reference medical policies on
medical items, non-implantable medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and laboratory tests. Ms.
Clark rounded out her time at the BCBSA leading the national agenda aimed at opioid use
disorder, precision medicine, and the uses of real-world evidence in regulatory decisions,
especially around patient-focused drug development.
Prior to BCBSA, Ms. Clark held leadership positions for nearly a decade in both the health
care provider and government payer sectors. Within the provider sector, Ms. Clark provided
leadership as vice president, Clinical Business Strategies, for Vizient, Inc., where she
designed and scaled the Health Engagement Network (HEN) for hospitals, which resulted in
sustainable decreases in patient harm while increasing hospital financial performance on the
HCAHPS measures, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems.
Within the government payer sector, Clark provided leadership as the Special Assistant,
Value-Based Purchasing at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) under
President George W. Bush’s Administration.
Ms. Clark holds a Master of Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg
School of Public Health; a Master of Business Administration from the University of
Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business; and a Master of Art in Applied Anthropology from
the University of North Texas. Ms. Clark also holds software patent and user interface
design patent for the BCBSA’s med-technology product Community Health Management Hub
Ms. Clark resides in the North Shore suburbs of Chicago with her husband and three sons.
