TOLEDO —  ProMedica CEO Randy Oostra is among Modern Healthcare’s 2022 class of top innovators.

Modern Healthcare, a health care business news, research and data publication, annually recognizes leaders who are instituting innovation and leading transformative programs that improve care by achieving measurable results and contributing to the clinical and financial goals of their organization, a news release from ProMedica said.

“The healthcare industry is undergoing rapid transformation, driven by innovations in digital health technology and demand for alternative care models. This year’s Top 25 Innovators not only have the courage to try new ideas and approaches, but they also have the vision to turn them into tangible improvements in patient outcomes and experiences, population health, efficiency and cost-effectiveness,” Modern Healthcare Publisher Fawn Lopez said in the release. “Their innovative leadership serves as a model to aspire to, and we congratulate them for their achievements.”

As part of Modern Healthcare’s 2022 class of top innovators, Oostra was recognized for ProMedica taking the lead in implementing innovative solutions related to addressing the social determinants of health and healthy aging, the release said. Of special mention was ProMedica’s partnership with Kumanu, a well-being technology firm. In 2021, they launched Resourceful, which supports employers in addressing unrecognized social determinants of health issues. By combining Resourceful with an existing Kumanu solution called Purposeful, the partnership also enables employers to help employees navigate the personal determinants of health, such as a sense of purpose and resilience.

Oostra is a former president of the Lenawee Health Alliance and ProMedica’s north region, which included Bixby and Herrick hospitals in Adrian and Tecumseh.
