“Kathy galia took on Paradigm’s mission to improve more lives and created new avenues for our growth, ”said Paradigm CEO, John S. Watts, Jr. “Since joining the company in 2019, Kathy has been a strong thought leader and influential presence, consistently focused on Paradigm’s mission to deliver the best possible results that drive results that change the world. She has such an impressive talent for identifying and responding to emerging trends in healthcare, which are rooted in her exceptional vision, foresight and ability to build highly functional teams. ”
Galia has played a key role in the development and construction of several initiatives that have had a significant impact on Paradigm’s organizational growth and its ability to deliver results-oriented and value-driven care. “Kathy has had a profound effect on the organization and the industry during her already impressive tenure with us,” said Paradigm Chief Clinical Solutions Officer, Kevin turner. He added, “Paradigm will continue to rely on his leadership for continued growth as we seek to help as many injured workers as possible. Highlights of Kathy’s accomplishments include an industry-first value-based partnership initiative with best-in-class vendors including Shirley Ryan AbilityLab and Brooks Rehabilitation, as well as the launch of a partnership with AiRCare Health to provide improved behavioral support from day one to injured workers and their families.
Last year, Galia managed the launch of Paradigm Contagion CareSM, an award-winning, one-of-a-kind solution to provide injured workers with COVID-19 – and their families – the best chance for optimal recovery. Recently, Galia has encouraged the introduction of episodic care management into workers’ compensation as an approach that can reduce costs, increase patient engagement and improve outcomes. Trained as a nurse, Galia approaches every project and decision like a true patient advocate, with the ultimate goal of ensuring the long-term health of injured workers.
As Paradigm strives to create a more diverse and inclusive culture that is better able to manage care for a changing workforce, Galia is also setting a powerful example through an open and collaborative leadership style. “Kathy brings a confident and refreshing style to our business and is very inclusive in her approach to leadership,” said Watts. “She is the first to recognize the team’s collective efforts and achievements.”
