I am an independent health policy consultant, working with organizations to advance patient-centeredness and equity in health care.  I also support strategic and program planning and fund development at non-profit organizations.

Prior to establishing my consulting practice in 2010, I was a program officer and program director at The California Endowment for seven years, directing the statewide foundation’s work on language access, cultural competency, health care disparities, health workforce diversity, and health information technology.  I managed grants to national accreditation organizations, and to health professions education institutions, hospitals and health systems, health plans, physician associations, local health departments, community health centers, and community-based organizations throughout California.

I previously worked at the Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF), directing health policy and programs for seven years, and at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area, as a civil rights and immigration law attorney for ten years.  At APIAHF, we led community efforts that resulted in the creation of the first White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and I was the principal author of the first report from the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

I have been a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS and have served on expert advisory panels for the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Institute of Medicine, National Quality Forum, Joint Commission, California Department of Health Services, and California Health Interview Survey.

One Response to Who is Ignatius?

  1. Good morning Ignatius! Fabulous brief on “How Medical Homes Can Advance Health Equity”- Excellent overview, and read with great interest the sections on current efforts to promote medical homes; patient consumer perspectives on medical homes; and conclusion. The diabetes example you provide “Through A Patient’s Experience…” is an excellent one, and I really appreciate how you demonstrate the variety of ways texting can be used to coordinate/facilitate/manage care bilingually!
    Your website looks great. However, I am unable to access side tabe from work. That is, when clicking the side tabs, I am blocked? Maybe an HHS blocker, not sure. I’ll try from home.
    Take care.Chrsitina
