Since she first joined RHA as a nurse in 2004, Tormeica Allison, MSN, RN, NE-BC has embodied why RHA Health Services is a place Where Humans Bloom. Since then, she has grown her career, her education, her family, and her extensive skillsets – and we’re thrilled to welcome her back into a new role.
With the goal of adding Care Management to the list of services we provide, RHA knew we needed someone with an understanding of the company, the right experience and education, and the leadership skills to spearhead this new endeavor.
RHA’s CEO Jeanne Duncan said, “We knew Tormeica would be a great fit for this role, and we’re excited to announce she’s returning to RHA as the Executive Director of Care Management. Her specific experience and expertise will ultimately help RHA be able to provide even more personalized care to the people we serve, and we’re grateful for her continued leadership.”
Allison’s background in nursing coupled with her leadership experience will be instrumental in making RHA’s care management model successful.
“Care management and care coordination are essentially in the DNA of a nurse and a main component of our training…caring for the whole person, which is what the Tailored Care Management model by the State of NC is seeking to achieve for the behavioral health and I/DD population through managed care,” said Allison.
RHA’s Care Management program is expected to launch in December of 2022, and we’re excited to expand the capacity for ways RHA can provide care and services to the people we support.
Behavioral Health Clinical Director Sharlena Thomas said, “Care Management involves ‘whole person care’ by attending to any need a person may have through assessment, planning, coordination, arranging and linking to appointments, monitoring attendance and efficacy, and communicating to multiple providers involved through a person’s care. We are excited about this opportunity to improve health outcomes through care management services.”
Throughout Allison’s time at RHA, she’s appreciated the flexibility with her work/life balance, close relationships with her coworkers, and opportunities for professional development.
Allison said, “When I came back [to RHA], it still felt like home. A lot had changed, but the culture hadn’t changed – and I was grateful for that.”
