Maureen Henry, JD

Senior Manager, CVP Health

Maureen Henry has 20 years of cross-disciplinary experience in health policy, quality improvement, performance measurement, and complex patient populations. Currently, as a Senior Manager at CVP Health, she is part of a team using information technology and advanced analytics to solve intractable changes in quality improvement and measurement, policy, and healthcare delivery. Before joining CVP, she was a Research Scientist at NCQA, where she focused on measures for high needs/high cost patient populations, including those with multiple chronic conditions, serious illness (hospice and palliative care), and renal disease. As a Health and Aging Policy Fellow, Maureen worked as a healthcare staffer in Virginia Senator Mark Warner’s Washington office. In that role, she assisted with negotiating and drafting the Care Planning Act of 2013 and met with constituents in DC and Virginia. Utah Governor Jon M. Huntsman appointed Maureen as the Executive Director of the Utah Commission on Aging in 2005. She led the process of rewriting the state’s advance directive and POLST laws, successfully introduced legislation to allow geriatricians to participate in loan forgiveness programs, and collaborated with agencies such as AARP and the United Way to meet the needs of older adults in Utah. She secured funding to create the Utah Aging and Disability Center in 2009 and directed the program through 2019. Before 2005, Maureen practiced elder law and was a Project Director at HealthInsight (now Comagine Health), leading a state-wide partnership on end-of-life care, and practiced elder law.  She was awarded a J.D. by the University of California Berkeley Law School (Boalt Hall) and a Ph.D. in Nursing Research from the University of Utah. She is interested in biomedical ethics, person-driven care, autonomy in cognitive impairment, and engaging patients in shaping quality measures and the healthcare system.
