Cheryl Smith, formerly an administrator at Leavitt Partners, has joined the state government healthcare practice at Deloitte.
She will serve as a leader for Deloitte Consulting LLP and work to help state governments manage medical aid and implement wellness programs for citizens, the company said Monday.
Smith has served as policy and strategy director for Utah’s health insurance exchange and has also spoken at events hosted by professional organization such as America’s Health Insurance Plans.
“Even with new legislation and monumental shifts in government and health care over the past few years, we are just beginning to feel the sweeping change that comes with health reform,” Smith said.
“Stakeholders from government and the private sector — including government agencies, insurers, providers and employers — are collectively heading down a path that is still taking shape,” she added.
