Prior to joining AllWays, she was Director of Commercial Contracting at Tufts Health Plan, where she was responsible for network performance management and expanding value-based contracts. St. Thomas is a regular volunteer in the community and serves on the New England board and chairs the growth committee of the March of Dimes.

“Jennifer’s experience makes her ideally suited to help advance our value-based care strategy with Mass General Brigham,” said Steven Tringale, President, AllWays Health Partners. “She will maintain her focus on creating an exceptional experience for customers as we implement additional value-based products and programs that hold down costs and improve health outcomes.”

Mass General Brigham's value-based care strategy enables health care services to be delivered in the most appropriate, cost-effective, and convenient setting, whether it is in a physician's office, an academic medical center, a community-based provider, in front of a computer, or on a mobile phone. Value-based initiatives already launched include “Allies,” a network product developed by AllWays and Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and “Down Syndrome Clinic to You,” an automated program, developed by Massachusetts General Hospital and MassGeneral Hospital for Children, to connect families and physicians with personalized information and guidance.
A graduate of Bowdoin College and resident of Wellesley, St. Thomas succeeds Vincent Capozzi, who is retiring after more than 37 years in the health insurance business. Vincent’s contributions to AllWays Health Partners were critical to its evolution and growth in the commercial market.
