Meet Yolanda Bowes

Yolanda Bowes, CTC-RI Program Manager

Yolanda Bowes has joined CTC-RI as a contract project manager to support several important CTC-RI projects including a new demographic data collection pilot program aimed at identifying and reducing health disparities in underserved communities, a prior authorization project, a cost calculator initiative that will assist providers in the transition to a value-based payment model, and the primary care workforce development task force.  Yolanda earned a bachelor’s in management from Eastern CT State University and has a long history managing new and exciting private, state and federally-funded programs to address social determinants of health, as well as practice operations in both a federally qualified health center and a large accountable care organization outpatient clinic.

In my previous roles I implemented and managed innovative programs that provided outreach and connections to social service programs to improve the health and well-being of patients and the community.  I also had the opportunity to be involved in healthcare operations including designing and implementing new workflows and practice improvements, training staff, and participating in strategic initiatives.  I am very excited to join the CTC-RI team.  I am so impressed by the talented and passionate staff at CTC-RI, their partnerships with every sector of the healthcare system, and the work that is being done to improve the health and wellbeing of the residents of Rhode Island.
