Sally Covington is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Community Campaigns for Quality Care, a non-profit organization assisting governments, private sector employers and unions to reduce the cost of their health care by improving its quality. CCQC strengthens the information base for informed health care purchasing and health plan contract negotiations by identifying in precise, clinically useful detail the dollars spent on routine complications that are prevalent in patients who do not receive optimal care.
Prior to CCQC, Sally served as the founding Executive Director of the California Health Care Coalition, a non-profit organization of employers, trust funds and unions dedicated to improving health care quality and costs without eroding benefits. Under her tenure, CHCC grew to represent four million Californians and became a recognized force for performance transparency and accountability through use of data and the formation of innovative provider or health plan partnerships to monitor performance, set improvement benchmarks, and reward providers when they met or exceeded improvement goals.
Previously, she directed the National Center for Schools and Communities at Fordham University, where she managed a national network of community schools providing integrated educational, health and social services to public school students in high-poverty communities and oversaw a program of evaluation research to assess the educational impacts of school-based support services.
Sally graduated Magna Cum Laude from Barnard College, Columbia University with a B.A. in Economics and completed doctoral work and exams in Politics and Policy at the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York. She has served as an advisory board member of the Betanzos Community Health Center, the Aspen Institute Non-profit Sector Research Fund, the California Economic Strategy Panel, and the University of California Berkley Center for Labor Research and Education.
