Tom Burden Vice Presidents for Competition:
Tom Burden
As part of a continuing series on our board members, we continue with the biography for two "Tom B's": Tom Burden and Tom Brett.
Tom Burden Forum Coordinator
Originally from Springfield, Massachusetts, Tom is a professional healthcare executive and retired naval officer now residing in Lorton, Virginia. He is married with two daughters and three grandchildren. Since retiring from the Navy after 23 years in Navy medicine, he has developed and managed a wide variety of outsourced and privatized health care services for government and commercial organizations throughout the United States as well as in Germany, Italy, and Korea.
Recently, Tom joined a new company, Innovative Logistics Technologies, Inc. where he is currently leading the launch of a new healthcare division.
He holds both an undergraduate and graduate degree in healthcare management and is board certified in healthcare administration.
Tom is also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, and has held faculty appointments at Wayland Baptist University and Baylor University. In addition to his professional activities, he has a passion for my family and grandkids, photography, international travel, the Washington Nationals, and spending down time at his vacation home in Bethany Beach, DE.
Tom joined NVPS in 2009 after purchasing his first DLSR. "I am basically a self-taught hobbyist", says Tom, who started using a Yashica 35mm film camera in 1972.
Tom currently works with a Nikon D90 as his main camera. When traveling or just in need of a one-lens solution, he often reaches for his AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II. When in need of a standard prime lens, he really likes the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, or for a slightly longer reach, the AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D. Recently, Tom added a set of Nikon's constant f2.8 lenses which he is still getting to know:
AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED
For macro work, Tom is just starting to use the AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED. Since it allows him to shoot in RAW format, he uses the Nikon P6000 as his pocket camera when the D90 is just more than he wants to carry.
As a longtime Apple user, Tom uses Aperture 3 as his principal photography application. He also uses the Nik Software Plug-in Suite, and has just upgraded to Photoshop CS5. He prints using an Epson R1900.
Tom says, "I am excited to be an NVPS member, and am deeply grateful to the many skilled members who have willingly shared their knowledge and experience."

Tom Burden, Co-Founder, COO and Principal, Potomac Healthcare Solutions
Tom Burden knows a thing or two about the Healthcare industry. Before becoming Principal and COO of Potomac Healthcare Solutions, a company he co-founded in 2011, Burden spent 23 years with Navy Medicine, eight years with PHP Healthcare Corporation and 10 years with health services firm CRAssociates. As a Navy Medical Service Corps Officer, Burden served on the staff of the Navy Surgeon General, and while at PHP, he managed numerous health services delivery contracts. He served as Executive VP at CRAssociates and contributed to the company's growth as well as led business development, program implementation and more.
Since founding Potomac Healthcare Solutions, Burden and co-founder Bill Joseph, implemented and operated an award-winning Army primary care clinic contract, which earned the company its 2012 Government Project of the Year Award from SECAF.
Tom Burden: Being recognized by your peers and colleagues has to be one of the ultimate professional rewards.
Tom Burden: As a new business, there's a natural temptation to chase every opportunity that comes along hoping that something will hit.
Tom Burden: Because today's competitive environment is so intense, we think LPTA simply drives a "race to the bottom" commodity mentality.
Tom Burden: Understand what your company is about - know what you do best and do it with a passion.
Tom Burden: There are plenty of teaming opportunities, but we prefer to prime. While we may miss some opportunities, we like the control that goes with priming. Both Bill and I have been doing this in a fairly specialized field for over twenty years, and we think we know what works and what doesn't.
WashingtonExec: How is mobility changing the role of the healthcare industry?
Tom Burden: Because of the ever-growing demand for all types of healthcare workers, today's healthcare workers are essentially at full employment. Other than filling entry positions for new grads, any employer hiring for a healthcare position usually has to lure a candidate away from another employer. Frequently, this occurs by increased compensation, thereby contributing to a very mobile workforce.
WashingtonExec: What's the greatest risk an entrepreneur can take?
Tom Burden: To me, the greatest risk, after a lifetime of working for someone else, was deciding to forego the financial security that went with being an employee and to commit to being my own boss - entirely responsible for my own success or failure. For instance making five payrolls before getting paid was certainly an eye-opener. Now, I say, "Why didn't I start sooner?"
WashingtonExec: What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Tom Burden: In 1973, as a young enlisted Navy hospital corpsman and college drop-out with a wife and child, I was grateful to have a steady paycheck and thought I'd be lucky to just keep climbing the enlisted ranks - not much more. However, my boss, a mid-grade officer who himself had been a prior enlisted man, took me aside one day, and basically told me I was wasting my time and talents. He advised me to get busy, get back into college, and go after a commission through the Navy's In-service Procurement Program. Something clicked - that was the kick in the rear I needed to see myself as a success. Three years later my wife and skipper pinned my ensign shoulder boards on.
WashingtonExec: What is something most people might not know about you?
Tom Burden: I'd rather be doing photography, but I can't make it pay enough.
