Jodeme’s passion is convening opportunities for those in health and social care systems to work together around common goals to realize the potential for transformative improvement. As health systems pursue better integration, Jodeme believes that we need to work in new ways, with new power structures, to bring out the best in individuals, teams, communities and systems.
Jodeme was formerly Executive Lead, Strategy and Innovation at The Change Foundation which serves as a catalyst to support large scale transformative change and ensures change opportunities are co-designed with patients/clients, their caregivers/carers and providers.
