URAC, a leading health care accreditation and education organization, recognized its 2013 Health Care Stars! Awards winners. Honored this year were Elvin Montanez, Pharm.D., Samuel Nussbaum, MD, and Leslie Wilchinsky, RN, CCM. URAC’s Health Care Stars! Award honors those who have demonstrated a commitment to the welfare of health care consumers through saving and improving lives, preventing adverse health outcomes, and other positive changes. The awards were presented during URAC’s 2013 Annual Quality Summit and Awards Program in Washington, DC.

“Individuals who choose to work in health care have a rare dedication to improving the lives of others,” said Kylanne Green, URAC President and CEO. “We are honored to showcase a select few who have constantly risen above their daily duties. These exceptional people do great work to protect and empower health care consumers worldwide.”

This year’s Health Care Star! Award winners are:

  •     Dr. Elvin Montanez, Senior Vice President, BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy
Dr. Montanez has a proven dedication to protecting and empowering health care consumers. He spearheaded the introduction of BioPlus’ “2-Hour Patient Acceptance Guarantee” program in 2013 which guarantees notification to physician offices in less than two hours whether their referred patients are accepted for treatment through the BioPlus specialty pharmacy. Additionally, he was part of the leadership team of the Patient Foundation Assistance program which successfully connected BioPlus patients with $5.1 million in foundation grants and co-pay assistance last year, without which some patients with chronic, complex, and/or life-threatening diseases would not be able to start treatment.
