  • Art Jones, MD
    • A pioneer in the accountable care organization movement, Dr. Arthur Jones has 27 years of “boots-on-the-ground” experience as the founding physician and CEO of Lawndale Christian Health Center — a large urban community health center on Chicago’s west side.
    • Dr. Jones helped establish Lawndale as a model managed care organization in the forefront of delivering Medicaid services under a near global capitation payment system. During his tenure, the organization earned top ratings for financial performance and invested in innovations to improve the health of the uninsured. Its redesigned delivery model capitalizes on the efficiencies of electronic medical records, and its care coordinators are creating fully integrated medical homes. Dr. Jones has also served as chief medical officer for a Medicaid managed care company.
    • Work is his home, and community health is his passion. Dr. Jones has lived in the disadvantaged community he has served since 1980. He “moonlights” as the chief medical officer for Medical Home Network — a foundation-funded demonstration project to improve the health status of low-income Chicago area residents by organizing providers to elevate quality, improve access, reduce costs and reinforce the medical home.
