Thomas Duncan attended Florida A & M University, School of Business, graduating Magna Cum Laude with an MBA. He began his healthcare career at a small community based hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Using analytics and metrics he built a stellar interdisciplinary team which created two profit centers for the hospital; a multi-specialty clinic serving over 10,000 patients and a 68 bed mental health unit. The mental health unit became licensed and JACHO certified within 9 months serving almost exclusively uninsured patients. Building on his success in team building serving the uninsured he then developed a company to serve the underinsured. Through analysis of patient utilization patterns with and without care management and personal coaching, Thomas developed an initial approach to changing patient health behaviors utilizing partnerships with their providers. His next entrepreneurial venture was Care Compensation Specialists which specialized in Medicaid, TANF, ABAD, and SSI enrollment. This venture was immediately successful and resulted in a sale to Accretive Health. He managed Medicaid revenue of just under $1B for over 45 hospital reimbursements previously uncovered.
