RI International Deputy CEO

Former Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) Executive Joins RI International

Paul’s responsibilities will include supporting me with the strategic plan, leading RI’s compliance and quality, driving RI’s analytics forward and heading up RI’s strategic expansion initiatives.””
— RI International CEO and President David Covington
PHOENIX, ARIZONA, MARICOPA, June 16, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- RI International CEO and President David W. Covington announced today that Paul Galdys, MBA, CPRP, has joined the Company as Deputy CEO. Prior to joining RI, Galdys served as an Assistant Director at AHCCCS (Arizona’s Medicaid agency) in support of $12 billion in health care service delivery annually. His AHCCCS Division of Health Care Advocacy and Advancement included the Office of Individual and Family Affairs and the Office of Human Rights; advancing the voice of individuals engaged in behavioral health services and their family members in shaping Arizona’s healthcare system.

“Paul’s track record of strong leadership in behavioral health combined with his strategic agility, business acumen and mission-driven orientation makes him uniquely qualified to serve as RI International’s Deputy CEO,” said Covington. “He and I worked very well together when we served as executives for Magellan Health and he’s a perfect fit for RI International’s team. In this newly created role, Paul’s responsibilities will include supporting me with the strategic plan, leading RI’s compliance and quality, driving RI’s analytics forward and heading up RI’s strategic expansion initiatives.”

“I strongly believe in the importance of data and the use of technology to improve health care. However, even the best of resources will often fall short without the inclusion of peer support throughout the service delivery system,” said Galdys, who is a Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner. “RI International is known as a leader in crisis and peer services, and is quickly gaining traction with its Crisis Now and Peer 2.0 initiatives. In addition, RI is an analytics innovator, recently launching an electronic bed board CrisisTech360--replacing white boards with high-tech data capture, dashboards and reliable reports--through a joint venture with Behavioral Health Link out of Georgia. RI is a future-forward organization that is making a difference for the people they serve. This is a terrific opportunity and I’m excited to have joined this team."
