Torshira Moffett, MPH, is a senior program officer at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS). In this role, she works on initiatives related to improving care delivery for older adults and people with disabilities, including individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid and people who require long-term services and supports (LTSS). She leads a variety of CHCS learning collaboratives that provide states and managed care plans with the tools and resources to implement innovative programs, such as the Multisector Plan for Aging Learning Collaborative and the Institutional Long-Term Care Carve-in Learning Community.
Prior to joining CHCS, Torshira served as a director of product development at the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). In this role, she led market research efforts to identify opportunities to develop new accreditation and recognition programs for emerging care delivery models (e.g., virtual care, episodic/convenient care, and accountable care organizations). In collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, she managed the development of standards and guidelines for new and existing programs to align with industry best practices. She led the development of NCQA’s Case Management Accreditation and served as subject matter expert for the LTSS accreditation programs, which address populations with complex care needs. She also served as faculty for the LTSS Best Practices Academy, an online forum for health plans, home- and community-based organizations, and other stakeholders to learn strategies for achieving and maintaining accreditation, engage with NCQA and external experts, and learn from other organizations.
Torshira holds a master’s degree in public health with a concentration in health policy from George Washington University. She received a bachelor’s degree in sociology and political science from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
When not working, Torshira enjoys going to the museums in D.C., sewing and other creative endeavors, and watching Carolina basketball.
