Dr. Fred Volkman, Community Volunteer
After practicing pediatrics for over 10 years in Chicago, his career evolved more into the population health space. He was the medical director or chief medical officer for a variety of health care entities. Most of his focus was developing strategic and tactical ways to positively impact the health of defined populations. Those were high level positions, but he felt “his career was getting too far up the food chain to feel the impact of his work.” In 2007 he decided to get back to basics and joined a health plan (Select Health of South Carolina) that was contracted by SCDHHS to serve the Medicaid population. That was a great fit for a pediatrician with experience in population health. He believes they did a lot to improve health education and access to care. They developed an innovative care management program that integrated behavioral and social determinants of health.
He retired from Select Health in 2004 to start a consulting practice that mostly focused on disadvantaged populations. SCDHHS asked him to be a consulting medical director, continue serving on their QTIP pediatric program and the SC Birth Outcomes Initiative. He also did work in Iowa for their Medicaid program. One of his most satisfying endeavors was with SCDSS and their Foster Care program. DSS was under a Federal Court order to improve several aspects of foster care. For 18 months he worked collaboratively with SCDHHS, SCDSS and his former employer, Select Health; to implement the court ordered directives. The pandemic presented a challenge for a lot of his work. He has wound down most of his consulting but has become more involved with hobbies and volunteer work.
