Angela Park, PharmD is a Clinical Pharmacy Practitioner and serves as a Program Specialist for the Office of Healthcare Transformation within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Dr. Park is a skilled program manager, transformational leader, coach, and mentor. She is also a Lean, Six Sigma and change practitioner, and advanced facilitator.
From 2014 through 2019, Dr. Park co-led the Hepatitis C Innovation Team (HIT) National Collaborative. The HIT focused on empowering regional teams to utilize Lean process improvement to improve hepatitis C virus (HCV) care from diagnosis through cure.
Dr. Park worked with Rachel Gonzalez as part of a leadership group, coaching teams to set aspirational goals for each step of the hepatitis care cascade and planning and facilitating a virtual collaborative that was supplemented by annual in-person meetings. The HIT National Collaborative guided teams to implement practices that ultimately enabled clinicians to identify, treat, and cure over 100,000 Veterans of HCV. This work demonstrated the resilience of VA personnel and Veterans to overcome system-wide and context-specific barriers in service to a greater mission.
Dr. Park has also led projects within VA on improving anticoagulation care, expanding precision oncology service—including establishing a National TeleOncology program—and establishing enterprise-wide capability for COVID genomic sequencing.
