Thomas Riley is a visionary leader with more than 30 years of executive experience in health care and education. Tom led three companies as CEO before joining Seniorlink in 2009 as President and COO. He became CEO in 2013, succeeding the Founder and Chairman. In four years as CEO, Tom has stewarded the now-500 person company through a phase of sustained growth as well as the transition from being a service-oriented organization to a technology-driven provider of care collaboration solutions.
At Seniorlink Tom led the expansion of the company’s intensive in-home care model from serving a single state to serving six states today. In this time Seniorlink also created an ambitious set of evidence-based clinical protocols focused on improving care quality and outcomes, and became the first HCBS provider to gain the highest level of accreditation for Case Management (CM) from NCQA. Tom also led Seniorlink through the development and launch of Vela, a care collaboration platform designed to allow all members of a patient’s care team to communicate and collaborate seamlessly. Vela powers Seniorlink’s care collaboration solutions, which are now being piloted by leading ACOs and health plans.
Prior to Seniorlink, Tom was a board member and interim Chairman/CEO of Brown schools, which provides specialized residential treatment and education programs for at-risk youth. Tom was also CEO of Care Advantage, a provider of high-cost case management services, and the CEO of The MENTOR Network, a company focused on providing quality, community-based services to children, adults and elders.
Tom was recently appointed to Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s inaugural Council to Address Aging. Comprised of leaders across public and private sectors, the Council focuses on developing a plan to improve efforts to support healthy aging in Massachusetts, and achieve the goal of making the Commonwealth the most age-friendly state for people of all ages
