Welcome! I’m Alison Curfman, a physician leader who is passionate about creating new models of care to improve healthcare for patients. I am a practicing pediatric emergency physician and have spent most of my career focused on building new and creative solutions that use technology and new payment models to bring healthcare to the patients who need it most. With over a decade of visionary leadership in digital health, my work focuses on technology-enabled care and makes high-quality healthcare available to underserved populations.

In 2022, I co-founded Imagine Pediatrics, a value-based pediatric medical group that works with Medicaid Managed Care Organizations to improve the lives and outcomes of children with chronic diseases.

Spearheading its incubation, launch, and scale, I’ve cultivated expertise in:

  • Value-based care
  • Digital platform development
  • Clinical model design and validation
  • Rigorous quality standards
  • Medicaid transformation
  • And building a successful, multi-state medical group that is caring for nearly 25,000 patients after just one year of incubating the concept and 18 months of operating.


As a fractional chief medical officer and advisor, I engage with early-stage companies. I specialize zero -> one growth, building the right strategies and connections to launch companies that will transform the healthcare industry with innovative solutions.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee, with my husband and my four children.
