Soumi Saha is the Senior Vice President of Government Affairs at Premier – a leading healthcare improvement company uniting an alliance of more than 4,400 U.S. hospitals and 250,000 continuum of care providers to transform healthcare. Both a pharmacist and lawyer, Saha’s career has been dedicated to driving innovations in high-quality, cost-effective healthcare and resilient supply chains.
Under her leadership, Premier has become a national authority in ensuring the perspective of our nation’s healthcare providers is represented in Washington, D.C. – and in advancing policies that both address vulnerabilities and modernize the U.S. healthcare system. Since COVID-19’s onset, Premier achieved more than 50 critical legislative and regulatory changes to help our nation respond to COVID-19 and future public health emergencies. Saha’s work directly resulted in the introduction and passage of the Mitigating Emergency Drug Shortages (MEDS) Act, which was signed into law as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020.
Before joining Premier, Saha held positions with the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP), Kaiser Permanente and CVS/Caremark. She holds a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and a Juris Doctor (JD) with a concentration in health law from the University of Maryland.
