I help healthcare, life sciences, health IT, investors, associations and government organizations navigate and leverage evolving changes in technology, policy, regulation, and market dynamics. I am an accomplished subject matter expert, researcher, consultant, and professional speaker. Technology is ahead of policy and regulation in healthcare and life sciences, and I help organizations find key opportunities amid change and chaos. I work with product development, marketing, policy and sales teams, and use custom market research results to create sustainable market and business advantages.
I am passionate about keeping the patient/consumer as the focus of the industry, despite the latest IT application, device or fad. Specialty areas of focus include: consumer empowerment tools and processes; the new generation of clinical and operational analytics; best practices to address the complex needs of safety net populations; care/disease management solutions; precision medicine; and emerging reimbursement and care delivery models.
I began my healthcare career in high school through clinical internships and paid part-time positions in a community hospital. My experience later included positions with hospital administration, health IT vendors, and industry associations. In the last 32 years I have seen the industry evolve, grow, and now experience epic change in the form of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and whatever "Repeal and Replace" could bring.
