My Why is simple: To improve the quality of life of those we serve through healthcare and financial strategies.
Given that the U.S. spends $3.6 trillion on healthcare, the system is ripe for solutions.
The good news is that the solutions are out there!
We pay more than anyone else in the world for outcomes worse than any developed country. But providers, health systems, and consultants are banding together to help companies pay less for better outcomes.
It’s estimated that 30% of our healthcare spending is on waste. But it’s possible for companies to identify and eliminate this waste, redirecting their employees to better care and improving the bottom line performance of their health plan.
And the average American family is spending more and more on their health insurance every year, with the threat of medical debt induced bankruptcy looming over them. But companies have an ability to drastically improve their employees experience with the healthcare industry and reduce the threat of severe financial distress due to healthcare.
To do this, I help companies create best-in-class benefits.
I show organizations how to create data-driven approaches to population health management and healthcare strategy to create better benefits, at lower costs. And I love to see my clients use their improved benefits platform to support their business as they fulfill their unique purpose.
Ask me how a Strategic Healthcare Plan might benefit your company!
