I have been an independent healthcare communications consultant specializing in health, medicine, and health policy for consumer, medical, and corporate audiences since September 1999.
My particular specialty is healthcare reform, with in-depth knowledge around the Affordable Care Act; new healthcare delivery models, including Accountable Care Organizations and Patient-Centered Medical Homes; Medicare and Medicaid policy; value-based purchasing; health information technology; quality and cost issues; managed care; and patient empowerment.
I am also one of only a handful of medical writers who can confidently
communicate about the juxtaposition of healthcare reform and the clinical side of medicine for a variety of audiences, ranging from consumers to physicians to healthcare organizations, businesses, and vendors.
I bring more than 25 years experience in the healthcare field as a newspaper reporter covering health and medicine for two major daily papers; provider relations manager for a mid-sized managed care organization; book editor and author; and, for the last 15 years, an independent medical communications consultant.
