Empowering Healthcare Innovation

Guiding Healthcare Transformation

I provide unparalleled guidance and expertise to early-stage healthcare ventures, fueling the DESIGN, BUILD, and successful LAUNCH of transformative companies.

My work centers on advancing digital health, building scalable enterprises, prioritizing patient care, and driving creative innovation.  

I offer collaborative expert insights and can create and implement a plan to validate your clinical model for strategic growth and success.

Clinical Product Foundations Assessment

My assessment framework uses a standardized approach to comprehensively assess your clinical product or model. Through this detailed process, I create customized recommendations and a strategic roadmap for you to follow.

01. Comprehensive Product Assessment

  • First, I conduct structured meetings with key stakeholders to gather data about your organizational goals, clinical model, technology product, staffing structure, outcome measures, metrics, and data collection methodologies.

02. Gap Analysis

  • Next, I analyze the findings from the product assessment to identify opportunities for improvement.
  • I use my extensive expertise in population health, digital health, Medicaid, medical group formation, and rapid startup growth to develop actionable recommendations that address specific areas for improvement.

03. Strategic Roadmap

  • During our strategy session, I provide you with a list of recommended next steps and a preliminary strategic roadmap to implement.
  • We will discuss resource requirements and timelines for rapid, scientifically sound validation of your model.
  • At the end, you will be equipped with a detailed product review, gap analysis, actionable recommendations, scientific study design, and a strategic roadmap to achieve your company’s goals.

Fractional Chief
Medical Officer

Many early-stage companies require deep clinical expertise to build solid foundations, but hiring a Chief Medical Officer does not fit into their early-stage strategy. I thrive in the early-stage environment and take an agile approach to solving complicated problems.

01. Discovery

  • During discovery, I provide you with expert clinical analysis of your product and model.
  • I identify gaps in knowledge and facilitate connections with experts across the field so you can make informed decisions.

02. Design

  • As a highly creative, deeply connected physician leader, I bring new ideas to your team and iteratively assess the impact of various solutions.
  • I integrate my clinical expertise with agile design practices to create a product that prioritizes both quality and scalability.

  • I use a compelling blend of data and patient stories to give your team credibility and to move hearts and minds of investors, payers, providers, policymakers, and other partners.
  • I help you successfully secure the anchor contracts you need to launch.
  • Using my deep understanding of the product and model, I help you build the foundational team to create a viable product from your concept.

Clinical Advisor or
Board Member

As a Board Member, I leverage my healthcare leadership experience to help guide strategy and decision-making, and to position your organizations for future challenges.

01. Strategic Guidance and Insight

  • I support founders and healthcare executives through a rapidly changing environment and lean on resiliency and purpose to adapt to challenges.
  • Through individual advisory work, I bring strategic insights from across the market to you and your team and offer a fresh perspective for problem-solving.
