I value the work I perform with ECG because of the emphasis we place on serving our clients in the healthcare community. Working closely with our clients and helping them become successful is truly a rewarding experience.

Chris’s rich understanding of information technology (IT) systems within payor and provider health organizations enables him to help ECG clients as they optimize their existing IT infrastructure or implement new systems. He has extensive experience in system consolidation, system development, operational improvement, revenue cycle, and business process redesign, giving him an informed perspective of the challenges faced by hospitals and physician groups in today’s dynamic technology environment.

Chris has extensive knowledge of the IT requirements of payor and provider organizations. As a member of ECG’s IT practice, he helped lead HealthSpan, Inc., a payor organization in Ohio, through a claims-processing optimization project to identify functionality gaps and recommend solutions to increase claims-processing speed and accuracy. In addition, he worked with Adventist Health System to map out its revenue cycle work flows in preparation for an athenahealth EHR implementation. Chris has also helped various clients perform internal IT assessments to identify gaps in functionality or areas for operational improvement and cost savings.
