I didn’t start my career in healthcare, but my first healthcare-related position as an operations manager for a blood bank in New York uncovered a passion for this profession that has driven me ever since. Healthcare providers face complicated, messy, and life-impacting decisions and challenges every day. Healthcare IT holds tremendous potential to make them more effective in meeting those challenges, but it takes effort to get it right. Helping my clients accomplish their goals has been, and continues to be, the greatest motivation and reward of my professional life. I love what I do.

Paul’s healthcare career has spanned nearly 25 years, the last 18 of which have been focused in IT and operations advisory consulting. He is an accomplished strategic adviser with a reputation for delivering pragmatic, objective, and actionable guidance to his clients. He has distinguished himself as a creative consultant and leader in a variety of healthcare provider settings throughout the country. Healthcare executives tasked with large-scale change initiatives rely on Paul’s ability to clarify challenges and facilitate collaboration across a wide range of stakeholders.

Paul’s client engagements have involved strategic planning, IT vendor selections, and contract negotiations, with particular depth in large, complex health systems and provider organizations, such as Tenet Healthcare Corporation, Bon Secours Health System, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, and Houston Methodist. He has specialty provider experience with leading cancer centers, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering, MD Anderson, Moffitt, and Fox Chase Cancer Centers. As a frequent adviser in the evaluation and selection of IT applications and services, Paul has deep expertise in the healthcare IT marketplace, with current knowledge of all major EHR vendors in the acute and ambulatory settings, as well as many niche systems and vendors in analytics, interoperability, and population health.
