Boston, MA - December 4, 2017—ECG Management Consultants, a national consulting firm working exclusively with healthcare providers, is pleased to announce that Scott Cullen, MD, has joined the firm’s Managed Care Services (MCS) Division as a principal.

ECG principal and MCS division leader Terri Welter welcomed Dr. Cullen and spoke about the importance of care delivery transformation in the industry.

“We are delighted to be adding an incredibly talented clinical leader with a proven track record of building a consulting practice and delivering high-quality services to his clients,” Welter said. “Scott brings a wealth of experience to ECG and our clients. Care delivery transformation is central to the progress we’re making in the industry to improve value and the patient experience. The addition of a key leader in this arena to help us build upon our clinical integration and care delivery transformation services is exciting.”

Dr. Cullen brings 23 years’ experience in clinical delivery, management, and consulting to ECG, and has led work at some of the nation’s top health systems and integrated delivery networks. He has led the development of strategy for population health transformation and value-based care for more than a dozen organizations, including the largest for-profit health system in the country.

Dr. Cullen began his career in clinical family medicine practice before building his own EMR solution and transitioning to consulting.
