Having worked with health systems, payors, and vendors to develop population health strategies, contract portfolios, and care delivery models, Catherine brings experience and guidance to clients who are just beginning their value-based care journey as well as those with robust systems already in place. She has experience deploying technology to make the most of high-value opportunities while also laying the foundation for long-term success and working as a leader at health systems to launch multiple patient-centered programs.

Before joining ECG, Catherine worked for the Advisory Board Company managing a team focused on supporting clients’ care management and population health analytics efforts. She led an ROI documentation campaign that resulted in more than $33 million in ROI recognized by health systems, mainly focused on strategies that resulted in decreased ED usage, inpatient stays, and overall cost reduction for patients with multiple chronic conditions. She also worked directly with ACOs and CINs, taking population health care transformation efforts from written goals to concrete implementation.

Catherine’s devotion to healthcare stems from her years leading a patient advocacy and support organization for women facing cancer. Patient health continues to drive and animate her work.
