I work in healthcare because I am passionate about helping hospitals and providers continuously improve the quality of their care while making it more accessible and affordable to patients. I particularly enjoy helping organizations prepare for value-based reimbursement. This may involve building a financial model, developing a contracting strategy, or creating the framework for an accountable care organization.

A member of ECG’s Contracting and Reimbursement practice, Jim helps physician groups, hospitals, and other providers improve their reimbursement from commercial payors under traditional payment methodologies and more innovative payment arrangements, such as accountable care organizations and bundled payments. In particular, he works with clients to identify financial opportunities in both value-based and fee-for-service contracts, assess organizations’ readiness for value-based reimbursement models, and develops provider participation criteria to ensure the provision of high-quality, low-cost, and accessible healthcare. Prior to joining ECG, Jim worked as a Marketing Specialist for a company that partners with health systems and physicians to coordinate care by providing complete alignment strategies.
