When cancer comes into your life and affects a loved one, it can turn your world upside down. There are no stronger people than those battling this terrible disease. Working in cancer care, I get to see how patients and caregivers overcome these obstacles every day. I get to see dedicated nurses and physicians working tireless hours to provide the high-quality care each patient needs. We are all battling this disease together. I am privileged to work hand in hand with hospital administrators, physicians, and staff, driving change together, to save the next wave of lives impacted by this disease. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

A catalyst for driving transformation in healthcare, Ryan helps organizations develop actionable in-sights by creating powerful analytics, building dynamic teams, and fostering a culture of change. Ryan is a firm believer that every organization has the opportunity to disrupt an industry. Having spent several years working for Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Ryan has built up capabilities across all major hospital functions—fostering transformative enterprise strategies and business partnerships, building direct-to-consumer service lines, and creating high-impact operation-al improvements in revenue cycle, supply chain, and patient access.

Before joining ECG, Ryan led the complete redesign of CTCA’s patient access function through centralizing and optimizing five core functional areas, driving down operational cost by 10% to 50% per department and creating $8 million in annual cost savings. Additionally, he developed the organization’s first comprehensive service line strategy, paving the way for future growth for a $3 billion portfolio of service lines. Ryan also helped develop innovative partnership models for CTCA to partner with local physician groups, with the potential of generating $8 million to $10 million in business per partnership.
