His experience in both the public and private sectors over the past twenty years affords him a unique perspective on legal, policy and business issues facing the health care community. Health care organizations -- including providers, vendors, and payors -- and other health care related businesses, of all shapes and sizes, rely on him to help them navigate the maze of regulatory and business issues facing them on a daily basis.
