I had the pleasure of partnering with Jeff on a number of client activities over the recent years. Jeff has an extensive knowledge of laboratory and ancillary operations and brings with it a unique approach to client satisfaction.
His expertise, coupled with his outstanding financial acumen, provided the leverage for developing achievable recommendations for our clients.
Jeff’s subject matter expertise and ability to collaborate would be an asset for any potential client or partner and I strongly recommend his talents.
I would like to recognize Jeff as an acutely knowledgeable healthcare and laboratory consultant, who not only recognizes the mechanics involved in lab diagnostics, business, and operations, but also understands how to align current resources with existing client talent to get the solution implemented. It is difficult in our field to find a person who can take the complexity of hospital laboratory practice, find the artisanal ability to diffuse relevant knowledge back to the client, and articulate the vision for his projects to his stakeholders. Jeff is bold enough to identify and communicate potential roadblocks before they become an issue. I have also seen his project management skills employed in full force working under strict client deadlines. He had been instrumental during the conversion project for a highly-recognized pediatric hospital to a point where our organization coveted his ability to drive momentum towards completion on a large, multi-million dollar project. Amid a highly competitive healthcare environment, you won’t find a more skilled consultant in our industry who understands the path that hospitals, health systems, and their laboratories must trod down in order to be relevant in a value-based reimbursement environment that our industry is quickly moving towards.
Jeff is an outstanding professional. He has a deep understanding of the lab services area within healthcare. He can quickly identify and implement performance improvement opportunities for his clients. His strong interpersonal skills allow him to develop strong relationships with his client team members as well. Jeff also has strong financial and accounting skills which allow him to be effective outside of the lab area. For instance, at one client, Jeff successfully created an analysis which compared scenarios of the financial impact of closing a hospital campus. He developed the P&L impact analysis and was able to clearly demonstrate the changes in profitability of the new entity. I welcome Jeff to our project team when we have a client engagement.
Jeff has a great understanding of both the finances and operations of labs. I found him to be professional, client-focused and detailed in his work. He was strong and valuable member of my team.
Jeff’s work with the laboratory was exceptional! He asked all of the right questions to determine where cost savings or changes to processes should occur and not only found cost savings for our site but our entire System. His extensive knowledge of laboratory business was clearly evident.
