Its all about the
Dennis is a thought leader committed to rejuvenating healthcare eco-systems and shifting the paradigm from patient to person.
Life is not always easy. We get stuck in our ways and often get distracted by the foliage rather than the roots and the trunk. Our goals get fuzzy and our metrics become misaligned. Charting a new course, you can benefit from a disruptive pioneer to guide you.
I align and integrate diverse ecosystems to create a comprehensive approach to address complex and challenging issues. Essentially, I want to help others become vanguards rather than victims as each of us has the potential of being either or both. I leverage my academic background (MPH from Harvard and Ph.D. from Boston College) to rejuvenate health and healthcare eco-systems and shift the paradigm from patient to person to help people add years to their lives and life to their years. I drive cross-industry change serving on the American Heart Assn’s Technology and Innovation Council and on the boards of several businesses and start-ups.
I was a major force in the early Hospice Movement and worked closely across both aisles and CMS in helping to promote the Hospice Medicare benefit. I also served as an Advisor to President’s and White House Commissions, the Office of the National Coordinator, and National Ethics Legislation and for two US Supreme Court decisions. I authored and published eight books and contribute to the literature extensively.
