Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital – Manager of Decision Support Services. Tom managed a team of five analysts, tasked with developing an understanding of revenue flow and deficiencies and line profitability. This led to a variety of research initiatives to identify reimbursement trends and developed specific strategies for improving reimbursement and identified methods to improve revenues via managing margin and mix of services. Tom was a key member of the M&A team, integral at managing the due diligence and analysis of the potential merger between Stanford, LPCH, and UCSF. He developed a very comprehensive understanding of the issues relative to the then current reimbursement system for healthcare and how the current system's mechanics were leading to increasingly higher invoiced costs with no tangible gains in real income.
Ramsell Holding Corporation – COO. Brought in to address a serious financial issue, including accounting and cash management problems, he was asked to stay on as COO to stabilize, restructure and expand the company from a family-owned single structure to a multi-tiered organization. He expanded offerings from a single product to a multi-product scalable platform of solutions. Realigned, recruited and retrained management and staff, and prepared the founder’s son for succession as CEO. He repurposed an existing nonprofit entity and managed litigations and government relations. He tripled the number of customers and gained $1B+ in new contracts in five years. He oversaw the redevelopment of an integrated non-profit and developed a second non-profit. He conceptualized and developed a demonstration project of a truly patient centered system that provided simple easy access to needed services with a fully integrated virtual care group tied to a full coordination of care and benefits infrastructure that reduced duplicated services, constrained fraud and abuse, lowered cost and improved outcomes. This system redefined the healthcare continuum into four discrete integrated and necessary legs: Participants – formerly known as patients, Facilitators – people that help participants find and gain access to care and benefits, Providers – people who provide the care, including Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, Therapists etc. and Sponsors – individuals, corporations and governmental organizations that pay for the care.
