Lisa Wickens-Alteri of Capital Health Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 4, 2018 / -- Healthcare is constantly changing and evolving. Today transformative changes are occurring across the country, as new reimbursement models require quality over quantity, regulations demand more while there are growing numbers of patients in need of care. The shift toward population health management and health care integration has created opportunities for some providers and unintended consequences for others.

Capital Health Consulting is a boutique government relations and consulting firm developed in response to the rising demands of health and human service clients. Led by its founder and president Lisa Wickens-Alteri, a registered nurse by background, Capital Health Consulting is comprised of a group of clinicians with over 100 years of experience in both policy development and government for the Department of Health for New York State.

“We understand government, healthcare, quality improvement and health & human service operations,” says Lisa. “Unlike a lot of the government relations firms, we're busy all year round as we are also clinicians with field expertise in hospitals, nursing homes and the New York Department of Health. There's always patients in need throughout the healthcare continuum and we are here to assist to find solutions.”

Capital Health Consulting works with hospitals, nursing homes, pediatrics, federally health qualified centers, providers and agencies that serve individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities, as well as individuals that require services for substance abuse disorders and behavioral health.

“We work with our health and human service clients to develop a strategy to benefit the individuals they serve, improve their business models so they can serve more individuals or assist them to meet the needs of their patients,” says Lisa. “And we only represent clients that help or benefit a patient on the other end, no matter how far that may be.”

Every single health or human services provider that delivers services across the country has to live under the rules and regulations of the state and federal government. CHC can do everything from teach and train staff to prepare for a compliance reviews by the state or federal government to management consulting with boards of large institutions. CHC also offers consulting for developing new programs for the state to fit the needs of the clients.

“We happen to all come from health, human service and government backgrounds,” says Lisa. “We know the rules and regulations of providers-- hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, adult homes, dialysis centers – have to follow to be a quality provider. We also know that if there's any issues that they need to fix, we can fix it.

As clinicians, CHC possesses both clinical knowledge and empathy with an understanding of medical conditions and expected outcomes at the bedside. On the government side, they know how to quantify and deliver a message that educates the individuals in government who can help.

“We have the expertise of healthcare, of working “in” healthcare, working in the bureaucracy of government responsible to oversee healthcare, and we've earned the respect of people on all sides, including patients. That's what I think makes us effective.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Lisa Wickens-Alteri in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on April 6th at 10am EDT.
