As the leader of The Focus Group, an HMA Company’s transformation service offering, Alex has worked with dozens of health systems and healthcare providers to reimagine how services are delivered to patients, how payments and contracts are structured with insurers, and how operational systems and processes are designed. As an advisor on mergers and acquisitions transactions, he partners closely with executives and investors to determine how best to optimize their portfolio of assets – from consolidations and dispositions to acquisitions and integrations.
