Why I'm Involved
I believe that Alliance has the respect of the third party payers especially CMS and the MACs. The Alliance does wonderful work in representing all of us to deal with the policy threats that keep coming at us from all directions. As CMO of Restorix Health and member of AAWCM, I know that my participation on the Alliance Board will have a direct and immediate impact. The Alliance does an incredible job proactively coming up with strategies for oncoming threats. I also enjoy working with the Alliance executive team and my fellow board members who share the same level of dedication towards improving the wound care delivery system so we all can provide our patients with the highest level of care. Our first and most important focus is on helping people who are suffering from wounds and making sure that we are their advocates.
