Ed Gamache has completed more than 50 formal presentations on healthcare quality, policy, and developing an effective organizational value proposition. He has made a career of observing the US healthcare system and frequently shares his observations of reality and opportunity to change the industry that drives nearly one fifth of the economy.
Presentations are fresh with ever changing content and reflect the most up to date information and concepts. Data and information sources are reliable and valid including the Commonwealth Fund data site, Kaiser Family Foundation, Medicare open source, Dartmouth Atlas for Healthcare and his own real life experiences.
His concepts are more than provocative, they challenge the status quo of the current system that has been built by the very political system that now criticizes and plans on reforming what they describe as out of control.
His ability to articulate the weaknesses of current efforts to use quality performance measures in small rural hospitals has given him national recognition for his expertise and vision of what needs to change, how it needs to change and what needs to happen.
Most importantly, he has the ability to tailor and make unique his presentations for each audience. He always receives good evaluations that most frequently hear from attendees, “I just like to hear you speak"
